Changing values in Snapshots

You can change the printer and forms settings values and save the new values to a Snapshot. When you change the settings for the Snapshot that is currently loaded, the word "(Modified)" appears next to the name of the Snapshot in the Snapshot Loaded field and on the Main panel.

You can save your changes using a new Snapshot name so that the original Snapshot can still be used. Alternatively, you can save your changes into the currently loaded Snapshot, so that your changes overwrite the original settings.

Remember that the InfoPrint default Snapshots may be modified and used with the current print job, but if you want to keep those changes, you must save them to a new Snapshot.

Users with Administrative access authority can view and change values in multiple Snapshots. Refer to the Planning and Configuration Guide for more information.


Do this procedure to make changes to the currently loaded Snapshot and then save those changes.

  1. Select the Snapshots panel (Frequent Tasks -> Snapshots) on the touch panel.
  2. Before saving any changes to a Snapshot, make sure that all the printer and forms values are set correctly.
    1. Select the Snapshot you want to change from the list of Saved Snapshots.
    2. Select Load to load the settings for the selected Snapshot. The selected Snapshot is now the currently loaded Snapshot and its name is displayed in the Snapshot Loaded field.
    3. Review the Snapshot settings in the right pane.
    4. Select Show Details... to display all settings in a separate window. Select OK to close that window.
    5. If you want to change any of the settings, navigate to the appropriate touch panel where the value is set, make the change, and select OK to save those changes. Any changes you make will be applied to the Snapshot that is currently loaded when you save the Snapshot.
      Refer to table of snapshot values (Table 9) for a list of values that are saved in Snapshots and where those values are defined on the console touch panels.
  3. Navigate back to the Snapshots panel (Frequent Tasks -> Snapshots).
  4. Before saving the changed Snapshot, select Show Details... to display the settings for the printer and forms values in the right pane. Verify that the changes are shown.
  5. Select Save current settings as.... You will be prompted to enter a name for the Snapshot you are saving. If this is a new Snapshot, the name field will be blank and you can type in the new Snapshot name. If this is not a new Snapshot, the name field will be filled in with the name of the loaded Snapshot. You can save it with that name or specify a new name. If you save it with the same name, your changes will overwrite the original Snapshot with that name.
  6. Select OK.
  7. Select Close to return to the Main panel.
