The website has some JDF (insert) samples for review but I am not sure how to make comments directly and so I have raised a query here. One of the examples called ForceFront/Back pages is pasted below.
Issue 1 - PartIDKeys specifies "Run" and therefore the child <RunList> should have @Run="name"
Issue 2 - why does the comment say "note, all pages print, not just the 3 Front"? This seems to be contrary to the answer from the question titled "RunList and @Pages" from Dec 02, 2015. My understanding is page 5, 10 and 27 only should print on the front with blank backs and no other pages.
<JDF Type="Combined" Types="[...] DigitalPrinting [...]" [...]>
    <ResourcePool>
        <RunList class="Parameter" ID="id" PartIdKeys="Run" Status="Available">
            <!-- Some pages must be forced to front side -->
            <RunList Pages="4 9 26">
                <InsertSheet IsWaste="false" SheetFormat="Blank" SheetType="FillSheet" SheetUsage="FillForceFront" />
            </RunList>
            [...]
        </RunList>
        [...]
    </ResourcePool>
    [...]
</JDF>

      Issue 1: Certainly Run is missing

      Issue 2: You are correct. The shorthand as specified violates the use of pages. The runlist should look like:

       <RunList class="Parameter" ID="id" PartIdKeys="Run" Status="Available">            <!-- Some pages must be forced to front side -->
                  <RunList Run="r1" Pages="0 ~ 3"/>
                  <RunList Run="r2" Pages="4">
                      <InsertSheet IsWaste="false" SheetFormat="Blank" SheetType="FillSheet" SheetUsage="FillForceFront" />
                  </RunList>
                  <RunList Run="r3" Pages="5 ~ 8"/>
                  <RunList Run="r4" Pages="9">
                      <InsertSheet IsWaste="false" SheetFormat="Blank" SheetType="FillSheet" SheetUsage="FillForceFront" />
                  </RunList>
                  <RunList Run="r5" Pages="10 ~ 25"/>
                  <RunList Run="r6" Pages="26">
                      <InsertSheet IsWaste="false" SheetFormat="Blank" SheetType="FillSheet" SheetUsage="FillForceFront" />
                  </RunList>
                  <RunList Run="r7" Pages="27 ~ -1"/>
                 [...]
              </RunList>
       

      The result are blank back pages after page (0-based) 9 and 26:

      FillForceFront places the respective page on a Front side. Thus it has no effect on Page 4, which is already on the front. Page 9 (back) is intentionally left blank and all contents are shifted by one page. Thus contents 9 are printed on page 10 (front) etc.

      Contents 26 would go to Page 27(back) which is again intentionally left blank and are therefore printed on page 28 (front)
