This has been done but is not easy.  It is possible to insert
postscript 'tray commands' in the document at certain points.
However, the commands to insert require detailed knowledge
of your specific printer and its postscript drivers.  It is
officially 'no longer supported' by Adobe and may require you to
print from an older copy of Acrobat Reader (4.0 works for us).
The best thing would be for you to email the precise printer
model and any driver details to us at support@reportlab.com,
and I will try to dig out what we did on the most recent similar

	I have another question about reportLabs processing. I need to be able 
encode certain pages to print from specific print trays. For example: A
section heading page would be encoded to print from papertray 1 and the
detailed pages from papertray 2. Can I do this with ReportLabs? If so, 
If not, how do I accomplish this? P.S. (example code is very much
appreciated and more useful than a statement like "use Win32all API"

Thanks Very much.

Hi Jody,

a Python/PIL-independant solution to your problem - yes, even
on Win32 as it seems, would be to use libtiff externally for
splitting such files. I'd asume libtiff is handling more TIFF
variants than PIL, which at least used to have some problems
with TIFF files generated on a Mac.
