PDF/JDF - tab issues on Ricoh C5310 from total flow prep


Well-known member
Folks, I'm trying to switch to using PDF/JDF out of Total Flow Prep instead of using Postscript. Going well except a couple of issues with tabs:

- With A4 tabs if I select "Apply settings to PDF and remove from job ticket" the tab then prints totally blank - not just the tab ear but the body of the tab sheet as well. Some imposition settings such as binding margin automatically select this option making it unavoidable.

- With A5 tabs - it's the opposite - I have to select "Apply settings to PDF.." else no tabs are fed through at all. But when I do select it, the A5 tabs print fine.

This is being fed into an E47B fiery.

Any thoughts are appreciated.
