Harlequin Rip Avantra 44


Active member
We have been trying a harlequin rip 10.1 to run our Avantra 44
and is not an easy transition. We were running Agfa pdf rip before.

We print from Indesign and Illustrator and have to have to different set up, what we do on Indesign for Neg and Pos is totally opposite in Illustrator.

Also what Indesign shows as Width and lenght is reversed on Rip

If anyone can shed some light is much appreciated!
