Additionally, users have control over the position of the annotation on the page and can even select the font that best suits their needs. These formatting options provide a personalized touch to your documents.
  • User-Specific Annotations: The Printer Drivers go beyond standard annotations by allowing users to include user-specific information, such as the person's username, computer name, IP address, and more. By utilizing predefined fields and environment variables, managers can automatically incorporate relevant details into the annotations, making document tracking and identification effortless.
  • Enabling Annotations: Simply open the Black Ice Printer Manager > Select Printing Preferences... > Annotation-Header-Footer Tab > Check to Enable Annotations.

Header and Footer: The Printer Drivers also offer the option to add headers and footers to the printed documents. These features are invaluable for providing essential background information and maintaining a record of document flow. You can include user-specific details like the username, print date, and time in the header and footer, enhancing document management and organization.

  • Customization and Positioning: The Header and Footer configuration offers extensive customization options. Users can define the text, which can include ASCII characters and variable placeholders for printing information. Moreover, users have control over the position of the header and footer on the page, allowing users to align them as per your requirements. Font customization further enhances the visual appeal and readability of the added text.
  • Seamless Preview and Editing: The Virtual Printer Driver provides a preview of the header and footer configurations, allowing users to easily visualize the final layout before printing. This preview feature ensures that your annotations, headers, and footers are precisely positioned and formatted as intended, saving you time and resources.
  • Enabling the Header and Footer: Simply open the Black Ice Printer Manager > Select Printing Preferences... > Annotation-Header-Footer Tab > Check to Enable Header and Enable Footer.
