Thanks for the reply.

Looks like " guide borders " will work great.

Thanks Fred ... but it is confusing for me. Seems it will not show the whole layout on screen ( similar to image below from another software I looked at )

.... or maybe I'm not doing it correctly.

Thanks a bunch Fred ... will check it out.

My printer can print 12" x 18".

I want to print an image ... say of 24" x 48".

Is there a way to do this in QI ....  QI makes the layout and prints different sections,
then I paste together ?

Getting ready to upgrade from v2018.107 to v2019.124.

I have some custom print sizes ... will I lose them with new upgrade ?

.... or is there a way to save the custom file ?

Suffice it to say, if you really want to get the most (prints) for your ink, just batch print when convenient.

Mike

That's what I'm going to try next and see how it goes.

Thanks for all the explaining.

Sorry dannac, I just realised you probably wanted an answer to your post.
I don't think the powering on and off makes a lot of difference to the ink used.  Without looking at the power consumption specs, I doubt the printer uses that much power in standby.
If I were you I would probably spread the printing out so that the printer does not go longer than say 2 weeks without a purge.  In fact I would probably build up to that by starting at 8 or 10 days and send a nozzle check or purge sheet to initiate the purge and confirm no clogged nozzles.


Thanks for the reply Bruce.

I will try something similar.

BruceW77 & admin

Thanks for all the info and effort you both put into this.

I was following the print every couple of days theory.
Following that theory, I get approx 15 prints for the month.

So if I'm understanding all the info in this thread :

it would be better to print all 15 images on one day and have printer powered on once,
than to print one every couple days and have the printer on and off multiple times ?

So all this begs the question, what to do?  It sounds like if you print regularly, say every day or two, you're going to get a cleaning cycle every 5 days.  So I think my preference might be to print a purge sheet every 4 days.  That way if you print nothing (aside from the purge sheets), you'll get a purge sheet every 4 days and a smaller 120 hour cleaning cycle every 8 days.  I think it's good to keep the ink flowing so not leaving it idle for more than 4 days sounds like a good thing.  And getting a small cleaning cycle every 8 days (assuming you don't print anything else in the middle) might be good as well since the cleaning cycle timer can't do its job unless something is printed.  Printing a purge sheet every 4 days should help to keep ink flowing so you get perfect prints every time and the cleaning cycle will use so much more ink than a purge sheet that the ink used by the purge sheets will get lost in the noise.


Mike

Thanks for all this info ... will try this out.

Thanks Bruce.

... also for the tip on viewing a video from a certain spot, did not know you could do that.
