How can I release a job in "wait" status?

Jobs can be in a wait status if the queue is suspended. If this is the case, simply unsuspend the queue. If the queue immediately goes back into a wait status, check the Log window for any new warning messages for the cause. Typically, there is a problem with the printer.

Another reason for jobs being in a wait status is if another job is printing in another queue. RPM is a single threaded application, so one job must finish before others can be printed. If you are using a filter queue and jobs are not completing properly, open the Execute tab in the Queue Setup and deselect run one filter program at a time.

Note: RPM 5.0 and newer do not have the "single threaded" bottleneck but jobs may still error, so checking the log is still the good option.
