In the example the user has the option of the front and back pages of the document to be produced on a different media. The cover pages can also be laminated if required.
Points to remember:
|•||The Body document part should always contain the document options Media, Printed Sides, Printer Type and Production. The wording can be changed for the end user e.g media shown as Paper.|
|•||The option Media should always be at the top of the list.|
|•||The option Production is usually hidden as the user is not required to select the type of printer to be used.|
