Set Document Information

Scroll Prev Top Next More

The Document Information feature allows basic descriptive information to be added to your output file. These descriptions are used by  many search engines to describe the document in their results list.

By default, all descriptive information fields are left empty. These descriptions will not auto-populate. Conversely, if a value is entered in these descriptive information fields, all files created will have the same entered description.

All document information settings are controlled through the profile.

Step by Step Instructions

1.Launch the TIFF Image Printer Dashboard.
