Your advice was GREAT! It did exactly what I hoped it would. Thanks, bean66. Shortly after enjoying this success, I sent out an email to tell my coworkers the following:
I was able to add a mark to every one of our plates. The mark includes the following information:
Press Gain Actual
Press Gain Desired (Curve)
This information will begin to appear on all plates subsequently plated from this point forward. The mark appears 1/4” from the left edge of the plate (with gripper at bottom). Here is an example of what the mark will look like:
“Plotted at: Jan23 11:55:07 2014 TIFS-2400_175-22-Cyan ML: UltimaCoRes175Line111413 PGA: None PGD: ManRoland_G71614_CCLB_C.oli”
My only complaint is that there is no way to change the size of the type on the mark. It prints on the plate in roughly 6pt type, but at least you're able to specify how far from the edge of the plate that it prints! I'm stoked just to have found a way to include this information. Thanks for the advice again. I love this forum!
