Thanks again Ernst.  I agree it is much easier just to keep what I'm doing and use the Qimage printing options rather than go through the  print to file route.

I'm happy with what I'm getting now and will keep the print flow I'm using now.

Thank you so much for your help.

Ernst,
I'm trying to print to file. After I save the specs to print to file it isn't giving me the option to where my print to file is. Where can I find this file?

Thanks for the direction.

I'm using the HPGL2 drivers if that makes any difference.

Mike,
Yes it does change the layout size after applying the white space. Only problem is it cuts off prints that are on the layout. For example I had a 36x27 layout with 6 8x10's. After applying it change the layout to 36x12 where it should have been around 36x17

I replied while you responded Mike. Let me go back and see if it changes.

Beep Beep Beep. backing up. LOL

I have a roll of 36x100 on the printer. The page size I used to experiment was 36x12 with an 8x10 print. I use Ultimate to print just fine with no problems. I just wanted to know how to cut the print after printing. For example. My layout size is 36x12. The 8x10 print will have 2 inches of white after the print and cut. If I print from the HP print utility it will print the 8x10 print and cut it 3/8 on  an inch after printing. I just wanted to do this in Ultimate.

I applied the remove white space and did a quick print but it didn't remove the white space. Any suggestions?

Thanks Fred,
Do I have to check this every time I print or is it a check it once and forget it?

Forgive me if this has been answered. My printer is an HP z6100. If I use the HP print utility the printer will cut the print about 3/8 of an inch (automatically) after the print. In Ultimate I have to set the layout to whatever I want to cutoff the print after. Is there somewhere to set Ultimate  to set this? I know the printer will do it just need to find where the setting is.

Thanks in advance. If you need any more info I will be following this thread.

Thanks for the quick reply Fred. What I just found out is in my print driver (HP Z6100) I had the % of actual size set to 101. I changed it to the default, actual size, and did a print preview and it showed the print layout correctly being landscape. I will assume it will print correctly on the next print. This was driving me crazy because it was printing just fine. I have to learn not to screw around with print settings. LOL

I've been printing with great results. Somehow I reset a setting that when Qimage is showing the layout in landscape it will print portrait. I'm wasting a lot of paper. It was working WYSIWYG but not now. What did I change?

Thanks for any quick replies. I have a lot of prints to get out and I hate wasting paper.

Is the interpolation changed if I use the profile from the printer and not Qimage? I have the HP Z6100 which makes it own icc profiles which are dead on for color.

You're righ Fred, there are a lot of ways I'm finding. I think what will work for me is in my print driver under print options then features I set the % of actual size to 101 and that will work for me. Like you said Fred, I'm looking for a print size like 8.01x10.1 or 5.1x7.1 for trimming. This works perfect. It wouldn't be so critical but we mount 5x7's and larger on precut mount board otherwise if it was a 1/16 smaller it wouldn't be a big deal.

Thanks for your help. Awesome forum.

Somewhere I read there is a setting to make prints a little larger for trimming. I just wasn't paying attention at the time but now I could use it. That's fine Fred but sometimes I have a dozen or so prints that I would like a little larger. Too time consuming to resize each one.

Lets say I print an 8x10 and I want to print it a little larger for trimming purposes. I know I can make the print 10.1x8.1 or whatever but how can I set Qimage Ultimate to automatically do it.

Thanks guys for the help.
