Mike,

Other nesting method. With multiple images on a print page, would it be possible to shift the outer images to the edges of the print page and the inner ones at equal distances from one another? Call it Economode spacing?

Met vriendelijke groeten, Ernst

Ernst,

Can you give a little more info as to how/why this would be used?  It sounds like it would maximize paper usage.  Are you looking to just spread out the prints as far as possible on the page?

Mike,

In a sense it is to maximize paper usage. Sometimes I do not add cutting or corner marks and in Edit Page shift some images to the sides to add extra print margin's white to the borders and create a bit more than twice the (then created) border width between them. It may add an extra print on the width of the 36"or 44" roll or give just that slightly more separation to make a nicer paper cut between the prints. Mainly for print runs with the same size prints so I can repeat cut the prints with an optical alignment to an image edge.

Met vriendelijke groet, Ernst Dinkla

Optimal/Spaced kind of already does that with the exception that it also adds space at the sides so you get maximum spacing all around.  Also, have you tried using any of the Intelli methods and just setting the gap to what you prefer for spacing?

Yes, I have used them and it is more a trial and error route. In the existing nesting choices you start from the printer driver created print page with the print margins deducted. The same nesting choices starting from the entire print page would give me what I wanted. Adding a limitation of a minimum border of 5mm would avoid images cropped at the edges. Just a thought.

Met vriendelijke groet, Ernst Dinkla
