Can not get large Corel Draw File to Fully Print ot a Designjet 130.
Posted on 2005-03-29
Have a Corel Draw 12 image that was created to 92" wide by 78" long. The HP 130 is 24" wide, so we are tiling the pages 4 x 2 (8 pages). Corel will only print the first tile and then over 2 hours went by before we gave up. The processor is a P4 2.4 with 2 gigs of RAM using a USB connection to the HP 130.
So we created an Adobe Acrobat file to print. This works only on the low quality setting. When we tile out pages over low quality the printer goes part way to the printer on each page and quites. As you move up from low to normal to high we get shorter pages.
Also in the conversion between Corel and Acrobat we lose some sizing as the Corel image was 92" x 78" the Acrobat image comes out 90 x 78.
Any one have any suggestions or other sources that might help us? The software company's haven't helped and HP only states that the tiling aspect of the print driver is part of the software not the print driver.
