This happens when trying to use a cracked copy of Qimage.  None of the cracked copies will work properly.  If you buy the registered version, this will not happen.

Regards,
Mike

I'm sure this is a bug because this only happens sometimes (even when attempting to print the same file repeatedly). Is there someway to completely have it avoid doing this altogether? Attached is an example.

The process that's causing this to happen is many PNG files are loaded, using any of the placement methods to nest them, and then printing all pages to file. We even attempted to download a printer driver (that creates PNGs, TIF, PDFs and so on) to make it as if Qimage is sending the file directly to the printer, and some of the files it creates still have the gridlines. Some of the pages have multiple images on them and there may be 1 or 2 of them that have the gridlines while the others on the page don't.

Really hope this can be fixed. The nesting feature of this program is amazing and it saves a ton of time, but I obviously need the final print to be as intended.

Mike, thank you for the feedback - I changed the roll length and it's good to go - appreciate your help as always, many thanks!

Cheers,

Interesting! It does have a florescent source. I'll see what the big scanner/copier at work has and see if I can use that. My control over what it's doing is more limited but being new, I bet it uses LEDs.
Thanks!

It may be a limitation of using a scanner with a fluorescent light source.  Those can cause metamerism since the light source is not full spectrum.  Scanners with LED light sources produce a more consistent result.

8x10 will only have an asterisk if the roll length is not long enough to fit an 8x10.  What is the page size listed above the live view?  Try increasing the roll (page) length in the driver.

Regards,
Mike

Hi Folks,
I'm losing my mind and need some guidance here if possible. Here's the scenario I'm dealing with:

I have two printers: HP Z5200 & HP Z6

Everything as far as drivers works perfectly on the HP Z5200, I can drop in a true 8"x10" and it will output exactly 8"x10". However, with the HP Z6 not so. The print constantly outputs smaller than 8"x10" and I cannot for the life of me figure out why it's doing this?!? On the HP Z6 in the QI dashboard, only the smaller sizes below 5x7 are available to print at exactly the correct sizes, but all sizes above 8x10 are asterix *8x10 and not available...what do i need to do to enable full usage of all sizes available? Reason I ask is because both printers are 44" wide, but only the HP Z5200 is allowing me full size usage in QI...

Both drivers are the V4 version of the HP drivers available, I have tried copying every setting that exists in the HP Z5200 into the properties of the HP Z6 - but cannot get the files to print true to their original size - can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm at a loss, don't have any more hair to pull out and would be graciously thankful for any pointers from any Gurus in here that have had similar challenges in this regard.

Thanks in advance  Smiley

Vic

Thanks Bill! After much testing, I discovered that my Red River factory profile gives a wider gamut in the green than my Profile Prism profile. I like the Profile Prism results better in every way, other than the green, so I started a post in the Prism forum. You noted that my image was out of gamut in the shadows, which is exactly what I see with the Red River factory profile. With my profile, the entire green leaves are out of gamut. We'll see what happens if I can improve my Prism profile.

1) My Red River factory profile produces a wider gamut in the green than my Profile Prism efforts. My target has been stored well, but is 15 years old! I have a pretty good T/R densitometer (Xrite 811, I think). Can I measure my target and compare the results to the matching text file to determine if it's faded? What's the organization of the file? Can I create a new one myself?

2) I've seen some PR stuff on targets with wider range. Would something like that deliver a better profile? (If I could afford it!) My scanner is an Epson 4490 Photo. I think it's decent, but could it be causing a lack of gamut in the green? Maybe I have problems with other colors, but right now I'm fixated on green. FWIW, I like the results of my Profile Prism profiles better than factory in every area except for the green limitation.

Is it possible to not have these folders created in the first place?
ACTUALLY, the folders install (empty( when Qimage is installed/
So even if we delete the folder, wen you install a new version, there will be a new folder.
