Abstract

On a xerographic reproduction machine having a touch screen user interface, it is possible to illustrate an exception programming table similar to that shown in Figure 1. More specifically, in exception programming, the operator assigns special procedures or exceptions to occur at various stages during a copying job. Referring to Figure 1, which illustrates a portion of a user interface suitable for exception programming, a table represents the various exceptions which are to occur along the top of the table and the page number within the original document where the operation is to occur along the left side. The individual page numbers are entered through the user interface with numeric control panel buttons (not shown) and the desired exception(s) are selected by touching the appropriate buttons along the top of the table (12a,b,c). The exceptions which have been selected are acknowledged by a check mark, 14 in the column directly beneath the appropriate button and to the right of the specified page number.
