    Default coverage calculation

    Hi Alfie,

    This is a good link for that:

    But you have to create a good PDF before you sent the file.
    Look at you printer. HP 5500.
    Use the output profile for the media you want to use and inkt-sceen settings.
    Use Acrobat or Photoshop to create a new PDF with the conversion to this output profile.

    Kind regards
