Managing User Printers for ALL-IN-1
the VMS form which references the module,
the ALL-IN-1 Printer Type which references the VMS form; and
the ALL-IN-1 Site Printer which references the Printer Type.
While this may seem confusing, remember that each object is used in a different context (VMS won't get
confused), and if all of the objects refer to the same graphic, naming conventions won't become an issue.
Adding a "LETTERHEAD" Printer
This step adds a Site Printer definition which uses the new printer type.
For sites which have many LN03 printers, it is preferable to define SYS$PRINT for each user at login time, based
on the user's "default" printer in the ALL-IN-1 PROFILE (see Application Note A1-4 Setting Default Printers for
Users). This avoids the necessity of creating a large number of specific printer definitions to accomodate several
Note that if letterhead output needs to be directed to another printer, the user can either redefine SYS$PRINT or
specify the appropriate Printer Type when printing to a different printer.
Add a new Site Printer.
This step entails linking the the printer type defined previously with a printer
destination which the users can reference.
