I tried to print a quark express document two weeks ago and it printed in 5 minutes. It's a 9mb file..I tried printing it yesterday, and it took almost an hour. Nothing has changed on my system. My computer is a 7100/80 running system 7.5.5 and has 40Mb ram. I have reinstalled quark and the laserwriter software with no change. I have found that if i turn off background printing the print time drops to about 20 minutes...still higher than the 5 minutes of two weeks ago. My computer is on ethernet and I am using laserwriter bridge to print to it. This setup has been working fine for me for a long time. The document contains both TIFF and EPS files. Can anyone provide any helpful suggestions...?
