Job Properties Overview

The Job Properties window is the primary place to edit the settings for a print or cut job. There is a lot in Job properties and it may take some time and experimentation to truly master all the features it offers. Below you can find articles with an explanation for each tab and each setting within each tab.

For many of these options, if you wish to have these options set as a default setting that applies to all new jobs that generated in Production Manager, see: Using Default Job Properties
