Print all PDF files into one single Print Job, set tray and staple options to this print job

Hi,

I have a cluster of reports where each report can have it's own printer settings.

See below cluster:

Cluster-1 doc1.pdf doc2.pdf doc3.pdf
Cluster-2 doc4.pdf doc5.pdf
Cluster-3 doc6.pdf doc7.pdf doc8.pdf doc9.pdf

I want to create one Print job which contains all the cluster reports with each report having their own printer settings.

Like:

tray1 staple doc1.pdf doc2.pdf doc3.pdf
tray2 staple doc4.pdf doc5.pdf
tray3 doc6.pdf doc7.pdf doc8.pdf doc9.pdf

Is this possible with verypdf? Let me know.

Thanks.

Yes, this is possible with VeryPDF PDFPrint Command Line, please by following steps to try,

1. Please run following command line to prompt the user Printer Dialog and save the printer settings to a disk file,
 
   pdfprint.exe -savedevmode D:\printer.dat -printer "Your Printer Name"

2. In the Printer Dialog, you can set following options, such as,

   set "Duplex" option to "Top-Top" or others;
   set default paper tray to "Tray 3" or others;
   set the paper size to "11x17" or others;
   set other options that you want;
   set staple to "on" or others,
   set fold or staple options,
  
   click "OK" to close Printer Dialog, you will get a D:\printer.dat file,

3. Please create a .txt file to contain all PDF filenames, one filename per line, with full path to these PDF files, e.g., you may create a D:\files.txt to include following lines,

D:\test\doc1.pdf
D:\test\doc2.pdf
D:\test\doc3.pdf

4. Please run following command line to load the devmode from disk file and set it to printer,
 
   pdfprint.exe -loaddevmode D:\printer.dat -printer "Your Printer Name" D:\files.txt

If you wish merge these PDF files into one print job, you need add "-mergeprintjobs" option, for example,

   pdfprint.exe -loaddevmode D:\printer.dat -printer "Your Printer Name" -mergeprintjobs D:\files.txt

These PDF files will be printed to target printer with the options you set in D:\printer.dat file, you can control tray and staple options at step #2, and apply these options to all PDF files which included in D:\files.txt file.

5. OK, you can print your PDF files with correct options now.

Hi,

A Report cluster will contains more then one report.
Each report can have their own printer properties.

As example a cluster with 2 reports:

Cluster: [CL1]
Reports:

1] Report-A
Tray-1
Staple
Double
Copies 3x

2] Report-B
Tray-3
Copies 2x

Before sending to the printer i have a preprocessor which will create the pdf files and put then in a directory on disk ready to be printed.

I will to create one Print Job that will consists out of Both reports in the cluster. Each report have their own properties.

Yes, I understand your meaning, you can use "-savedevmode" parameter to create a Printer Setting File for each report, then you can use this Printer Setting File to print the PDF files which included in this report easily.
