Re: Upgrading my Mac OS. Will I have issues?

Hello,

generally, printing halftones with PrintFab Pro XL works also on Ventura.

Can you describe your problem - e.g. you cannot find the dialog "Special settings screen printings"?

Re: RE-Turboprint 2.15 needed

The sorting may be a bit confusing, at the top are RPM and TGZ downloads and at the end the DEB downloads. The oldest TurboPrint version that is currently available is 2.36-1 from 2015.

Re: System Error when printing on DesignJet using PrintFab driver

Hello, the "system error 79:04" may occur when printing at the highest resolution (2400dpi). Printing at 300-1200dpi should work.

Please let me know if this solves the problem.

Re: What limitations once test period is over

Hello Johnny, after the end of the trial a "TurboPrint" logo is printed on the page, so you can only use it for testing, not for real prints.

Re: Upgrading my Mac OS. Will I have issues?

Hello cabezon37, often new security mechanisms of new macOS versions require adaptions in PrintFab, thus older PrintFab versions often cannot be used on the latest macOS release. You will probably need an update for using PrintFab on Catalina or Big Sur. Note that an update of your license key allow...

Re: Halftone Printing Settings for transparency

Hello Kees,

if you select "multi black" and enable three inks, the inks will be printed 33/33/33 percent. Currently there is no way to change this .

PrintFab bypasses all Epson driver software, the Epson driver doesn't interfere with the halftoning.

Re: Halftone Printing Settings for transparency

If you are printing pre-halftoned black-and-white images, I recommend to set "Halftone Screen Mode"="Single Black (no halftone)" (or "All Black (no halftone)" for an all black cartridge set). This is a new option that was introduced in PrintFab 2.97-4. The setting "...

Re: maximum print size on roll

Hello victorgv,

the R1900 driver in TurboPrint and PrintFab has a length limit of 129 inches (327cm) - is that length enough for your purposes? This limit can be extended by changing a config file, let me know if you need to produce longer prints.

Re: Printer does not print

I have just answered by email:
The wrong printer driver has been selected ("Epson Stylus Pro" which is a very old printer).

Please open the "PrintFab Toolbox", delete the printer entry and add it again, this time select the printer driver "Epson Stylus Pro 9800".
