Subject: Publishing a sheet list to the printer named in page setup

Publishing a sheet list prints all referenced sheets at the same time. The sheets are printed to the printer named in the assigned page setup for each sheet. If the Page Setup column indicates None for a sheet, the sheet is published using the print options specified for the layout.
