It expands the implementation guidance for output delivery applications and includes new support available in V5R3. The principal focus of the paper is intelligent routing. Intelligent routing is a set of capabilities that enable the profiled delivery of business documents and reports to customers and users in the most productive format print, Web, e-mail, fax. The intelligent routing functions are delivered with two different enabling interfaces. These include use of color in iSeries documents, interfacing intelligent routing with fax functions, PDF encryption, and performance considerations. Table of contents Chapter 1.

Recent versions of the driver may be called the Infoprint AFP printer driver. When the Add Printer Wizard pops up, click Next. On the Local or Network Printer dialog box, choose Local Printer and uncheck the option to automatically detect.
On the next screen you will be prompted to select the Manufacturer and Printer driver name. If you see them, choose the one that matches the output you wish to create. Click Next, and proceed to Step 6.
You can cancel out and choose to install the drivers using the Selective Setup utility or downloaded from the following Rochester Support Center knowledgebase document. On the Name Your Printer dialog box, confirm the driver name. You will be asked if you want this driver to be the Windows default printer. Choose No.
On the Printer Sharing dialog box, select Do not share this printer. On the Print Test Page dialog box, select No. For example, if you wish to create an overlay you should configure the driver to output data as an overlay; if creating a page segment, you should configure the driver to output data as a page segment.
To do this, right-click on the driver under your Printers folder and click Properties. At the bottom of that dialog box there should be a button marked Printing Preferences. Click on the Output Type field and select your desired output. If you need help deciding which type of output is required, click on the Question Mark in the upper right corner of the dialog box and then click on the Output Type field. The appropriate help screen will be shown. This can be done from any Windows application with print capability; however, there are some suggestions you should keep in mind.
If you are creating a custom electronic form like a purchase order or invoice that is tailored for your business, you will want to use an application which lets you draw lines and boxes and include text.
Typically, full page editing applications like word processors are best at this. If you are creating an electronic form that is an industry standard form, like a government tax form, look for an electronic version of the form to use to create your overlay. Many government forms are available in PDF format online, and the overlay will be of much higher quality if printed through Adobe Acrobat Reader to the IBM AFP driver than if you scan in the form and print it as an image from an imaging application.
If you are designing a logo, keep the following in mind. The output that is sent to the IBM AFP driver is dependant on your imaging application, so you may want to try printing from different applications to see how it looks.
Picture editing applications often do not have the layout options necessary to format a printout. This will cause your overlays and page segments to position incorrectly or be clipped. Try to use another application if possible. JPEG images, while typically the most commonly used, are lossy image formats, meaning that they do not store an image precisely, but rather try to save space by grouping similarly colored areas of the image.
This makes the file smaller, but of low quality when printed. These image types create much better print output. Note: The resulting AFP image will be the same size no matter what image type you start with. The size of the resulting AFP file depends on the quality and resolution of the input image. If you wish to create as high quality an image as possible, make your input image match the resolution of your AFP driver. If printing from Adobe Reader, there is an "Advanced" button on the print dialog.
Click that button, and then check the "Print as Image" box. Click on the Properties button to view the current driver settings: 1. Ensure that your Output type matches your desired output. If you leave it at Document it will not work. If you are creating an overlay that will printing on 8. To better control your margins, you can click on Clip Limits and change the default 0.
This will allow your image to print as far to the left and top as possible, and will allow you to define your image margins from your application rather than relying on the driver. If you are creating a page segment, ensure that you select the Output Type of page segment and then click Clip Limits to bring up those options as well. The Help dialog boxes will help you decide how to best clip your image. Remember that page segments do not really relate to page margins. The Clip Limits are really specifying that the AFP driver is selectively choosing which portion of the printed document or image will be used as the page segment.
Again, the Help text is very valuable for making clipping decisions. If Print Text as Graphics is set to On, any text included in your overlay or Page Segment will be converted to an image.
This is what you want. If you select Off for this option, your printed output will probably not match your Windows application. Save time by leaving this set to On. When your settings are set properly, click OK on this Properties screen and click Print or OK from your application to send the document to the driver.
Because you configured the driver to output to FILE rather than LPT1 or some other actual port, it will pop up a small dialog box asking you to save the file. You can save your AFP source file as whatever you want. The extension does not matter, but we recommend saving overlays as. OVL and page segments as. Double-click on your resulting. OVL or. PSG file, and you will be prompted to select the application that will open the files by default. Automated transfer with AFP Manager 1. Launch iSeries Navigator.
In the bottom-right panel click on the import option for the resource type you wish to create Overlays or Page Segments. Browse for the source file name, which is the name of the file that you generated when you "printed" through the IBM AFP printer driver from your Windows application.
Type the resource name, which is the name you want to use for the overlay. Browse for the library where you want the resource stored.
Once the Import dialog box has disappeared, verify that the object has been created. To begin the FTP, do the following: 1.
IBM eServer iSeries Printing VII: Infoprint Server Implementation
Infoprint Server consists of several components. It also uses other transform products, such as the Infoprint XT transform product. Figure 3. Using the Printer Inventory avoids the need to restart all the printers in a startup procedure when you change parameters. Only the printer for which parameters are changed needs to be restarted. Infoprint Server includes Infoprint Central, a print management application that runs on the web.
