Simple PJL commands fail on RICOH 8220s Printer - 10/27/18 01:09 PM

Guys,

Why the below PJL does not work when embedded as header to a JOB file using Planet Press Work flow ? It just prints on a separate page with job file on our RICOH 8220s printer.

It should print 3 sets of copies on a White paper. Media Type "White" is already defined on the 8220s Tray/Catalog settings and it works great with PlanetPress Design. I want to print without "PlanetPress Design". For example printing a test report.

@PJL JOB NAME = "Sample Job #1" <CR><LF>
@PJL SET COPIES = 3 <CR><LF>
@PJL SET MEDIATYPE = White <CR><LF>
