Need Oracle AFP Formdef That Includes The Ability To Offset The Printed Output (Doc ID 2660602.1)

Last updated on APRIL 20, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Documaker - Version 12.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Company produces PDF documents and AFP output with IDS and Documaker RP. 

It is my understanding the F1FMMST and F1OFFCU Formdefs only handle up to 4 paper/printer trays. I believe the only differences between the two Formdefs is that F1OFFCU has additional copygroups which allows the output to offset. For example, the "PLUO" copygroup means that a form is Portrait, Letter-sized, Tray 1 (or Upper tray) and Simplex. The F1OFFCU Formdef also includes the "PLUOO" which includes the same print options but adds the ability to "offset" or jog the printer so that the printed output is easier to handle. Please note there are other "offsetting" copygroups besides the one in my example.

It looks like the F1DOCUMK Formdef (which is part of the Documaker RP installation) allows for Trays 5 through 9 and possibly additional paper sizes, etc. However, there doesn't seem to be any offsetting ability. We need a Formdef from Oracle that does the same as F1DOCUMK but includes extra AFP copygroups to allow offsetting of the output.
