16  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Can't back out of Recall, browse folders on: January 25, 2017, 02:28:54 AM
Downloaded v116 with antivirus paused. Note that the antivirus I use is the one suggested by Mike (ESD) That's where I learned about it.

Still having the same problem.

Here are my steps:
Click on recall (folder with the green arrow)

Click on "select new folder" icon which is the one that looks like a folder  Roll Eyes

Now hit "ok" or "cancel" or X and I get the error
 
Resetting all qimage settings does not clear the error.  Even if I browse around my folder structures and select different directories I still get that error.

Just upgraded to 2017.115 but this maybe an issue with other versions.

Tried to recall a job and selected browse but now I can't cancel or click OK without and error.  Have to kill the application.

Steps to duplicate:

Click the recall folder icon top left of main menu  / Select new folder icon

I guess since I have Lghtroom I could just go to the soft-proof page and do the compare then set Qimage to the one I liked best in Lightroom. Or not :-D

Thanks, you both always take the time to respond with detailed answers. Much appreciated.

In a recent video on the Luminous Landscape, Jeff Schewe was showing how to softproof using lightroom. He could click between relative and perceptual while looking at the image in the softproof screen. It was clear to see that some images looked better using one or the other and some you couldn't notice a difference. I was simply asking if that was available in qimage without having to exit the softproof screen. Answer is it is not, but it does look like a useful feature. I have used qimage for years to print BTW so I am not trying to say that LR is better, just that this looks like a useful feature.

I understand that I can print two images and compare. But then why softproof at all? Why not always print two images and compare?
20  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Changing rendering intent on softproof page on: May 04, 2016, 11:53:10 PM
Is there a way to click between perceptual and relative rendering intent and see how each affects the soft-proofed image without going to the ICC profile and changing it there? Lightroom has this feature and it's a great way to quickly pick the rendering intent that works best for a specific image/paper combination.

Thanks.

Perfect, that was it. I knew I wasn't crazy.

You can use "Edit", "Preferences", "When Images are Dropped into Qimage Ultimate", and select "Add to Queue" if you want them added to the queue automatically.

Regards,
Mike
22  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Something Changed? Edit in QI from Lightrrom on: March 05, 2016, 04:03:54 PM
I don't recall this behavior in past versions of QI, but it could just me something I changed. Huh I have as long as I can remember selected the option in Lightroom to edit in OI when I am ready to print. So in Lightroom you right click on an image and select from several options. One option is to export to a folder and within this option was another sub-option to open QI after export. A second preferred option for me was to right click my image i Lightroom and select "edit in QI" which is something you can add to the right click menu in Lightroom.

What is happening now (and I believe for a number of past versions of QI) is when I select "edit in QI" the image is correctly sent to LR however instead of just the selected image showing up in QI, the whole folder that contained the image is loaded into QI. A folder can contain many high megabyte drum scan images that take a substantial about of time for QI to load. In addition, the image I want to print in QI is not highlighted in any way, so if I have several different edits of the same image I have to figure sort through them and make sure I am printing the correct image which is a waist of time.

Has something changed, or is there a QI preference setting I need to change?
23  Mike's Software / Qimage Ultimate / Re: Actual print size not matching expected output on: February 29, 2016, 04:01:07 PM
I always had the Epson preview turned off, never liked having to click on another button. Guess it's time to turn it on.  I've had this sort of thing pop up in the past and it seems to happen after playing around with autocrop, boarders and other related settings.

Thanks,

Ned

After changing to another paper of a different size with the same result I used a long forgotten command. Resetting all program settings cleared it up.  Wish I would have thought of that 4 sheets ago. Rather annoying that the preview window didn't show the error.

Sir,
The reason that Qimage didn't show the error was due to the error coming after Qimage sent the print to the driver.
The error was in the driver settings as shown by the resolution of 160 x 160.

I added a screen snap to show you that even inside the driver window, there is a sample showing what you described when you change the output size in the driver.

I've printed many, many images and can't understand what's going on here. I've just wasted four 17x22 sheets and I really don't like doing that.

Windows 10, EPSON 3880 Ultimate version 20161.40

My paper size is selected as 17x22
Custom print size with 17 entered as the long end
Hovering my mouse over the preview window shows a print of 16.98x11.32 @ 398ppi
Auto cropping is off
The image looks like it's centered in the preview window
I did the analyze settings command, no errors
The end result is an image with the approximate dimensions of 5x7.5 in the corner of my 17x22 sheet.
I've tried removing the image from the queue and re-selected custom print size with the same result.
Can't really test now since this was my last 4 sheets only one of which I needed for a Thursday show.  Angry
I love Qimage but man sometimes it does some wacky stuff.

Thanks Mike. I like to think I know what I'm doing, I work for the largest networking company in the world. I've spent hours on this and nothing I did would resolve it.  So this morning I start my compute and the stupid thing works.  Seriously? I'm sure it will crap out when I need it the most :-)

Moving my printer from USB to Ethernet. Using windows 10. I have my 3880 set manually for 192.168.1.111  I have reserved that IP address in my router (just in case) although it doesn't seem to matter. I can see and configure the printer by going to it's IP address or using the Epson network utility.

When I first install the Epson printer software it works over the network until I reboot. Then it shows off line in devices/control panel and the only way I can get it to work over the network is to reinstall the printer software. Even after the reboot I can ping the printers IP, I can see it using Epson's network utility (shows ready to print) and I can access the printer (and configure it) by going to it's IP address.

I have the printer set to use off-line which is set up by default and is suggested by Epson. I've deleted and added the TCI/IP port. Prints just sit in queue. Haven't called Epson yet...

I get the same error is there is something "wrong" with the image file name. Basically if it's too long...

Your rude comment was based on customers not responding to a fix in time frame that you feel is appropriate. Ever think people have other things to do than hover around the forum waiting for a fix to come out? When they don't, you call them complainers.

I have an android phone, and it pushes out bug fixes daily. According you your standards, If I don't respond by saying thank you to each and everyone of them within a day of the update that I am in inconsiderate s.o.b?

Don't need you to feel sorry for me, I'm doing just fine.

Fred,

I commented on this thread, so by association your comment was directed to me which I find rather rude. I say thank you by my continued payment of my subscription fee. Maybe give people some time to realize it's been fixed?

Even Windows Explorer has similar issues with selecting partially visible items and it has other issues as well like when you select/do something that takes a few seconds to complete, sometimes Windows Explorer thinks you still have the left mouse button pressed and when you scroll over the list it selects every item under the mouse as you scroll even though no buttons are pressed.  You have to click and release the left mouse button to get it to stop selecting.  I see that one all the time even on Windows 8!  I guess it's a glitch Microsoft never thought big enough to address but I'll see what I can do.  Wink

Mike

Thanks for the speedy fix Mike.
I personally know how many hours you spent to repair this somewhat trivial issue, especially making it work properly regardless of the font size or screen resolution of the user.
It amazes me though that people can spend 5 days complaining, and can't find 5 minutes to say thank you!

Thanks Mike, from those that appreciate!

Fred
