Abstract

It is known to provide individualized copying programming (special copying features selections) for individual documents being recirculated as part of a set of documents in a recirculating document handler (U.S. Patent No. 4,248,528 to R. Sahay). As noted in that patent, the recirculating document handler may be of the well known "racetrack" type in which the documents are loaded and restacked "face-up" in the document stacking tray in the RDH. Therefore, the faces of the documents are visible to the operator as the documents circulate. In such a device, the automatic special copying selections disclosed in said 4,248,528 patent may he made automatically, or manually by switch selections, for particular documents as taught there and also as discussed there with regard to the prior art.

In such a device, the automatic special copying selections disclosed in said 4,248,528 patent may he made automatically, or manually by switch selections, for particular documents as taught there and also as discussed there with regard to the prior art.

Here, for a higher document recirculating speed RDH, the stopping of the RDH to change the programming for a particular document is assisted by a lower than normal document recirculation (document exchange rate). This provides additional time for the operator to stop the document recirculation for special programming of a document when that document is restacked in the RDH restacking tray and before the next document is placed therein. This low speed initial recirculation is provided in response to a switch selection by the operator. Once all...
