I, too, just got this a few days ago. I have been watching the videos, but is this in printed instructions as well? I like it, but want to get to know it better. Using with an old Canon 9000 Mark II and with a new Epson ET 8550. Purchased under the influence of Jose Rodriguez.

Please let me/us welcome you to Qimage and this great forum. This is a great place to ask and learn as each of us has been brand new and in wonder confusion too. Just  ask....   and bear in mind that many times, Mike, the author of Qimage will jump in and answer too.
I just got a new 8550 also. Isn't that automatic tray opening creepy?
As to printed instructions, over the years, Qimage has grown and matured, and an outdated printed Help file is obsolete. Instead Mike makes on point videos. These are marked throughout Qimage with a RED "V".. I too, like printed instructions better, but logistically, not so easy to keep up.
The answer: Jump in here and ask, ask anything even what you might think is simple and you are shy to ask again.
Plenty of nice folks on here to answer...
PS Mike is going to be on Jose's stream on Sunday at 1:00pm EST

PS2  Did you figure out where they store the plain copy paper in that 8550?  I had to get help for that??

Have you tried using the ink analysis in the job dialog?  Open the job log, select a range of jobs, and then right click in that range and select "Paper/Ink Analysis".

Like counting prints, it'll give you a count of the area that has been printed in a certain range of (for example) dates.  I don't "plug" the feature often because it has limited use.  It only gives you the amount of area printed in Qimage.  It can't account for ink usage in other software, cleaning cycles, etc.  Looking at ink area or print count also can't tell you how much of each ink was used.  You might have printed a lot of photos with blue sky this past month while the month before that you printed a lot of green foliage.

It does, however, give you an idea of how many prints of a certain size you could print between two dates, for example between the date of the prior refill and the current one.  As an example, an 8x10 has an area of 80 square inches.  If you find out that a certain range of jobs used 2000 square inches of area, that would be equivalent to 2000 / 80 = 25 8x10 prints.

Regards,
Mike

For those who refill cartridges and have disabled the ink cartridge level monitor,
It would be useful to have a counter for the print size(s)
I only use one printer, so a single counter would be adequate.
Others may have multiple printers so they might want multiple counters, one for each printer

With the 'Gear' icon I mean the wrench and hammer, next to 'For new prints ...' in the 'Print' section, below 'vMore'.

Same deal: you are editing a print size in the list of print sizes above that button.  Those have nothing to do with media size.  Media size (if that's what you are looking for) is on the other tab: the Printers and Settings tab.  If you are trying to edit a print size in the list and not the media size, you can click on a size in the list and then right click and select "Customize selected size".  Or... that hammer/wrench button will do it too.

But I think I see now what you are trying to do: you entered the same size twice.  210x297 and 297x210 are the same size; they are just different orientations.  The size list will always list the small size first.  This avoids confusion when dealing with (and sorting) various sizes and Qimage is going to rotate the prints to fit best on the page anyway when doing automatic layouts.  The way to change print orientation is to use the orientation (rotate) buttons below the print size.

Regards,
Mike

Hi Fred,
I'm using an Epson SC-P900 with a rolladapter unit.
With the 'Gear' icon I mean the wrench and hammer, next to 'For new prints ...' in the 'Print' section, below 'vMore'.

Media size settings are 305.0 mm x 458.0 mm (printable 305.0 mm x 457.9 mm

Martin.

The dialog you show can only be initiated by right clicking in the list of print sizes and selecting "Customize selected size".  At that point you are changing one of the print sizes in the print size list.  That has nothing to do with media size.  To change media size, you drop down the "Media Size" selection on the Printers and Settings tab.  The sizes available in that list are dictated by your printer driver.  Unless your printer driver offers an option to add custom media sizes, you cannot change them.

Regards,
Mike

When I use the Gear Icon, can I enter user-specific media settings. (See attachments 1, 2 & 3)
So for example DIN A4 Portrait (210 mm x 297 mm) and DIN A4 Landscape (297 mm x 210 mm).

The GEAR icon as far as I can see, has no place for print size.  That is for AI driver settings as well as interpolation choices, etc.
Please tell us what printer you are using.

I made a landscape print of 297 x 210 mm by telling Qimage (in More) that is the size I want.
Then you need to select a paper size that has a printable area that is greater than 297 x 210 mm.
Please tell your printer model, and the paper size you have selected.
See top of screen snap showing the printable area of paper I selected, and printer choice.

So for example DIN A4 Portrait (210 mm x 297 mm) and DIN A4 Landscape (297 mm x 210 mm).

But when I look into the 'Prints'-section, the above standing settings are the same, 210 x 297.

And although the dimensions entered at -> Printers and settings -> Media size are sufficient, I cannot select DIN A4 - Landscape.
What is going on and/or am I doing wrong?

With regards,
Martin

Yes, I copied the folder with the images that has the black bar issues, renamed it and the issue in the copied folders did not reoccur. I will try the 'rebuild thumbs/raw' if the issue reoccurs. I've already deleted the previous folder with the black bar issue.

Thanks Mike
