Hello Mike,

Could it be that you also found a solution for added media presets in the Z3200 printer/driver?  This time I added the Photorag Ultra Smooth media preset and it stays in the Z3200 driver while Qimage mentions Unlisted [270]  as the "selected" media. I assume it would work without issues in printing and I guess you added something or this must be another hickup of HP software. Never seen it before.

Met vriendelijke groet, Ernst

No, I didn't change anything there.  It's just another example of HP not following standards with respect to the driver.  When you added the media type, HP stores it in the driver but doesn't report it to Windows.  All media types supported by the driver should be enumerated to Windows so that when software querries the driver, there is a table entry for media type index 270 that lists the media name as "Photorag Ultra Smooth".  Instead, Qimage querries the driver for media type index, it sees that the media type index is 270, looks in the media types table to find the name for that index, and there is no 270 in the index(integer)|name(string) table... so it says "Unlisted".

But yes, it will work if you select that media type in the driver because all the driver needs in order to use that media type is the index (270).  The only down side is that you can't select that (270) media type from the "Media Type" dropdown in the Qimage UI because the driver doesn't list it: you have to select it via "Properties" in the driver.

Regards,
Mike

The ability to open the driver dialog with driver defaults has been added to 2019.105.

Hi,
I have a z3100 and the HP driver sometimes corrupts and will not retain settings like color management or rotation.

If I overwrite the driver to sort this, what would I have to do to restore all my print sizes, paper sizes etc.

Ok Lets see if this helps.
I make many printer setups for myself and all the papers and sizes and profiles I use.
I probably have 50 or more.  
I create the perfect setup for the job first. That means printer selection, paper size, paper type, matching profile, and any other peripheral that you are using; like Smart Sharpen, etc,
Make a print... ALL GOOD? pleased?
Now SAVE THIS setup by using the little SAVE routine shown as a icon of a floppy disk located to the right of the PROPERTIES button on the right of the Printers and settings tab. As you can see in 119 below, there are buttons. Select the P for Printer button, name it, and Save it.

Look at snap 116. I messed it up... Cheap Paper at 13 x 19 size, Quality a 3 of 5, odd profile, wil 117 showing weird settings.
I recall in 118 a Canon Semi Gloss paper with all the correct driver settings, profiles, quality settings, paper size etc. All in RECALL P button and OPEN.
Hope this helps
Fred

Yes.  Me too.  I have never used anything other than the Epson cartridges.  I have not studied this very scientifically - I have no metrics.  So I still get clogs - unpredictably as I mentioned.  But I am positive that they are much fewer and farther between now that I regularly run the unclog cycle.

Thanks for your reply.

I also have had 3 or 4 Epson printers and the nozzle clogging started when I changed from dye inks always used epsons.

I just perhaps thought that their was a good solution.

From time to time I have a similar problem with my HP Z3200. Totally different printer and aimed at roll printing but nevertheless;  if the physical size of the roll width is even 1 mm less than what a 44" (1118mm) or 35" (914mm) roll width should be then a landscape printing page that is set at 1118mm wide will automatically turn to portrait mode on its way to the printer. The printer measures the width when the roll is installed and the driver adds the auto turning "feature". So I keep a bit of tolerence by using print pages 1mm less. Last week however that was even not enough and a stroke of 180mm wide and 1117mm long (several color proofs) was printed at the right side in the length of the Photorag roll. Does not make you happy. Careful QU intelligent nesting of the bigger prints on the remaining sheet made it less an issue.


So check the real sheet size and what has been set in QU or driver. Totally different printer though ..........


Met vriendelijke groet, Ernst
