Number of copies is broke? - 11/05/08 12:12 PM

Basically I am printing a book and I need the number of books printed based on a val in a field in the database.

In PSM5 if I did number of copies based on a val in a field it would print all the layouts in order once then loop back and do it again and repeat until it reached the val.

But in PSM6 it just prints each layout times the val. So now I'm getting layout1 x val in a row, layout2 x val in a row, layout3 x val in a row etc.

This has completely broke what I am trying to do. mad

bschwall,

To do what you want to do, set the number of copies to 1 for each layouts. Then, go to File->Print, and put the number of copies you want there. And then, check the "Collate" box next to it. That should print the job the way you want.

Regards,
Rapha

Number of copies need to be driven by a field in the database that I am linked to.

It use to work perfectly in PSM5.

Changing the Mirroring option from 'based on driver settings' to 'flip on long edge' under repetition in preferences has fixed this.
