Note that the 150 ink limit settings does not limit the ink amount of single ink patches - it has onl...

Re: Demo version does not have MediaType selectable

Hello rfamiev, this behaviour is unusual, I just installed that PrintFab driver and it shows the media type list. Please reinstall the PrintFab installation package again (without prior uninstallation), then remove and add the printer in PrintFab Toolbox again. Hopefully the settings will be complet...

Re: EcoTank Photo ET-8550

You are right, the L8180 is the same hardware with a different model number for different markets. The L8180 printer will also work with TurboPrint.

Re: Canon iX6820 not printing with all black cartidges

Thank you for the helpful information!

You asked earlier if the fine nozzles are a replacement for lighter application of cyan & magenta (instead of using photo cyan and photo magenta ink) - yes, this is correct.

Hello, I just answered by email and requested a photo of a print that shows the problem. Now I see that you already posted a photo :D . The photo is a bit small so I can only guess.

Re: Layout-Editor

Hallo stephanaust, vielen Dank für die Anfrage, der Layout-Editor ist in dieser Form nur bei PrintFab für Windows vorhanden. Insofern scheint hier auf der Webseite ein Fehler unterlaufen zu sein, ich leite das weiter, dass es korrigiert wird. Ein ähnlicher Layout-Editor ist aber für eine spätere Pri...

Re: Epson SC P900 Dark Colors Are Too Dark

Hello, the difference is subtle and I cannot guarantee that it is worth the effort. Here is the explanation why I recommend 300: The PrintFab printer driver "Epson SureColor SC-P900" internally works in RGB mode. To print maximum deep black the driver must send RGB=0,0,0 to the printer, which PrintF...

Re: Canon iX6820 not printing with all black cartidges

Thank you for the photo. Two cyan and two magenta fields are empty, these are the "fine cyan" and "fine magenta" nozzles, they might be blocked because the pigment in the UV ink is too large for the fine nozzles. You can try to disable Cyan and Magenta of the all black ink set: multiblack-disable-cy...

Re: Epson SC P900 Dark Colors Are Too Dark

Hello Robert, thank you for your feedback. - Ink limit When using the TurboPrint driver "Epson SureColor SC-P900", you should always choose the ink limit 300.
