INTRODUCTION
How to use this manual
The windows in this reference are meant to simulate the windows
that appear on your PC UI screen. Use this reference to find
information on the function of a particular window, or the type of
information that should be entered in a field.
To locate information on a particular window, look up the name of the
window (upper left corner of window) in either the table of contents of
the index.
Underneath each figure is a description of the window functions, as
well as the parameters that are displayed in the window, and any
notes or hints that relate to the task.
Conventions and symbols
The following conventions are used in this manual:
•
•
Icons for warnings, cautions, and so on.
The names of keys on the PC UI are depicted inside angle
brackets and capitalized, for example, the <ALT> key.
Figure headings
A numbered figure heading above each window shows the name of
the window and the pathway to get to that window.
Figure 1-2. Disks>Reallocate>Print File Data window
For example, in the figure heading above, the name of the displayed
window is the Print File Data window. If your PC UI was at the
desktop window, to get to the Print File Data window you would first
select the Disks icon, then select the Reallocate option, and finally
the Print File Data option. To return to the PC UI desktop, you would
close all open windows.
Defaults
If you do not specify an option or value, one may automatically be
selected by the PCUI software. This automatically-selected option is
the default. In this manual, where applicable, system defaults are
underlined.
For example:
Device: All Disks, DP0, DP1, DP2, DP3, TD0, TD1, TD2.
Select/enter the system disk or tape reference.
In this example, unless you specify another system disk or tape
device, the system will automatically default to the All Disks option.

XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC USER INTERFACE REFERENCE
INTRODUCTION
File ID and masking
The terms "file-id" or "file ID" refer to the form "file-name.file-type"
where "file-name" is a 1-6 character file name, and "file-type" is the
directory under which the file-name is cataloged.
When specifying the file-id, an asterisk (*) or question mark (?) can
be used as a wildcard or string lookup for the file-name. This is often
referred to as masking. Masking eliminates the need for you to
repetitively key in various file names that contain the same string of
characters.
When the file-name ends with an asterisk, all file-names beginning
with the same characters that precede the asterisk are displayed. For
example:
FILE ABC*.FNT
The example above specifies that all file-names beginning with ABC
of the file-type FNT be displayed.
When a file-name contains a question mark, only the specified
characters of file-type FNT and the position(s) occupied by the
questions mark(s) affect the file-names to be displayed. For example:
FILE AB??.FNT
The above example specifies that all file-names beginning with AB
that are 2, 3, or 4 characters long of file-type FNT be displayed.

1Using the PC UI
This chapter explains the PC UI in detail. If your LPS has the system
controller keyboard/display rather than the PC UI, refer to the
DocuPrint 180 Operator Guide, appendix C, “Using the system
controller keyboard/display.”
PC UI
With the PC UI you perform operator tasks through a dynamic set of
windows. Either a mouse or certain keyboard combinations are used
to move between windows and select options. The PC UI also allows
you to enter commands through a window on the display screen.

Components of the PC UI
The following sections explain the components of the PC UI in detail.
PC UI keyboard
The PC UI keyboard allows you to enter text and perform tasks.
Figure 1-6.
PC UI keyboard
The PC UI keyboard contains the following:
1-4
•
Character keys. These keys are used to enter text in the
Command Line/Message window or input fields of windows.
•
The front face of certain character keys have multinational
characters on them. These are language-specific characters
(such as £) or mathematic symbols (such as + or 3/4). To
generate a multinational character, press and hold the <ALT>
key while pressing the desired character key. For example,
<ALT> + <P>=1/4.
•
Arrow keys. These keys are used in place of the mouse to
move the cursor around the desktop.
•
Function keys. These keys perform functions as follows
—
F1. Stop printing
—
F2. Continue printing
—
F3. Sample
—
F4. Clear Faults
—

Special function keys
Certain keys have special functions that mimic the mouse operation.
You can use these keys if your mouse is not working. Also, certain
key combinations allow you to move around the keyboard more
easily in the absence of a mouse. Both types of keys are listed
below:
<ENTER>. Pressing this key has the same result as clicking the left
mouse button once. Holding the <ENTER> key down has the same
result as holding the left mouse button down. Pressing the
<ENTER> key when an input field is active (such as, when an input
field contains the blinking data entry cursor) has the same result as
selecting the header button containing the enter symbol.
<CTRL> + <ENTER>. Pressing these keys has the same result as
pressing the right mouse button once. Holding <CTRL> and
<ENTER> down has the same result as holding down the right
mouse button. When the data entry cursor is displayed in an input
field, pressing <CTRL> + <ENTER> has the same result as pressing
<ENTER>.
<CTRL> + <SPACEBAR>. Pressing these keys has the same result
as chording the mouse, that is holding down both the left and right
buttons of the mouse. (Chording the mouse results in the I/O menu
being displayed. Refer to chapter 7, “Job Control windows,” for
information on the I/O menu.) <CTRL> + <SPACEBAR> does not
function when the data entry cursor is displayed in an input field. If
necessary, press the <ESCAPE> key to remove the data entry
cursor from the window.
<CTRL>+<X>. This key combination cancels operations, such as
file listings.
<ESCAPE>. Pressing this key cancels entry into an input field by
removing the data entry cursor from the window.
<TAB>. This key selects the next input field
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE

USING THE PC UI
Cursor
The cursor is the entry point for information or activity on the PC UI
screen.
Types of cursors
Main cursor
Appears when you can select items on the desktop.
Wait cursor
Appears when a system activity is being processed (for example,
when a window is being opened) and during system initialization.
Data Entry caret
Appears when you can enter information in a field (an input field).
Moving the cursor
You can move the cursor in either of two ways:
•
•
Mouse
Arrow keys.
Moving the cursor using the mouse
To move the cursor using the mouse, lightly move the mouse over
the mouse pad. You may lift the mouse and put it down again
(gently) in a different position on the mouse pad if you “run out of
room” on the pad while you are moving it. (Lifting the mouse and
setting it down does not cause the cursor to move.) Be sure that the
mouse is touching the mouse pad.
Moving the cursor using the arrow keys
To move the cursor using the arrow keys, make sure that the <NUM
LOCK> key is not activated. Then press the arrow key pointing in the
direction you want the cursor to move. You may hold the arrow key
down; however, the cursor moves very quickly when you do this.
To select an input field with the arrow keys:
1. Press <ESCAPE> to remove the data entry cursor from the
screen.
2. Use the arrow keys to move the main cursor to the desired input
field.
3. Press <ENTER> to activate the input field. The data entry
cursor appears in the input field.
4. Use the arrow keys to move the data entry cursor within the
input field.

XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE
USING THE PC UI
PC UI mouse
The PC UI mouse controls the movement of the cursor. Use the
mouse to position the cursor in order to select icons or options on the
desktop.
Figure 1-7.
PC UI mouse
The PC UI mouse has two buttons.
•
Left mouse button. This button is used to select the options
displayed on the desktop.
•
Right mouse button. This button is used during specialized
activities (for example, resizing a window).
The mouse plugs into the back of the PC UI. You can place the
mouse on either the right or left side of the keyboard by changing the
direction of the mouse cable behind the PC UI.
Selecting options with the mouse
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE
Position the cursor on top of the icon option or option you want to
select by sliding the mouse over the mouse pad. Then click once
with the left mouse button to select the option.
1-7
USING THE PC UI
PC UI desktop
The PC UI desktop is the basic display screen.
Figure 1-8.
PC UI desktop
1. Status area. This area contains the date and time fields, the
Hint and Fault icons, and the Menu icons. Opening the Menu
icons allows you to access task windows.
Note: The icons you see depend on the level to which you are
signed on. Certain tasks are restricted to certain log-on levels.
You need a special password to access those tasks.
When changing log levels, the desktop is cleared of any open
windows, except for the Command Line/Message window. The
desktop is then reset according to the specified log level.
2. Command Line/Message window. This window displays
system messages and allows you to enter commands for
performing LPS tasks. You can scroll through the messages in
this window (refer to the “Using the scrollbars” section later in
this chapter), and the window can be resized or moved (refer to
the “Resizing the windows” and “Moving the windows” sections
later in this chapter for instructions). This window cannot be
closed. The Command Line/Message window contains the
following header buttons:
•
Clear faults. Select this button to clear printer software
faults (when directed by a message in the Command Line/
Message window or on the printer control console).
Selecting this button also causes any outstanding printer
faults to be displayed in the window.
Note: Entering CLEAR has the same effect as selecting
the Clear Faults button or touching the Clear button on the
printer control console.
1-8
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE
USING THE PC UI
•
Display Faults. Select this button to display a list of all
outstanding printer faults.
Note: Entering FHI has the same effect as selecting the
Display Faults button.
•
Continue. Select this button to resume input processing
and printing.
•
Close All Windows. This button is located in the auxiliary
menu. Select this button to close all open windows on the
desktop, except for the Command Line/Message window.
The Close All Windows button is a quick way of clearing the
desktop.
•
Auto Scroll. This button is located in the auxiliary menu.
Select this button to turn vertical auto scrolling on and off for
the message window.
3. Work Area. Windows and opened menus display in this area.
Windows open in a specific place on the desktop and are a
specified size. You can leave windows open, move them
around, resize them, and generally arrange the work area to
suit your needs. During a session, windows maintain their lastused size and location. However, after the PC UI is powered
off, rebooted, or you select the Exit to DOS task, the windows
return to their default size and location.
4. System status and source information is displayed at the
bottom of the desktop window.
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE

Windows
When you open one of the Menu icons, a Menu window is displayed.
A Menu window is a list of options. Selecting one of the options may
open another window (referred to as a “Task window”). Figure 1-9
displays the basic components of PC UI windows.
Figure 1-9.
Windows
Window header containing:
Window label.
Header buttons
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE
This is the name of the window.
These are buttons which perform specific functions. The Header
buttons you see vary based on the window. The basic Header
buttons are as follows:
•
Apply/Close. This button implements the selection you made
in the window and closes the window.
•
Apply. This button implements the selection you made in the
window. The window remains open.
•
Close. This button closes the window without implementing
any selections.
•
Redisplay. This button resets any default values or information
to what they were when you opened the window or the last time
any changes were applied.
•
Yes. This button confirms the question asked in the window
and closes the window.
1-13
USING THE PC UI
•
No. This button does not confirm the question asked and
closes the window.
In addition, a window may have a Header button (or more than
one) whose actions are directly related to the window’s function.
If you select a header button or menu option that is followed by
an ellipsis (...), another window opens which requires your input
in order to perform the task. Selecting a header button or menu
option that does not have an ellipsis performs the selected task
without further input.
A header button containing the enter symbol can be activated
by selecting the header button with the mouse or by pressing
the <ENTER> key when an input field contains the data entry
cursor.
Auxiliary menu
Move/Resize targets
This icon contains other options not shown in the window header due
to lack of space. If there are no other options to show, the auxiliary
menu icon is not displayed. To open the auxiliary menu, position the
main cursor arrow over the icon and select it with the left mouse
button. Then select the option you want. To close the auxiliary
menu, click on the icon, again.
These targets allow you to resize or reposition the window.
Scroll bars containing:
Scrolling targets
Index bar
These targets allow you to move the contents of a window up or
down, left or right.
The index bar allows you to scroll through the window more quickly
than using the scrolling targets. Click on the gray portion of the index
bar to move the window information to the right or left, or up or down.
(If the index bar is all white, all the window information is already

Additional types of windows
In addition to Menu windows and Task windows, there are windows
that appear on the desktop as a result of things you have done or
conditions in the LPS.
Confirmation window
This window opens as a result of something you have done in a Menu
or Task window. It has two targets: Yes and No.
The confirmation window has a yellow header bar if one of the
following applies:
—
Data may be lost as a result of the proposed action.
—
A cycle down of the printer may occur as a result of the
proposed action.
A green header bar means that you must respond to the confirmation
window before any other actions can take place in the PC UI.

Performing operator tasks through the PC UI
The PC UI gives you two options for performing operator tasks:
•
•
Selecting tasks through windows
Entering commands through the Command Line/Message
window.
Performing tasks through windows
Follow the procedures outlined earlier in this chapter to open Menu
and Task windows and select options using the PC UI windows.
Entering commands through the Command Line/Message window
Use the Command Line/Message window if you want to perform a
task by entering commands rather than selecting options in a
window. Place the cursor in the Command Line/Message window
(refer to figure 1-8) and click once with the left mouse button or press
the <ESCAPE> key, then the <ENTER> key to activate the window.
Then enter the command at the cursor.
Key-in conventions
Follow these conventions when entering commands:
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE
•
The system is ready to receive commands when OS1000
READY FOR COMMANDS appears in the command line/
message window.
•
All commands may be abbreviated to the first three characters
or spelled out fully and correctly.
•
Commands are executed by pressing <ENTER>, except for
those entered by the function keys.
•
Spaces or commas may be used to separate command
parameters.
1-23
USING THE PC UI
•
Error and information messages from the system are preceded
by OS and a four-digit code indicating the severity level. Refer
to the DocuPrint 180 LPS Message Guide for information on a
particular error message.
•
A message acknowledging your request appears as positive
feedback to you. An error message OS2710 INVALID
COMMAND, PLEASE RE-ENTER appears when a command is
entered incorrectly.
Guide command conventions
When command instructions are given in this guide, the following
conventions apply:
•
Capital letters represent command keywords, the required part
of the command.
•
Lowercase letters, appearing in italics, represent data that
changes each time you use the command. For example, the
number of copies and the name of a form can vary for each job.
•
Characters enclosed in square brackets [ ] are optional. You
key them in only when you need them. For example, when you
see [copies] in a command and you do not key in a specific
number, the system automatically prints one copy.
TEM mode
In certain instances (for example, when performing the System
Control>Problem task), the PC UI display mimics a system controller
display for the duration of the command. This system controller
display mode is referred to as TEM (terminal emulation mode). Once
the task is finished, the desktop again appears on the screen.
Commands performed in TEM mode are identified in menu windows
by ’(TEM)’ following the command name. For example, when you
select the “Problem (TEM). . . ” option from the System Control
menu window, the PC UI is automatically put in TEM mode so that
you can perform the Problem task.
After finishing a task in TEM mode, you must wait for object mode to
display before beginning another task in TEM mode. Failure to do so
will result in a system crash.
Screen saver
To prevent monitor burnout on the PC UI, a screen saver feature
automatically blanks the screen and flashes a “Xerox” logo when the
PC UI desktop is inactive for five minutes. The five minute time limit
is a default which can be changed by your service representative.
To return to the normal desktop once the PC UI is in screen saver
mode, simply move the mouse, click a mouse button, or press any
key. The screen saver feature does not work when the PC UI is in
TEM mode.

Guidelines for PC Editor
You must be careful when managing controller files on the PC UI.
The controller file structure is record-oriented and information about
the file’s structure is maintained within the controller operating
system. The controller file naming convention signifies the type and
structure of the file to the System UI Software. In order to access
these files on the PC UI and to correctly transfer the file back to the
controller with the correct file type and record size, it is necessary for
the user to be aware of certain operational procedures. Please note
that these guidelines do not apply to files residing only on the PC or
intended for non-controller processing.
•
Do not mix the types of editors being used.
The LPS line editor (provided by the controller EDI task)
performs the edit of the file on the controller disk. The PC
Editor performs the edit of the file on the PC hard disk or PC
floppy.
If a file is retrieved from the controller and then edited using the
LPS line editor, any changes are made to the file residing on
the controller disk, not to the retrieved file on the PC disk.
•
Use the PC Editor options to edit an controller file.
In order to maintain controller file type integrity, you are
cautioned against using the file transfer or file copy/convert
feature and then selecting the PC Editor utility to edit an
controller file. The recommended procedure is to use the PC
Editor window options specifying the controller as the source
device and then selecting the open/edit target. The PC Editor
will automatically initiate the transfer of a file from the controller
transfer. When the changes to the file have been made, using
the editor to SAVE the file will initiate the transfer of the file from
the PC to the controller in the correct format.
•
Use the PC file management features for files on the PC floppy.
To copy or save files from the PC hard disk to the PC floppy,
the file management features provided within the PC UI are to
be used. If DOS commands or other non-PC UI utilities are
used, the information needed to maintain file type integrity for
PC UI processing will not be copied to the floppy. This can
result in files that are not correctly formaed or useable by the
PC UI for subsequent processing.
•
Adhere to controller file extension naming conventions.
When creating new controller files or copying/saving existing
controller files on the PC UI, you are cautioned to maintain the
controller file extensions and change only the file name.
Incorrect and unexpected results can occur if you change the
file extension or copies a file to one with a different file
extension. The resulting file transferred back to the controller
may no longer have the correct file structure or record type.
When using the file conversion feature, the file extension must
be changed to reflect the new file type.
Predefined file types are used by the PC UI for controller files
with the following extensions: CMD, DAT, FSL, ISL, LIB, JSL,
MSC, PCH, TMP.
•
Follow the file naming rules of the DP 180 LPS component.
Controller file names may consist of no more than six
characters.
5-10
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE
UTILITIES WINDOW
PC files names may consist of one to eight (8) ASCII characters
with exception of the following: period (.), colon (:), dash (-),

multi-national characters. The following are MS_DOS reserved

Figure 7-2.
Job Control>Abort window
Use the Abort window to do any of the following:
•
•
•
Remove a specific job or report from the system
•
Cause the currently active non-print task (such as FDL or PDL)
to abort (there must be no active print jobs when this command
is entered).
Remove all job/report information currently being processed
Cause the current print job to stop printing (printing continues
with the next report)
After applying your selection, a message appears asking you to
confirm the abort command.
Parameters
Output: Select the Output button to cause the current job to stop
printing.
Input: Select the Input button to remove only the print job currently
being input into the system. The next job begins processing.
Job Number: Enter the job number of a specific print job you want
to remove from the system.
Non-Print Task: Select this button to abort a non-print task, such as
FDL or PDL.
Note: This feature is available only when there is a print or nonprint task active.
When aborting input:
Input processing stops, but output processing continues.
Any data already processed by the input processor, but not yet
received by the output processor is deleted.
If an aborted job had already begun printing, the output is
appended with an accounting sheet which indicates that the job
was aborted and that the printed job is incomplete.

XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS PC UI REFERENCE
JOB CONTROL WINDOWS
When input processing is resumed, by the next START
command if an Abort Job Number is specified, incomplete input
data is ignored and is not printed. Processing begins with the
next complete report.
When aborting output:
Output processing ceases, but input processing continues.
All data within the output processor is deleted. All sheets
currently being printed are sent to the specified output bin and
are appended with an accounting sheet indicating that the job
was aborted and that the printed job is incomplete.
When output processing resumes, any input data associated
with an aborted job is ignored by the output processor and is not
printed. Printing begins with the next report. When aborting a
specific job:
If the job has not yet reached the output processor, the data is
deleted from the input processor and no interruption of output
processing occurs.
If the aborted job has completed input processing and is queued
or being processed by output, the data is deleted from the
system and no interruption of input occurs. Any output for the
aborted job cycles to its specified output bin and is appended
with an accounting sheet indicating that the job was aborted and
that the printed job is incomplete.
If the data is being processed by both input and output,
processing must cease. The data is deleted from both
processors. Processing resumes if a START command has
been entered. If a START command has not been entered, one
must be for printing to resume. A message is displayed
confirming that the job was aborted, and an accounting sheet is
sent to the output bin.
If a tape aborts, the tape is not rewound. In order to assure the
position of the tape, rewinding the tape is recommended prior to
sending the next START command. Note that a label error may
occur if the tape is not at the expected position when starting the
next job.
When an offline job is aborted by Input (due to an error condition)
and output has begun printing the job, input will stop processing,
but output will print whatever has been formatted up to the point
of aborting.
When aborting a non-print task, the system discontinues the
currently active non-print task, if that task accepts the Abort
command.
