TWO Very important CHANGES!

Change # 1 ALL USERS

If your document has BOTH COLOUR and BLACK & WHITE pages, YOU MUST separate the printing of colour pages from the black & white pages.

ALL pages printed to the \\ktx4\Colour_xx printer queues will be CHARGED at the COLOUR PAGE RATE even though the page only uses black ink. Remember print requests sent to the \\ktx4\Black&White_xx printer WILL print in black & white and will be charged at the Black & White rate.

This means you must print ALL colour pages and submit the print request to the \\ktx4\COLOUR_xx print queue. Your Black & white pages MUST be printed to the \\ktx4\Black&White_xx printer queue.

Change #2 for SAS USERS
