Ah, ok, missed that - sorry! Will follow up today.

Thanks, Fred. Working in PS CS5 64 bit now, but not in plain PS CS5.

Updated Qimage Ultimate to version 2018.103, then installed QUAdobePlugin.v2017.109.exe.
QUAutomate.8li and QUExport.8be are now located in this folder: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64 Bit)\Plug-ins
However, the print from Photoshop via Qimage Ultimate option is not showing up under File>Automate.
Should I move the two plug-in files to a different location?
thanks.

Photoshop CS5
Windows 64 bit Professional
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3 GHz
4 GB RAM

Thanks for explaining this feature, Mike ;-)

Thanks, Mike, and my apologies for not crediting you previously! Obviously I wasn't paying attention :-o

I had previously selected "Roll paper (banner)" with Single Cut, so I tried turning off the printer's cutting option in the printer's console, but that generates an error message saying the paper size is wrong, can't be done with Borderless printing, to reload. I can try printing another with all the cutting settings off (i.e. in the printer's console and via the printer driver), but my goal is to not have to cut these prints manually. I'd like them to emerge in the correct dimensions, ready to wrap in sleeves or matte and frame (we're in a gallery production situation).

Thanks, Fred - you have solved it 99%! Single cut and Double cut seem to yield the same result; I'll stick with Single cut.

The one last idiosyncrasy is that the E4800 cuts off a 3 1/4" x 17" strip of paper *before* printing. The printer's console is set to the cut roll paper icon; I generally pull the roll paper through the feeder to the "Other" line on the paper tray surface, then reset the paper levers and the printer rewinds the paper to what has supposedly been the correct position (I followed the same procedure with the Epson 4000 for several years). Then I print.

If there's a way to avoid losing 3" of paper each time, that would be ideal. However, I'd rather live with some wastage and have prints emerge correctly than have an inch of paper added to each job, at last for the time being ;-)

Tried the "Remove white space at bottom of page" option with the job set as Roll paper (banner), and it still prints 17x14" as 17x15".
23  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Epson 4800 printing larger paper than set in QimageUltimate on: August 27, 2016, 06:08:00 PM
Installed newer driver and tried again, but I'm still getting additional paper at the top and bottom.
I can't find other cutting options other than "Normal cut" or "Off" (see attached). I will see if there's another way to access the cutting options you mentioned.
24  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Epson 4800 printing larger paper than set in QimageUltimate on: August 26, 2016, 10:13:39 PM
Yes, I've had the 6.50 driver version; downloading new one now.
25  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Epson 4800 printing larger paper than set in QimageUltimate on: August 26, 2016, 06:01:51 PM
Thanks, Fred - makes sense. Will do and report later...
26  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Epson 4800 printing larger paper than set in QimageUltimate on: August 24, 2016, 08:20:04 PM
Darn, I tried the "Remove white space at bottom of the page" option *and* set the printer to Roll Paper (banner) @ 17" x 14" and it printed 17" x 15.25" :-(
I can trim this manually, but this glitch in the driver or whatever option I've mistakenly set is slowing down production.
27  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Epson 4800 printing larger paper than set in QimageUltimate on: August 10, 2016, 05:38:14 PM
Thanks - v interesting. I never noticed the sheet cutter feature and haven't tried the Banner Mode (QU has so many features and I know I'm only scratching the surface!). Will see if it makes a difference.
28  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Epson 4800 printing larger paper than set in QimageUltimate on: August 09, 2016, 07:57:46 PM
Thanks, Fred. I should mention that my actual goal is to print on a 17x20 sheet; I set up this job @ 17x19 to compensate for the additional inch that's been creeping in ;-)

I would like to be able to set up custom roll paper sizes using the User Defined dialogue, save them, and print with confidence that the output will match the setup. Usually this has worked, but occasionally jobs print an extra inch. This is one of them.

I notice I haven't checked Optimize Enlargement or Reduce/Enlarge>Fit to Page, and I have set my User Defined page width @ 17.00 inches (not 17.01), then saved it with 17x19 as its name which appears in my driver options. Not sure if that's an issue.

Also, I had been avoiding checking Reduce/Enlarge>Fit to Page in case that might cause the image to resize from what I have set up in the Full Page Editor.

When I do check Reduce/Enlarge>Fit to Page for my 17x20 roll paper size (the size I actually want to print on), I now see "User Defined -> User Defined" showing up in the driver. Page size showing as 16.998x19.998 in upper right. Unfortunately, this still prints an additional inch, i.e. 21" instead of  20".

PS I am using version 2016.158 now.

and the initial QimageUltimate window with the job...
30  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Epson 4800 printing larger paper than set in QimageUltimate on: August 09, 2016, 05:50:57 PM
I've encountered another persistent and possibly related issue:
when I set up 17" wide roll paper to print a 19" long sheet, it prints it 20" long.
I can't figure out why it's adding one inch.
(note: the right margin is wider to allow for paper trimming and packaging.)
