Hi there,

A question arose about the 'fold-letter' finishing type. For the purpose of this discussion, let us assume that 'fold-letter' is defined to use an "inward" fold for both of the folds, and so the Printer includes this in its "finishings-col-ready":

finishings-col-ready=
{
    finishing-template=fold-letter
    media-sheets-supported=1-3
    media-size-name=na_letter_8.5x11in
    folding=
    {
        folding-direction=inward
        folding-offset=8940
        folding-reference-edge=top
    }
    folding=
    {
        folding-direction=inward
        folding-offset=8940
        folding-reference-edge=top
    }
}

If the Printer supported both an "inward" and "outward" implementation of 'fold-letter', how would it appropriately represent this latter variant? Would the right thing to do be to add this as well?

{
    finishing-template=fold-letter-outward
    media-sheets-supported=1-3
    media-size-name=na_letter_8.5x11in
    folding=
    {
        folding-direction=outward
        folding-offset=8940
        folding-reference-edge=top
    }
    folding=
    {
        folding-direction=outward
        folding-offset=8940
        folding-reference-edge=top
    }
}

It seems like it should it have a discrete name. If the right thing to do is to register in our IANA registry 'fold-letter-outward' etc. let me know and I'll submit that.

Cheers,

Smith
