Re: Problems with an overlay



fixed

Besides driver's settings keep in mind that you're printing from a PC
application. Sometimes it's better create a PDF and print it using AFP
driver withoutout scalign and autocenter.

there is an IBM doc on color overlays that is very helpful

I'm still on exactly the same InfoPrint driver as I was on from the
first overlay I ever created: Generic InfoPrint 300dpi AFP.

None of this makes any sense.

Photographic dither seems to change the easy-on-the-eyes greenbar
pattern into an eye-popping neon cyan.

Changing the compression to LZW got rid of what had appeared to be
scaling artifact: the type looks clean, and the rules no longer
disappear (the helptext for the driver tells me about settings I can't
find to save my life, including turning compression off completely!)

BUT FOR SOME REASON, THE OVERLAY IS STILL COMING OUT 5% TOO BIG ON THE
PDFS!
