Re: White order at bottom of 13x19 prints for Epson Xp-15000

Hello, which version of PrintFab do you use (PrintFab Toolbox -> pulldown menu "About PrintFab Toolbox")? There was actually a problem in PrintFab 2.94 with a white margin at the page end in borderless mode. I recommend to upgrade to PrintFab 2.95: https://www.zedonet.com/download/printfab/printfab-...

Hello,

yes, this is possible by selecting "Color mode"="Grayscale" in the PrintFab driver options, tab "Color".

You can test functionality with the 30 day trial version which is available on www.turboprint.info -> link "Download". If you tr...

Re: Support for Canon imageprograf Pro-300

Please excuse the late answer.

The next TurboPrint version 2.51 (planned for June) will have printer drivers for Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-4000 and Canon imagePROGRAF TM300, we have no schedule for the Pro-300 driver yet.

Re: What are ink level usage defaults in print dialog, and how can the defaults be set?

Please excuse the delay.

Your UI looks different because you have a different printer. For the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 and other printers with grey inks, there is a "Photo Inks" slider instead of the "Bright Cyan" and "Bright Magenta" sliders.

Re: PrintFab 2.95 with support for macOS 11 Big Sur

This period is normally 6 months or optionally 24 months if you chose this option when purchasing your license. PrintFab 2.91 was released in February 2019, so your license is probably not valid for current ...
