Ops, I forgot to address the mail note to you specifically and copy the
ipp list.  I was hoping you help with the answer.

Discussion on wd-ippjobprinterext3v10-20111013

 

In Section 6.4 I don't understand the idea of "... the Printer would
prefer to use".  Does this the Printer will override Job Ticket values?
While, the printer has limitation or constraints which are reported in
the capability information; what does it mean when the printer has
"copies-preferred" (section 5.3.2) - does this mean the User wants 3
copies but the Printer prefers to only print 2 !!!  Very Strange.
There could be a concept of "recommended" attributes that would apply to
a very small set of attributes (copies is not one of them) and would be
presented to the User in such a way as to identify it as "recommended".

*      The same comment applies to almost all the other "preferred"
attributes. 

 

Glen
