Title: 30 printers same directory
Post by bman1985 on Sep 4th, 2015 at 9:10pm
Hi
We want to print pdf files from the same monitored directory on 30 different printers depending on the file name. I tried setting up multiple jobs with Print Pdf to Foxit Reader using file naming filters. However monitoring the same directory with multiple jobs caused some files not to be printed at all.

Is there a solution for this, or we have to use the sort files, and then have 1 printer job monitoring each separate printer folder ?

Thanks

Hi,

In the next few days there will be a new beta version of WD which includes a new "print pdf" task. This new task doesn't need external programs (foxit or adobe) and should work more reliable.

You can then use the "run multiple subtasks" task and add 30 subtasks.
