Can you confirm the following understanding based on observation of existing implementations (I can't find reference within the JDF Spec to this) ?

My understanding is that an InsertSheet from LPP (or RunList) is not included in the RunIndex of DigitalPrintingParams.

The example below specifies 4 sides/sheets (0 ~ 3) which appears in LPP and DPP, but the output stack will contain 5 sides/sheets due to the Inserted sheet.

If this is a true statement, it appears impossible to control some attributes of the physical InsertSheet such as OutputBin, except via the DPP parent default level.

 

<LayoutPreparationParams Sides="OneSidedFront" PartIDKeys="RunIndex">      

   <LayoutPreparationParams RunIndex="0 ~ 3">        

      <InsertSheet SheetUsage="Header" SheetFormat="Blank" SheetType="InsertSheet">          

         <Layout>            

             <MediaRef rRef="M_Insert" />          

         </Layout>        

      </InsertSheet>      

   </LayoutPreparationParams>    

</LayoutPreparationParams>    

<DigitalPrintingParams PartIDKeys="RunIndex">      

   <DigitalPrintingParams Sides="OneSidedFront" RunIndex="0 ~ 3" OutputBin="Default" >         

      <MediaRef rRef="M_Job" />       

   </DigitalPrintingParams>    

</DigitalPrintingParams>

      RunIndex in Imposition applies only to the document RunList. Thus your observation is correct.

        If you want to do something with inserted sheets only (like: stapling them but not printer sheet), you need to use another kind of partition than RunIndex.
        For instance: use BundleItem.
        A common case where this occur, is when you separately print sheets with color content and then print the other on b&w with the color sheets are inserts. It there is subset finishing (so, partitioning of finishing), you fall into this problem.
