VW 10.5.1 & HP 500PS

Question

  • 0

We use PC's & VW 10.5.1 - plotter is doing some selective printing, i.e. -not everything that's on my computer screen is printing?

Sometimes it will print in color but not black and white, sometimes it won't print in either. Sometimes it won't print correctly if a layer is grayed out. It can be very frustrating [Mad]

Any suggestions on what's causing this??? [Confused]

This is what I found for the Driver:

HP 500PS24 + HPGL2

It says it's a HP Designjet Print Drvier v. 5.34

The problem seems to occur when there is a class or layer set to be "grayed out".

Postscript handle colour/gray tone better compare to RTL/HPGL2.

When we print graphic / drawings / illustration with grey tone or lines, it always frustrated under PCL/RTL format. Since your plotter come with PS... make use of it.

Setup your plotter as postscript plotter. I'm sure U know how to do it.

* Postscript & RTL/HPGL2 should be set up separately !!!!!
