    yes...I changed snt to snx because program checks this registry entry at startup and doesn't run if present

    Some functions are limited

    I just found out a limiation of the license. InkSaver module is only licensed to Category 1 printers. In particular, it doesn't work with ColorGATE Color Optimizer, almost all UV printers and grand-format printers. As it stated on website:
    Cat1 (internationally marketed solvent, eco-solvent, latex and water-based printers with an output width of up to approx. 2.5 m)

    mmm...you are right...
    try this license...it should be work... (but RIP and queue are "only" 10):
    Code:

    Yeap, it's better now. Thank you, cooling!
    10 RIP/queues are quite sufficient amount... in other case CG can be launched on another PC with the same license (+10 RIPs/queues).

    BTW,
    ColorGATE uses CrossXColor library for any color/icc computations, including printer linearization (so called, colorimetric linearization) and InkSaving. CrossXColor is OEM solution from ColorLogic. So I decided to compare the results between ZePrA InkSaving and ColorGATE InkSaver module.
    Unfortunately, the result of ColorGATE InkSaver with "Max" settings is noticeably less stronger than the result of ZePrA InkSaving with "SaveMaximum" settings.
    So, for stronger ink saving it's advisable to use ZePrA or any other color server (e.g. Alwan ColorHUB).

    Question regarding the using of CG

    Does anyone know how to instruct ColorGATE to place only 1 page of multi-page PDF on a print sheet (flatbed printer)?
    By default, CG tries to fill in the printable area using all the available pages. This functionality is not desirable in the case of "face" and "back" pages of the same PDF file (e.g. if I need to print them on both sides of a print sheet).
    I have found two workarounds:
    1. to split pdf before importing into CG,
    2. to use a container with fixed size that is equal to the size of the page.
    I am wondering is there any other way to instruct CG to place only one page on a print sheet?
    Cheers,
    CW

    in print settings you can specify which page of a multipage pdf has to be printed and how many copies you want in the printing sheet.

    if you set both parameters to 1 you will only get 1 page printed.

    Hi hoping you can help,

    When you say clean install, can that be an upgrade from windows 8 to windows 10?? or do you mean a completely new iso install??

    Thanks!!!

    If you want to get a really predictable color result, don't waste your time and money but build the icc profile that reflects the behavior of your printer on your material using the same inks (original or third-party inks) and the print mode suits your requirements.
    Theoretically, you have to build the icc profile for every combination of the printer-material-inks-print_mode. In my practice it's true, but in rare cases, such as when changing the print mode, you do not necessarily need to build a new profile.
    If you can't build an icc profile by yourself, then find a color specialist close to you.

    The basic standard adjustments should fit in with my material, which provides ColorGATE in .zip for my printer... sorry my english!

    Yes, you are right. Re-calibration makes it possible to bring the printer behavior to a known condition (stored in MIM). But it doesn't guarantee that the result will satisfy your expectations.
    Re-calibration is not intended to compensate for differences in ink hues and the "color" of the material, so you should be aware that the inks and the material for which the profile was built, are similar to yours. That's why I recommend to build the icc profile for the your combination of printer-inks-material-print_mode.

    Ok, thanks, and you have the MIM for my plotter?
