The concept here is to provide special (different) programming of the copying of selected documents selected by a control system for a recirculating document handler actuated automatically by special document slip sheets fed with, but ahead of, regular documents. These slip sheets are s ecially

to actuate the s ecial programming. These document slip sheets may be of ordinary paper, gut are notched at at least one location corresponding during feeding to at least one of the plural document jam or document width sensor locations spaced transversely of the document path of the RDH and/or SADH, to provide a special logic control si nal from said plural jam sensors

a1 can stop the RDH document recirculation at the sli sheet point

documents, or actuate a preset special copying mode of various kinds. This system does not require additional or special sensors, switches or other inputs. It uses existing machine hardware, with only slight added software, It does not have to recirculate all the documents for special programming slowly or one document sheet at at a time (e. g. the separate manual "star" button actuation for each document sheet as in Eastman Kodak copiers "star" button programming s stem). It does not require marked sheets as in Xerox 4,248,528 issue B February. 3, 1981 to R. B. Sahay. Additional background prior art in addition b the Eastman Kodak "300" copier exception slip sheet insert option introduced in June 198...
