For KIP print tracking, we recommend using Argos KIP integration for best results. In the event that this is not available, some device configuration may be required to track as expected.
KIPScript VS KIPGL
KIP drivers include support for two proprietary print languages - KIPScript (similar to standard PostScript) and KIPGL (similar to HPGL). Argos supports KIPScript, but not KIPGL. If your pages report as 8.5x11 when printing from your KIP, and Argos KIP integration is not an option, you may need to change to KIPScript to track correctly.
Changing the KIP Output Format
To switch from KIPGL to KIPScript, follow these steps:
- Open the KIP driver settings on your print server
- Click "Print Preferences"
- Select "Printer Options"
- Click "KIPScript" radio button
- Click "OK"
