Printing Batch Print Jobs

You can configure Reflection to accumulate output from a series of print events before you print. You might want to do this, for example, if you're connected to a network printer that is temporarily inoperative—you can collect all your printed output and print it all at once when the printer is again available.

To print a batch of print jobs

  1. From the Quick Access Toolbar, click Print, and then, in the Print dialog box, click Setup.
  2. Under Multiple screens per page, select Close printer manually.

    When you print with this option selected, the print output is spooled until you click Close Printer on the Status bar.

  3. Clear the Auto formfeed box.

    This prevents Reflection from ejecting the page after each print event — if you're printing to a printer this saves paper; if you're printing to a file, this prevents a page break from being inserted in the output file.

    Clearing this setting can also be useful if your host program sends a series of open printer and close printer escape sequences.
