  • Using the Ctrl+Shift+O keyboard shortcut.


First, ensure that the output container/print job that you wish to configure is selected, in the Output Containers region, or Hard Copy region of the main job configuration window, respectively.

After launching the command, the applicable settings dialog will appear. Use the dialog to manage and configure the properties of the selected output container/print job, which will be applied when generating output from its linked output generators.
