Inserting Tab Stock

You can insert tab stock at chapter breaks. You can also print on tab stock.

Tab stock can be inserted at chapter breaks set using the “Create Chapter” function on the [Edit Page Order/Layout] screen. You can insert tab stock for each chapter, or you can specify for which chapters tab stock is inserted.
