Abstract

This article relates to a copier machine with a document-feeding device, the capability of copying on both sides of copy paper (duplex function), and the capability of interrupting job one in process to run job two. When job one is using the duplex function, certain copies may be present in the copier with only a side one printed thereon at the time of interruption. This article provides a special capability to the machine for enabling the operator to choose whether to allow the interrupt immediately and proceed to job two, precluding use of the duplex function to job two, or to delay the interrupt and continue job one until side one copies have received a side two and have been removed from the machine.
