PageRange in BatchProcessingOptions

Post by tifprinter » Mon Oct 20, 2008 8:37 am

Dear All,

When using the "PageRange" option in "BatchProcessingOptions" there seems to be a possible bug? where the printer iterates through all page even when the required page is printed...

Suppose there is a 400 pages TIF file.. and I give print 2nd page as PageRange Option... it will print the 2nd page (thought it takes time to load the TIF file too)... and then still loops through all 400 pages!

Now, when I try opening the TIF from the microsoft document viewer and then give the print command and specify the 60th page to print it is quite faster.

I am little confused :)

Can somebody comment, has anyone faced such issue?

Thanks
Tommy

The fact is Print2Flash converts documents to Flash by instructing Windows shell to print it using an application registered for printing of those types of files. This is how the standard Windows shell printing method works: it provides for printing only of whole documents without a capability to specify any part of it. PageRange property is just a workaround that can overcome this problem. Though the application sends all document pages, Print2Flash ignores some pages and accepts only some of them according to PageRange property. Currently there is no other way to convert documents with Print2Flash. We plan to provide some workarounf in future versions though.
