Hi guys,

I am an old member of these forums returning after 10+ years.
That it took me so long shows how good and troublefree Mike's software works  Smiley

After buying new computer gear and a new printer I also updated QImage and Profile Prism.
I am having a small problem with PP, I hope that you can help me out, or at least point me to something I am doing wrong or perhaps misunderstanding.
What I am wondering about is the "Scrolling through clipped patches" function in PP.

The manual reads:

To locate and scroll through the clipped patches on the target to view them, simply click on the "WARNING/Note: n patches are at minimum/maximum value..." message in the message box on the bottom of the window.

That seems not to work on my system.
The Prism target scan I made shows the message "Note: 3 patches marked with "X" are at minimum/maximum brightness" (I know, nothing to worry about, two are supposed to be there anyway so actually it is just one patch). When I click on that message nothing happens though.

FWIW: I am using Windows 10 Pro X64 version 1703 build 15063.250 AKA Creators Update.
Profile Prism version is 8.43


Am I the only one seeing this? Is it perhaps the Windows version I am using, a minor incompatibility between Creators Update and PP?

Thanks for any insights,


Herman.

Hi Herman,

I set about to repeat what you see.
First of all, if I got a report that three patches were X ... I would be happy as can be.  I have some paper types that defy profiling by scanner.
Now back to your question.
I only get the words WARNING/NOTE if there are a number of patches in the report.
With only three, it just says, NOTE: three patches .... blah blah..
I find there's nothing to click on to allow access to the patches... they are always visible for the scrolling.

Maybe it was clickable on previous old versions. Can't remember.'

Hi Fred,

Thank you for trying and for confirming my observation.
I know there is nothing to worry about when you have only three X patches (BTW: the number 3 is on the IT8 portion of the scan, the scan of the actual paper has a massive 2 X patches Smiley Smiley. I think the secret here is VueSCan, I had it combine 4 scans which resulted in these numbers).

Thanks again for your effort!

Herman.
