    Microsoft Print to PDF driver and difficult documents

    No - they're mostly documents which have been scanned. Paperwork, statements , expert reports, legal authorities, evidence etc. OCR will have been applied but often contains errors - things like scanned artefacts being incorrectly detected as text.. OCR on scanned foreign languages and paper...

    Microsoft Print to PDF driver and difficult documents

    I'd love to send you some files but they're all super confidential evidence so I'm unable to. Optimise or PDF X don't fix it either. I was just wondering if there is a belt and braces - nuke it all option where I could layer steps together to get a similar outcome to reprinting the pdf P.s. -...

    Microsoft Print to PDF driver and difficult documents

    We receive a lot of documents to print which cause errors in Fiery and Total Flow Prep and they refuse to print. Nearly always, reprinting the PDFs using Microsoft Print to PDF gives us a document which we are able to print. So I'm wondering what is happening here and whether/how I can build a...

    How to add a binding margin in Acrobat Pro?

    Can anyone explain to me how I can add a binding margin to a document using preflight in Acrobat Pro? At present I get my make ready software to do this but I wanted to see if I could already do it in Acrobat Pro. Current workflow is: - Multiple documents of various sizes combined into single...

    PDF/JDF - tab issues on Ricoh C5310 from total flow prep

    Folks, I'm trying to switch to using PDF/JDF out of Total Flow Prep instead of using Postscript. Going well except a couple of issues with tabs: - With A4 tabs if I select "Apply settings to PDF and remove from job ticket" the tab then prints totally blank - not just the tab ear but the body...

    Printing Tabs - Straight or Reverse

    If I print them from the bypass tray the printer wants reverse collate. From tray 2 or 3 it's forward collate. Beyond this I don't see how it makes any real difference though

    How to refill a Ricoh X Type staple cartridge

    So I asked the engineer and he said you can't remove the staple cartridge from the holder until all the staples have been used.

    How to refill a Ricoh X Type staple cartridge

    Not really - the staples in the X are enclosed on all sides except the back

    How to refill a Ricoh X Type staple cartridge

    So my printer has been warning about low staples for a while so I thought I'd proactively sort it before I'm on leave. I ordered a replacement staple holder and staples, but I also ordered a box full of just the staples to refill the empty holder to use next time. Problem is, I can't for the...

    Best option for 2:1 & 3:1 punching of covers (small footprint)

    Thanks! I'm aiming to get something cheaper than that, at least the main unit should be under 1k but the accessories etc if required could be more than that.

    Versatile, Reliable, Beginner Press

    Iirc it was a first iteration of a new machine which was plagued with problems. Users and Konica couldn't get them out of service fast enough. With regards to registration, yes, in principle you would expect a production printer to be capable of more accurate registration (once calibrated)...

    Best option for 2:1 & 3:1 punching of covers (small footprint)

    Folks, I'm looking for a machine (as compact as possible) to punch cover stock for wire binding. So, I need: - 2:1 and 3:1 punching (rectangular) - A4 and A5 support (incl. ability to suspend pins not used on A5) - Adjustability to make the punches line up with inner sheets which are punched...

    Fiery missing font issue

    So this looks like a classic example of "problem files" when printing legal documents, which I touched upon in my thread here: https://printplanet.com/threads/suggestions-on-preflight-for-problem-documents-legal-repro.293387/ I will give embedding missing fonts a try next time. Usually I opt...

    Suggestions on preflight for problem documents (legal repro)

    Thank you - that's pretty much what I do when a file won't cooperate. I'm just wondering if I can use preflight to avoid files crapping out on me mid print, but without converting everything to image up front. Also - I once had a document that nothing would work on.. In the end using the...

    Suggestions on preflight for problem documents (legal repro)

    Thanks for your response. I'm not always entirely clear on what the problem is as the files just crap out on me half way through printing and I get a vague error message from CWS. Almost always though the files have one or more of the issues above. Re OCR - I believe the issue is when OCR has...

    Suggestions on preflight for problem documents (legal repro)

    I'd be grateful for any recommendations on use of preflight to help with this scenario: Most of our work is legal reprographics. Printing binders with tabs full of documents from external lawyers. Often CWS will stop printing halfway through a job because it found an error in the document...
