Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9954247A1] A computer-controlled paper delivery system for a printer (10) having multiple physical output bins (15). The system allows the user to combine less than all of the physical output bins (15) into a single logical output bin by assigning the same alphanumeric name to the bins to be combined. This allows certain users of the printer to have larger output capacity. The physical output bins (15) of a logical bin are filled sequentially until each is full. The printer (10) may have more than one logical output bin and may contain certain physical output bins (15) that are not part of the logical output bin.
