I have a document with 4 layouts to be printed as two duplex sheets on separate media (1st page on perf, 2nd page on letter paper). I have used the page setup for the layouts 1..2 and 3..4, specifying either color or cover for 1..2 and letter for 3..4. I am printing to a Digimaster printer [Kodak EX110 PS V12] and cannot get the document to print from separate drawers without selecting "Split job every 1 record". I have over 1500 records and my data is presorted. Any suggestions? Is this a document setup or a printer issue?

Hi Kalola79,

You might want to try the "embed postscript" option, which will allow you to implement what is called "subset finishing". Your printer will receive a single job, but will be able to know when to switch the finishing options inside that job.

Look at the default templates provided with PSM, and see if one of them could do the job. Please open a support ticket if you need assistance understanding how to use that feature.

Thanks. Regards,
