Question

What is the signifgance of printing from "design layer" or "sheet layer"?? In my ever and ongoing effort to get prints from a HP 9800 DeskJet; I have been asked this question by tech support and have noticed in forum post that the esteemed Katie has asked the same question. I wonder if there is some mystical quality attributed to printing from one or the other of these layers? I have been trying to print from "design layer" and seem to have earned bad Karma. No joy.

Printing from a sheet layer adds a few other levels of settings than printing from a design layer, something important when diagnosing a printing issue.

What types of problems are you having while printing?

What version of OS 10.4 are you using?

Katie,

Thanks for the answer regarding design and sheet layers. The problems a several. Sometimes I will send a job to printer and after an interminable wait nothing! So i look in the printer setup utility and there is no job qued - as if I did not send. Other t imes I send a job to print and some part of the sheet is cut off while ther is stii paper to print on.

I would try to print from a sheet layer buthave no idea of the best way to convert a design layer tpo a sheet layer. Tried creating a new sheet layer and copying & pasting a design layer to that---seems to be a bit more involved than that --some kind of scale thing.

Perhaps you could suggest a method.

Thanks
