1  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: maximize window doesn't cover the entire monitor on: January 27, 2016, 03:48:30 PM
Well I drag the QImage window from the smaller(main with windows button) monitor to the bigger monitor. Then I click on the rectangle icon in the upper right corner of the QImage window. But instead of filling the entire monitor it only fills it full vertical and leaves a part of my desktop visible on the right side. The QImage window still has a 4:3 aspect ratio like my main monitor.

When I don't try to maximize but drag the right side of the QImage window to stretch it manually, it doesn't accept it. At first it's resizing with my mouse, but when I let go the mouse button the QImage window jumps back and starts redrawing all the content inside it's window.

Yes I have an extended desktop. For most of my software I can use the second one to spread out all the extra palettes. It's a pity Qimage doesn't support a second monitor.

I've got two monitors attached to my computer running Windows 10.
One monitor is 1920 x 1200 pixels. The other one is 1600 x 1200.
When I put QI on the smaller monitor and hit the maximize icon in the top right corner it fills the entire monitor.
But when I do the same on the bigger monitor it seems to maximize to 1600 pixels instead of 1920.

Thank you all,

I think we can close the discussion. I'm not looking for workarounds. As I wrote before I've got a working one.
As I wrote in the first post. I thought I remembered a remark written by Mike somewhere that in one of the updates cropmarks were placed at the edges of the template boxes rather then around the image when using the "Layout: predefined page set" option.
But I guess I'm completely wrong.

I do agree that there's no need to turn Qimage into a dtp package. There's good software for that already.
But IMHO my question is more related to printing than to publishing.

Maybe most Qimage users work with sheets and not wide format printers that work with rolls of paper.
There are enough tools to put images on page that is a single sheet of paper. But on a roll printer the "page" is hardly ever the final sheet. Most of the time you put many "pages" on a large roll of paper. Several times I had to print an entire exhibition of maybe 20 images that had all different sizes, but were mounted in glass frames of the same size.

So maybe Mike would like to consider a special version beside the normal and pro version of Qimage. One that has some special tools to ease the workflow on a wide format printer.
I would have no problem paying for this kind of update. I've been paying an extra bit of money only once in five years, when I upgraded to the pro version. In the past I've seen that Mike is always listening to the users of Qimage to improve it. Smiley

So no solution for this yet I guess  Sad

I'm running a print service. I'm looking for a fast solution.
Manually placing images on top of each other is too time consuming.
Fastest I could come up with is what I described.
Adding filters and then print to file.

Hi Fred,

Ernst is giving the right idea. Described in an easier way.  Wink
With only a little difference:
All the frames must have the same size (with edges/crop marks).
Inside the frames I want to place images with different sizes, no cropping.

Before I used to add a border in Photoshop. But lately I had some problems with that solution.
I added a colour correction filter in Qimage. But then the borders were not white anymore  Angry
In the mean time I put the images (without border) centered on a small page and printed them to a file.
Next I could put all these images on a roll paper, with edges/crop marks at the right place.

This is my top wish for 5 years now.

Something I remembered to have seen in the release notes one time. But I can't find it anymore.
This is my situation:

I've got many images that have to be printed on the centre of a small "page".
The white space around the image is not the same all around, so I can't use the border option.
I would like to put all these "pages" on one large roll of paper.
Of course I need edges at the size of the "pages" to cut them.

This is what I think I remember how to get edges or crop marks at the right place:
Create a page with template boxes at the size of the "pages".
Save this as a layout.
Place the images with the "Layout: predefined page set" option.

In this case the edges or crop marks should appear around the templates but they don't
They still mark the edges of the image.

What am I doing wrong? Or am I completely wrong and is this not possible anyway.
8  Technical Discussions / Computer Hardware / Do I need a 64 bit system? on: September 09, 2009, 01:55:38 PM

I had to make a print on my epson 9600 printer with a length of 13 meters. Spooling seemed to go ok, and the printer started printing. But after 6 meters some white squares appeared in the print and half a meter later it stopped printing entirely.

Could this be a spool file size problem maybe? Would I need a 64 bit system to be able to create larger spool files?

Thanks for any help.
