    1 If {job:offset} is ON then, {job:offset.copy} and {job:offset.pages} are supported, and values for both may be set for a single Job Ticket within the following limits:

    • Both values may be set to 1.
    • If one value is set at 2 or higher, the second value MUST be set to 1.

    2 Both {job:paper.color} and {job:paper.usercolor} are supported, and values for both may be set for a single Job Ticket.

    3 If a workflow contains a Job Ticket Parser node and a Job Ticket Generator node, the metadata value {job:paper.unit} is handled as follows. The Job Ticket Parser node takes the {job:paper.unit} value and converts the Job Ticket Paper Size from its user-defined value (in or mm) to points. Downstream in the workflow, the Job Ticket Generator node converts point value back to the {job:paper.unit} original value (either in or mm).

    4 Both {job:paper.color[]} and {job:paper.usercolor[]} are supported and values for both may be set for a single Job Ticket.

    Tab Settings Metadata

    The metadata used in Tab and Bleed Tab nodes are described in the table that follows:

    Category Parameter Name Description Metadata Key Metadata Supported Values
    (NOT case-sensitive)
    JDF Job Ticket XPATH JDF Value Range
    Tab Settings Tab Paper Width Tab Paper Width in points.
    This value is determined by the value set for Basic Settings >Paper Unit.

    Example: If Job Ticket has a value of 9 inches (LetterTab), then the value is converted into 648 points in metadata.
    {job:tab.paper.w} 255.096 – 936 /JDF/kmbs:TabSettings/Media/@Dimension 255.096 – 936
    Tab Paper Height Tab Paper Height in points.
    This value is determined by the value set for Basic Settings >Paper Unit.

    Example: If Job Ticket has a value of 11 inches (LetterTab), then the value is converted into 792 points in metadata.
