Abstract

A recirculating document handling feature. When an operator approaches a copier with a stapled set of original documents to make copies, he/she first removes the staple from the original set, places the set in the document handler tray, programs the job and presses Print. At the end of the job the copy sheets are stapled but the original document stack is unstapled. The operator must now seek out a stapler to restaple the originals.
