Hi, new member here. Thanks for having me!

I have a Canon Pro 10s, wanting to schedule unclog jobs that recruit all 10 ink channels (including photo/matte black/chroma optimiser). I'm told there's no one driver setting that achieves this. Photo matte paper will trigger use of matte black, photo glossy will trigger others (unsure which).

Unless there's an easier way, I'm trying to alternate two separate unclog jobs, using the matte paper and glossy paper respectively, both scheduled every 4 days (so one will happen every 2 days).

Is this possible? I only see the facility to add more jobs to the same schedule. Thanks.

So what I'd like to do is stagger two separate unclog cycles - one to print "on first cycle (say 4th November), then every 4 days", and the other "on first cycle (6th November), then every 4 days". So something is happening every 2 days. Seems there's only the option to schedule once, unless I'm missing a trick therein to achieve the above conditions.

Alternative solution discovered at http://ddisoftware.com/tech/qimage-ultimate/purge-sheet-unclog-job-questions/

One thing to note is that if your printer only uses matte ink when you choose matte paper, in order to exercise both photo black and matte black inks, you'd have to add two unclog jobs to the schedule: one with a glossy type paper selected and a second job where you select matte paper and only check the black ink.  That way the first job will exercise all but the matte black ink and the second job will cover the matte black ink only.

With generous thanks to Mike - this has solved it!
