Default Print multiple copies from different trays.

I have an HP 4050TN that i would like to print multiple copies of
single page documents from multiple trays. I have tried setting the
preferences on the printer, at the aplication (word 2003 & quickbooks)
and on the computer. I have not found the right combination of
settings to make this happen. Ultimately what i would like to have
happen is that when i send the document to the printer i want it to
print from tray 3, which has preprinted forms in it, and the manual
feed so i have a hard copy of the order. where is my problem coming
in? any help would be appreciated.

Hi dan,

you need PrintMulti (http://www.lvbprint.de/bin/current/PrintMultiSetup.exe)
It allows you to print a document to multiple printers even from
different manufacturers with many option. Since there is no english
manual (but a detailed example is installed in the program path), here
are the necessary steps:
- install another printer (e.g. name it "formularprinter") with the same
driver as your destination printer (perhaps it is necessary to install
another printer and change the driver later)
- change the print processor to PrintMulti for the formularprinter
- add the following entries to the printmulti.ini in the c:\program
files\printmulti path:

[formularprinter]
Active=1
PrintSelf=0
ActionTray3=Print;PrintFromTray3
ActionCopy=Print;PrintManual

[PrintFromTray3]
Active=1
Printer=HP 4050TN
PaperSource1=257

[PrintManual]
Active=1
Printer=HP 4050TN
PaperSource1=258


the real entries for papersource1 can be read from the log file after a
first try. They differ from printer to printer and may look like:
1: 15 - Automatically Select
2: 259 - Drucker autom. Auswahl
3: 258 - Man. Zufuhr (Fach 1)
4: 257 - Fach 1

use the number or the text (e.g. "257" or "Fach 1", which means Tray 1)

There are many more entries, which could be useful for your duplicate
output:
NUp=4 prints four pages on a sheet
Color=0 prints the duplicate black/white for all output

Good luck

Dieter

Default Print multiple copies from different trays.

Dear All,

I have a HP Plotter 1050cm , i need to print the job to plotter (hardcopy) and at the same time to print it folder, save it and archive it, for later use.
The second ask is how to configure the Printmulti.ini for print simultaneously to 2 plotters the same plt job.
Can you guide me how to configure the printer/printmulti.ini to get results?

Please Advice
Best Regards

Zemach Vana
