The Settings Editor is a web-based application and therefore accessible via an Internet browser... The Settings Editor enables you to manage settings or to display information in the following areas... [Media] [Preferences] [Workflow] [Configuration] [Support] [Transaction printing] (optional)

Page 38

You can upgrade the printer software and the Microsoft Windows software through this section... You can downgrade patches through this section... Follow the instructions on the control panel when you upgrade or down- grade the software... When you enable [Download automatically] an update is downloaded automatically, when available via ORS... You only have to install the update... From release 3... 3 onwards, you can select the setting to keep existing jobs on the system when you upgrade the software from USB... From release 3... 3 onwards, the jobs on the sys- tem are not deleted after you upgraded the software from server...

Page 39

When an error occurs, the help desk of your printer supplier can ask you to create and send a datadump file... The datadump file is a ... zip file that contains detailed technical information about your system... Furthermore, the system can store trace log files in ... zip files... You can save both ... zip files to a network location or to a USB drive... The configuration report contains information about the configuration of your printing sys- tem, for example information about the sys- tem configuration, controller configuration or network settings... You can print the configura- tion report for backup purposes, for example... Follow the instructions on the control panel when you save a file or print a report...

Page 40

The [System settings] section contains settings to change the date and time of the system, or the system of measurement used... When you change the system of measurement, all corre- sponding values on the system will be changed... For example, when you change [Met- ric] into [Imperial], all values will be displayed in inches... Furthermore, when a new finisher was added to your configuration, you can use the [Update finisher configuration] function to tell the sys- tem that your configuration was updated... Then the finisher will be added to the output loca- tions in the job parameters section, for exam- ple... From the [System settings] you can also indi- cate the media in the bulk trays one and two...

Page 43

10 [Accounting] Define the [Accounting mode] and the [Account ID]... The [Accounting mode] is only available when the [Identifica- tion enabled] setting in the Settings Editor on the PRIS- MAsync controller is set to [Yes]...

Page 44

The machine is used in different printing environments... Each environment requires other settings to optimize the workflow or to meet your personal workflow preferences... The machine contains a number of default workflow profiles to help you optimize your workflow... The default workflow profiles are combinations of frequently used settings for print jobs ([Receive], [Print] and [Output])... However, the workflow profiles cannot cover all the possible workflows you may need... Therefore, you can also define the settings individually (custom workflow)...

Page 45

[Unattended] You want to continue printing while you are absent, for example after working hours... Then the machine will print the scheduled jobs, provi- ded that all the required media, supplies and output locations are avail- able...

Page 46

[Off] The machine keeps printing all the jobs... The machine does not stop before the next scheduled job, unless there is a reason to stop... For example when a media is not available... 4

Page 47

[Banners] Each banner page of a job is delivered to the output lo- cation with an offset... This helps you to identify the sepa- rate jobs... The jobs themselves are stacked in one straight line...

IMPORTANT Make sure that you remove the packaging carefully from the paper because glue stains on the paper can pollute the machine... To prevent pollution, it is advised to remove the first and the last sheet of a pack of paper... In case of pollution of the machine, you must carry out the drum cleaning procedure via the Maintenance section on the control panel...

Page 61

Besides loading media via the [Load] button in the [Schedule] view, there are two ways to open a tray and to load and assign media: 1... Through the softkey for the [Trays] view at the bottom of the control panel... 2... Through the tray hardkey at the right-hand side of the control panel...

Page 62

A list of media from the Media catalogue appears... The list displays all the media in the Media catalogue that match the position of the paper guides inside the closed paper tray... When the list is empty, the media catalog does not contain media that match the position of the paper guides...

Page 63

When a job is submitted that requires media that are not included in the media catalog, these media become temporary media... The control panel displays the temporary media in the following places... In the list of [Required media] in the [Schedule] view, when the job is scheduled for printing... In the list of [Temporary media] in the [Media] tab of the [System] view...

The system is able to handle pre-printed media without problems if the guidelines regarding pre- printed media and inks are taken into account... In case media or inks are used that are not listed in the guidelines, the use of pre-printed media can lead to undesired print quality issues... To prevent print quality issues, a [Pre-printed mode] function is available on the printer... It is advised to enable the [Pre-printed mode] when there are problems with processing pre-printed media... The system will then be cleaned at fixed intervals... It is advised to enable the [Pre-printed mode] only when you process pre-printed media... Afterwards, the function should be disabled...

NOTE The text on the [Advanced media settings] button has changed into [Custom], which indicates that a default setting in the [Advanced media settings] section has changed...

Page 78

The printer can handle wax paper... Wax paper is a type of paper that is made moisture-proof through the application of wax... When you use wax paper, the system can become polluted, which can lead to undesired print quality issues... To solve this, a [Wax mode] function is available on the printer... It is advised to use the [Wax mode] in case of problems with processing wax paper... Then the system will be cleaned automatically after printing wax paper... It is advised to enable the [Wax mode] only when you process wax paper... Afterwards, the function should be disabled...

Media registration is an indication for how accurately an image is positioned on a sheet of paper... The position and the form of a printed image can differ slightly from the original image or the digital image... Possible causes: Printer component tolerances... Media size tolerances...

Page 83

The image is not in the center of the sheet (shifted image)...

Page 84

The top of the image is smaller than the bot- tom of the image, or the other way around (trapezoid shape image)...

Page 85

When you print text on forms, the text must be printed in the designated area... For example, an address or a date must be printed at the correct position... Here you see an example where the printed date is not positioned correctly...

Page 86

1... On the control panel, select the media for which you want to perform the media registration... You can start a media registration from the trays view (touch [Trays] -> [Optimize]), or from the media catalog (touch [System] -> [Media])... There you can select the required media...

Page 87

which you want to perform the media registration... The media registration can be different for LEF and SEF... When you start a media registration from the trays view, the feed direction is already selected... If the printer is not warmed up, the media registration starts by warming up the printer...

Page 88

Page 89

Manual media registration... Only needed in incidental cases... The manual media registration can be done via the control pan- el (see Via the Control Panel on page 96) and via the Settings Editor... The manual media registration via the control panel is prefer- red because you can print the verification chart immediately after you changed a setting... Both procedures have the same result...

Page 90

NOTE You cannot print the verification chart on media that you can only print 1-sided because the verification chart is 2-sided... Use your own job to verify if the media registration is optimal... Examples of 1-sided media are tab sheets and transparency media with paper backing...

Page 91

5... Touch [Print the verification chart]... The verification chart is printed and you can verify the media registration for the selected media...

Lower section (2) The required values... Use the verification chart to determine which value to change... The sec- tions hereafter describe how to determine the values you must enter... For most situations you can correct the media registration with the standard settings... Only in exceptional cases, you need the advanced settings...

Page 100

You must decide whether you want to correct the media registration of the front side or the back side or both... You can base this decision on the processing of the jobs that have an incorrect media registration, for example cutting, booklet making or folding... To correct the media registration of the front side touch [Describe front side]... For the back side, touch [Describe back side]...

control panel (see Via the Control Panel on page 96) describe how to determine the values you must enter... Only the [Corrections for preprinted media] are not available on the control panel... These settings are described in this section... For 1-sided media you simply have to correct the media registration of the front side... Examples of 1-sided media are tab sheets and transparency media with paper backing... For 1- sided media you cannot use the verification chart because the verification chart is 2-sided... To perform the media registration you must use your own image to determine the required values... Possible settings, as displayed in the Settings Editor: Actual sheet size Registration front side

Page 115

When you use preprinted media, there is a possibility that the image is not at the correct position, even when the media registration is correct... For example, it is possible that a preprinted line along an edge of the media covers part of the printed image... In that case you can perform an image shift for all the jobs that are printed on this media...

You must perform a manual media registration... You cannot perform the automatic adjustment for media that you can only print 1-sided, because the adjustment pro- cedure prints 2-sided registration sheets... You cannot print the verification chart for 1-sided media because the verification chart is 2-sided... Use your own job to determine the required values and to verify the media registration...

Hotfolder Hotfolders are primarily aimed at recurring print workflows... In these workflows, identical PDFs or other printable files with identi- cal settings are printed on a regular basis... The advantage of a hot- folder is that you do not have to open a file and check the settings before printing... Operators can see hotfolders as a folder on their workstation where they can simply drag & drop files... A hotfolder option is the default ticket ('default_ticket... jdf') in a hot- folder, which defines the settings for the print jobs... The files will be printed according to settings of the hotfolder default ticket in that hotfolder...

Page 124

Control panel After a print job has arrived on the PRISMAsync controller, the print job becomes visible on the control panel... There you can change a number of job settings or combine print jobs, for exam- ple... It is best to change the print job settings in the list of [Waiting jobs] or in the optional [DocBox]... With the optional [Page pro- gramming] function, you can insert pages and define the media and finishing settings for the page ranges in a job...

Touch to browse through the directories on the USB drive... 4... Touch the file or files you want to print, or touch [Select] to select multiple files... 5... Touch [Print] to send the file to the list of [Scheduled jobs] immediately, or 6... Touch [Save] to save a copy of the file to another location on your printer such as the list of

Page 130

NOTE It depends on the set size and the moment you press the Stop button when the printer will stop... For example, when you have a large set of 1,000 pages and you press the Stop button

Page 131

NOTE The [Stop after job] button is not available when the [Confirm start of job] setting in the active [Workflow profile] is set to [On]... Then the printer stops automatically after each job...

Page 132

NOTE For the list of [Printed jobs], you can indicate in the Settings Editor that the list must be cleaned automatically at specified times... The factory default is one day... Furthermore, in the Settings Editor you can manually clean up the jobs in the lists of [Printed jobs], [Scheduled jobs], [Waiting jobs] and the [DocBox]...

Page 133

Usually, the settings for a print job is defined in PDLs, applications, printer drivers, automated workflows, or hotfolder default tickets... However, when a job has arrived on the PRISMAsync controller, you can change a number of job settings for all jobs that are currently not being printed... This section gives an overview of the print job settings that you can change on the control panel...

Page 134

5 Action buttons The action buttons indicate the actions you can car- ry out... With the optional [Page programming] function, you can insert pages and define the media and fin- ishing settings for the page ranges in a job...

Page 135

Here you can select the media for the job... The list displays all the media that are available in the media catalog including the temporary me- dia... The media catalog is a list of media that you can define in the Settings Editor...

Page 136

[Print sides] When [Front] is [On], you can indicate which side of the front cover must be printed... You can select... [Both sides] [Front side] [Back side] [None]

Page 137

[Same-up flipped] The printer prints the same image on 1 side of a sheet... The images are rotated compared to each other... By default, the system keeps the size of the originals... If necessary, use the Zoom function to reduce or enlarge the size of the images...

Page 138

An image on a sheet may be smaller than the media size of the output, for example because you scaled the image to 70% of its original size... The [Align] setting allows you to indicate the position of the image on the sheet... [Top left] moves the image to the upper left corner of the sheet...

Page 139

[Shift] [Margin shift] Use this setting to increase or decrease the margin... By default, the values of the front side and the back side are interlocked... This means that the values for the front side and the back side remain identical... Widening the margin can be useful if you want to staple or punch the output, for example... Narrowing the margin can be useful if you do not need additional space for stapling or punching the output, for example... By default, the front side and the back side are linked ... Then the image on both sides will be shifted the same amount... Touch to terminate the link and shift each side individually...

Page 140

[Print delivery] 1 [Output location] Select the output location for the job... Depend- ing on the settings for your copy job, the ma- chine automatically suggests the preferred output location for your job... However, you can manually overrule this suggestion... [Stacker/stapler upper tray]

Page 141

[Header down SEF] Deliver the prints with the header at the bot- tom side and in landscape position (horizon- tal)... 4

Page 142

The minimum line width function is required to keep thin lines visible... The lines in PS/PDF jobs always keep a minimum width of 1/600 inch... However, when you print special data such as CAD drawings, smaller lines may be required... Therefore, you can turn the minimum line width function off... Then even thinner lines will be printed... 4

Page 143

The default raster is [LINE_200LPI]... This is best suited for over 95% of all prints... In special ca- ses, for example moir patterns from scanned images, you can try to improve the print result with the [DOT_200LPI] raster or even the [DOT_125LPI] raster... However, then you may loose some fine details... The raster screen for PS/PDF jobs is [LINE_200LPI]... All raster screens are compati- ble with resolutions of 600x2400 dpi and 1200x1200 dpi...

Page 144

[Binding] [None] Here you can define the required number of sta- ples... Furthermore you can define where you want the staples with the [Location] option... The available locations for one staple: [Top left] [Top right] [Bottom left] [Bottom right]

Page 146

You can indicate the size of the resulting docu- ment after trimming... You can either touch [Size] to select a default media size or manual- ly define the width and length of the docu- ment... When you define a non-standard media size, the [Size] box displays [Custom]...

Page 147

[Separator sheets] [On] When the [Separator sheets] setting is ena- bled, a separate sheet is inserted automatically before each set of a job to create a clear dis- tinction between two sets... Separator sheets are always empty... In the Settings Editor, select a media from the media catalog use as separa- tor sheets... You can also indicate the feed di- rection of the separator sheets (long-edge feed or short-edge feed)...

Page 148

The selected workflow determines the destination of jobs... When jobs go to the list of [Waiting jobs], you must manually send the jobs to the print queue (list of [Scheduled jobs])... This enables you to keep full control of all jobs that must be printed...

Page 149

NOTE To give priority to a job in the list of [Waiting jobs], you must first touch [Print] to send the job to the list of [Scheduled jobs]... There you can select the job and touch [Print now]... To give priority to a job in the list of [Printed jobs], you must first reprint the job... The job is sent to the list of [Waiting jobs]... From there, you must send the job to the list of [Scheduled jobs]... There you can select the job and touch [Print now]...

Page 150

When you want to print a job as soon as possible, but not necessarily immediately, you must use the [To top] function... The [To top] function moves the selected job to the second position in the list of [Scheduled jobs], below the active print job ... The job will be printed when the active print job is ready...

Page 151

1... On the control panel, touch [Jobs] -> [Queues]... 2... If collapsed, first touch to expand the list of [Scheduled jobs]... 3... Touch the job or jobs you want to print later or use the [Select] button to make a selection...

full, jobs must be deleted manually or automatically on a regular basis... In the Settings Editor, you can indicate the cleaning period, then the clean-up is carried out at midnight or at the next start-up (in general the next morning)...

Page 153

A label is a name or tag that helps you to identify certain jobs on the control panel... When a job is sent to the printer, the person who submits the job can add a label to that job... The label can be any name that helps to identify certain jobs... The label can be de- fined in the printer driver, in a job ticket or via an automated work- flow... When the label in the printer driver is identical to a defined automated workflow, then the print job will be printed with the settings of this automated workflow... For example, the label Cus- tomer XYZ can be added to jobs... Then you can select and print all the jobs for 'Customer XYZ' at once...

Page 154

The bundle function allows you to combine two or more jobs into one new job... For example, this can be convenient when the participants of a meeting need several documents in a specific order... Often, the required documents are sent from several workplaces to the printer in advance... Normally, this means that you must print the documents first and sort or staple them later... By using the bundle function you can determine the order of the documents before printing and print all documents in the correct order in only 1 print job...

Page 155

A [Create bundle] window appears that allows you to make some changes... 4... If necessary, use the [Up] and [Down] buttons to change the job order... 5... If necessary, change the generic job settings, such as [Number of bundles]... 6... Press [OK]...

Page 156

The [Ticket] button is available at the following sections of the control panel... [Scheduled jobs]... [Waiting jobs]... [Printed jobs] (if enabled in the Settings Editor)... [DocBox] (in the drop-down list )...

Page 157

You can make a proof to check whether the quality and the layout of the output meet your expectations... When you use the [Proof] function, the machine prints one copy of the job... You can only make a proof for a job in the list of [Waiting jobs] or in the [DocBox] (optional)...

Page 158

NOTE The descriptions of the colors of the bars and the indication of the required amount of sheets are only valid for document printing... For streaming jobs , all the bars remain grey until the paper trays are empty or the output locations are full... Then the machine stops and the bars become red... Furthermore, the media toolbar does not indicate the required amount of sheets...

Page 159

The [Required media] pane displays the media that are required for each scheduled job... For each required media, the media properties are displayed (see list of references below)... The bars show the availability of the media... The bars can have the following colors...

Page 160

The list of [Required media] shows the required media for the sched- uled jobs... When a paper tray is highlighted in blue, the highlighted pa- per tray contains the media that is also highlighted in blue in the list of [Required media]...

Page 161

NOTE When you load a different media size, you must also set the paper guides inside the paper tray to the correct dimensions... You cannot change the media size for the internal bulk trays one and two... These are preset to a fixed media size... To switch to another media size for the bulk trays, these trays must be adapted manually first...

The binding edge determines whether the binding position is along the long edge or the short edge of the media... The binding edge is usually set via the printer driver, for example... However, you can view and change the binding edge via the operator panel... The binding edge has a relation with the direction of the margin shift, orientation and staple position...

Page 164

If you want to print a job on other media than originally defined for that job, you can select a different media via the operator panel... Requirements regarding the new media: The media must be available in the media catalog... The media must have the same size as the original media...

Page 165

You can change the following settings for both the front cover and the back cover separately... Enable or disable the use of a cover... Select the desired media from the media catalog... Indicate whether the cover must be left empty, printed one-sided, or printed two-sided...

Page 166

If you want to create space for staples or punch holes, for example, you can use the [Align] function... The preview in the right-hand pane of the control panel displays the consequences of your changes...

Page 167

If you want to create space for staples or punch holes, for example, you can use the [Align] function... However, when the [Align] function is not precise enough, you can use the [Margin shift] and [Image shift] functions... These functions allow you to shift the image more precisely... The preview in the right-hand pane of the control panel displays the consequences of your changes... If you shift the margin too much, you may loose part of the image...

Page 168

[Advanced settings] Finishing equipment often requires that the printed sheets are de- livered in a certain order... For finishers that are integrated in your printing system, the required settings are adapted automatically... However, sometimes it can be necessary to change a number of settings manually, for example when you want to finish the prints using offline finishers... If required, you can change the [Sheet or- der], [Sheet orientation], [Print order] and [Rotation]...

The minimum line width function is required to keep thin lines visible... The lines in PS/PDF jobs always keep a minimum width of 1/600 inch... However, when you print special data such as CAD drawings, smaller lines may be required... Therefore, you can turn the mini- mum line width function off... Then even thinner lines will be prin- ted... 4

Page 171

The default raster is [LINE_200LPI]... This is best suited for over 95% of all prints... In special cases, for example moir patterns from scanned images, you can try to improve the print result with the [DOT_200LPI] raster or even the [DOT_125LPI] raster... However, then you may loose some fine details... The raster screen for PS/PDF jobs is [LINE_200LPI]... All raster screens are compatible with resolutions of 600x2400 dpi and 1200x1200 dpi...

Page 179

[Queue name] You can enter a distinguishing name for the automated workflow (maximum 25 characters)... This name is also used as a label on the control panel... This helps the operator to identify certain jobs on the control panel... In this way, the operator can identify from which LPR queue or workflow the job has arrived... Different LPR queues can have the same label if the operator chooses to do so... In that case, the operator cannot distinguish from which specific queue a job has arrived... The LPR queue name is not displayed on the con- trol panel...

Page 180

[Tumble] You can indicate the orientation of page images on opposite sides of a sheet... When [Tumble] is set to [Yes], the two pages are oriented in such a way that the binding is at the top or bottom... The image is rota- ted 180 degrees on alternate pages... Both sides of the page are printed... However, the position of the image is reversed (from top to bottom) on every other page... When [Tumble] is set to [No], the binding is at the left or right... The images are not rotated on alternate pages...

Page 181

[Separator sheets] [A separator sheet is an empty sheet that is inserted before a set... If 'As in job' is selected, the addition of a separator sheet to the job is as defined in the job... If the job does not specify separator sheet, no separator sheet is added to the job... ]

Page 203

When the output recovery is suppressed, the printer will not automatically make sure that the output is corrected after a recovery... All pending pages in the printer will be deleted and the stack will be ejected... The host system and the operator are responsible for the recovery... The operator must restart the job manually on the correct page...

Page 204

Pages that are copied to the memory of the controller are deleted from the system... The operator must send these missing pages as a new transaction print job to the printer...

Page 205

The control panel dis- plays instructions on how to solve the pa- per jam... The operator has to remove these the jammed sheets manually...

Page 206

For transaction printing, the content of the paper trays (in terms of media from the media catalog) is translated into a format that the controller understands... However, the controller receives only a limited amount of information (name or size of the media)... This can lead to miscommunication where the controller misses a media requirement... Then the controller will ask for the required media via a message on the control panel... This [Media message] indicates the name or size of the missing media...

Page 207

3... Select one of the 16 memory locations of the logical-tray table to be used for the required media... Note that the media that was previously allocated to that memory position in the setup will be overwritten... Then that media will no longer be available to the transaction stream... Now you can assign other media or continue the print job...

Page 208

2... From the list of media, select the media that will be used as the media the controller is asking for and touch [OK]... The media will now be displayed with the name that is defined in the media catalog... If you do not select media from the media catalog with the requested size or name, the printer will select a media with the default size...

The copy function contains a number of factory default templates, for example for copying mixed-size originals or combining several sets of originals... Furthermore, you can define customized templates... The factory default templates are directly available when you access the copy function... When you select one of these templates, the system sets the typical settings for the selected type of copy job automatically... Next you can define all other settings for the originals and the output...

Page 212

Send the job to the DocBox to get extended possibilities to pro- grammed each page separately... When you select this template, the destination of the copy job is set to the first available DocBox... The destination is always set to this DocBox, even when a different copy job destination has been defined for the active workflow profile... However, you can change the DocBox to which the job must be sent...

Page 213

You can place an original either vertically or horizontally... Always align the top edge of your original with the back edge of the glass plate (by the arrow in the top left corner) or the back edge of the ADF...

Page 214

You can place originals of the following sizes either vertically or horizontally... However, the scanning speed for horizontally placed originals is somewhat slower than that of vertically placed originals... Place originals horizontally when you copy with a preset zoom, for example when you enlarge an A4 original to A3 paper...

Page 215

Use the glass plate to copy or scan bound originals (such as books and magazines), heavy or lightweight originals, and transparencies... Also place originals on the glass plate when you want to copy an A3 original with an image that extends all the way to the edges without the periphery of the original being cut off...

The machine prints the same image multiple times next to each other... By default, the system keeps the size of the originals... When you copy A4/LTR originals with the setting [Same up] and [Images per sheet] is two, the ma- chine will automatically print the job on A3 / 11" x 17", for example... When you cut the A3 / 11"x 17" sheets in two, you get two identical A4 / LTR cop- ies of your document... To reduce your A4/LTR orig- inals to A5/STMT prints, you can use the zoom function or select another media type...

Page 226

The [Align] setting allows you to indicate the posi- tion of the image on the sheet... [Top left] moves the image to the upper left corner of the sheet...

Page 227

[Shift] [Margin shift] Use this setting to increase or decrease the mar- gin... By default, the values of the front side and the back side are interlocked... This means that the val- ues for the front side and the back side remain identical... Widening the margin can be useful if you want to staple or punch the output, for example... Narrow- ing the margin can be useful if you do not need additional space for stapling or punching the out- put, for example... If you want to define a different value for each side, press ... The icon changes to the unlocked sta- tus... Now you can define the values for the front side and the back side separately...

DocBox is short for Document Box... The DocBox function, which is available through the operator panel, creates a buffer between the preparation of a job, for example page programming, and the printing of the job... The DocBox supports the operator by offering comprehensive means to store, group, edit and reprint documents... These editing options are a subset of the PRISMAprepare job preparation software...

The machine prints the same image multiple times next to each other... By default, the system keeps the size of the originals... When you copy A4/LTR originals with the setting [Same up] and [Images per sheet] is two, the ma- chine will automatically print the job on A3 / 11" x 17", for example... When you cut the A3 / 11"x 17" sheets in two, you get two identical A4 / LTR cop- ies of your document... To reduce your A4/LTR orig- inals to A5/STMT prints, you can use the zoom function or select another media type...

Page 289

An image on a sheet may be smaller than the media size of the output, for example because you scaled the image to 70% of its original size... The [Align] setting allows you to indicate the position of the image on the sheet... [Top left] moves the image to the upper left corner of the sheet...

Page 290

[Shift] [Margin shift] Use this setting to increase or decrease the margin... By default, the values of the front side and the back side are interlocked... This means that the values for the front side and the back side remain identical... Widening the margin can be useful if you want to staple or punch the output, for example... Narrowing the margin can be useful if you do not need additional space for stapling or punching the output, for example... By default, the front side and the back side are linked ... Then the image on both sides will be shifted the same amount... Touch to terminate the link and shift each side individually...

The minimum line width function is required to keep thin lines visible... The lines in PS/PDF jobs always keep a minimum width of 1/600 inch... However, when you print special data such as CAD drawings, smaller lines may be required... Therefore, you can turn the minimum line width function off... Then even thinner lines will be printed... 4

The default raster is [LINE_200LPI]... This is best suited for over 95% of all prints... In special ca- ses, for example moir patterns from scanned images, you can try to improve the print result with the [DOT_200LPI] raster or even the [DOT_125LPI] raster... However, then you may loose some fine details... The raster screen for PS/PDF jobs is [LINE_200LPI]... All raster screens are compati- ble with resolutions of 600x2400 dpi and 1200x1200 dpi...
