When a template file with tiles is created in the Editor, it can be used in the RIP. ( In QueueSetup -> Layout ).
If the template file contains a placeholder, this will be filled in with the contents of the file(s) dropped in the hotfolder.
The file will then be produced using the tiles from the template file.
There are some extra settings which can be done when the template file contains tiles ( basically the same settings as when the file with tiling was send directly to theRIP with “submit job” ).
To make these settings, the XML file containing the RIP preferences must be edited (usually located in the public folder on Windows and the preference folder in the user domain on MacOS X). The settings can be added to a queue tag (PrinterListItemQueueArray0 ) in this xml.
When the value of a keyword is a real, it’s value is expressed in 1 / 18th inch. ( so a value of 18 means 1″)
The tags containing the keywords must look like this:
Where KEYWORD is one of the possible keywords ( twice ) and TYPE and VALUE are the type and one of the possible values for the keyword.

|BleedSize||Real||> 0||The amount of bleed to add to each tile part expressed in units.|
