Abstract

In order to prepare a recording media for later use in conjunction with unattended printer playout, the necessary revisions are made during a revision pass of the text stored in a buffer during which hyphenation and page-end decisions are also made and stored. After the revisions and hyphenation and page-end decisions are made, the contents of the buffer are transferred to a recording media.

Preparing Media for Unattended Printing

In order to prepare a recording media for later use in conjunction with unattended printer playout, the necessary revisions are made during a revision pass of the text stored in a buffer during which hyphenation and page-end decisions are also made and stored. After the revisions and hyphenation and page-end decisions are made, the contents of the buffer are transferred to a recording media.

In preparing for a revision pass of the stored material, an operator will make panel entries establishing an estimated page end based on lines, a measure, and a zone, the overlap of which with a word will require a hyphenation decision. For example, upon an entry of 30 for 30 lines, a sufficient amount of text to fill thirty lines based on the measure entry is accumulated and adjusted. Thereafter, only the words overlapping the zone and requiring hyphenation decisions are printed out. The operator decisions are then made and the text readjusted, and based on this readjustment the 30th line is printed out. The 29th through the 31st lines could also be printed out, providing an operator with more flexibility as to where the exact page end is to occur.
