OSX optional page format>>BLANKS!


when defining an optional format in the page setup menu and highlightting it, it shows on screen OK.

printing on a HP designjet 800 PS however results in blank sheets. Why are we restricted in page sizes?

When setting up Custom Page sizes for th 800 PS, be sure to subtract the width of the plotters hard margins from the size of the page.

Defining a page larger than the plotter can actually print will give unexpected results in my experience.

For 24" x 36" Landscape prints to a 36" roll for example, we describe the custom page as Height 35.4/Width 22.75.

You can get the hard margin sizes from the plotters user guide.

Hope this helps.
