For dimensionally large documents
large documents (like engineering drawings, etc.) you need to select
the correct paper size in the XPS Document Writer. Highlight the XPS Document Writer
and click on the 'Preferences' button, then click on 'Advanced', and select the paper size.
It is recommended that you simply use the file name
Microsoft XPS Document Writer dialog window. Never use extensions such as .tif, pdf,
etc. The file must be saved to a folder on the C drive. The folder name is not important
at this stage. If you must save the file to another driver letter, the default setting must be
changed in Setup. Setup is accessible via the File menu.
If you use the xprint.xps or x.xps as the file name in the Microsoft XPS Document Writer
(as is recommended), then the temporary XPS file will be automatically deleted once you
save your final file as TIFF, PDF, etc. If you use another file name, you will get a prompt
asking you if you want to delete the temporary XPS file (not all operating systems).
Some users may want to create XPS files outside of the Informatik xPrint. In that case,
the .xps extension should be disabled in the Setup. Once disabled, only file names
xprint.xps and x.xps keyword will activate Informatik xPrint.
Windows 8 may need some special handling. Windows 8 by default creates
output files (files with the .oxps extension). xPrint does not support oxps files, so you
must enter the .xps extension with the file name, for example x.xps or xprint.xps.
Alternatively you can pick the ocx format from the 'Save as type' dropdown. With the
Windows 8 (except the Premium Home version) you may want to change the default
extension in the Microsoft XPS Document Writer. See http://mail.informatik.com/faq.html.
Save the Document
When you are ready to save the document, specify or review the color-depth and
Click on the ‘Save Now’ button, specify the file ‘File name’ and ‘Save as type’. The file
type and/or the extension will determine the graphics format of the output file.
If you have specified default output folders in Setup (you can specify up to three often
used folders in Setup), click on one of the Default Dir menu items in the File menu.
In the Save As dialog, select the output folder and enter the file name together with a
compatible extension: .tif, .pdf, .png, .gif, .bmp , or .jpg. The extension is important; it
controls the format in which the document will be saved. Typically the folder and the file
name will be defaulted to the file name that you have specified in the Microsoft XPS
Document Writer, if any.
If the document has multiple pages and if you select TIFF or PDF output formats (the
only formats that support multiple pages in one file), then the document will be saved as
one multipage file. If you prefer to have serialized files, one file per page, request
serialization. See Serialization section in the user guide.
