Abstract

In a shared users multifunction reproduction machine with print job and fax output of printed sheets to a stacking tray with offsetting means, in which a user may have a print job comprising plural print sets of plural printed sheets, the improvement wherein said offsetting means selectively offsets from one another individual said print sets for any one user by a first offset distance, and additionally offsets print jobs and fax output between different users by a different and greater (or lesser) second offset distance, so that the job sheet output in said stacking tray can be more readily distinguished and separated both by different users and by the different print sets of those different users. That is, visibly different offset stacking is provided for different users than the offsets between sets for the same user. As is known, job set offsetting can be offsets transverse the process direction, in the process direction, or partially pivoted relative to the process direction.
