    Print Driver User Guide

    User Authentication If the print server is configured to require user authentication for printing, you must enter your user name and password when you print using Driver. The login can be your network domain/user name or a local user name. Check with your system administrator about the requirements for your system. This section is normally administered on the server by IT departments.

This needs to be switched on in Command WorkStation, ColorWise Pro tools, Color Setup, click into Control Bar Tab, tick box. It will print every document with this Control Bar on it until you switch it off again.

    Postflight Postflight is the process of analyzing processed files PostScript, PDF, DCS2, and others for quality control in a digital prepress workflow. It is a perceptive utility letting operators troubleshoot previous problems with the colour of a printed job or they may choose to use it as a preventative measure. Either way, the original document may be printed (or RIPped and previewed) with all objects (graphics and text) colour-coded. The report gives explanation about what colour spaces are utilized in the job and what ppd options affect those spaces. The report also gives information about the printing environment such as calibration date & time and calibration method. A test page may also be printed in order to verify the printing environment.

    Progressives Progressives refers to printing variations of a multi-colour document, where pages are printed using one to all, the available colours in a printer: C, C+M, C+M+Y, and any combination. The ability to print the various states permits the user to inspect the result of each pass for a four colour document. The progressives function is designed to show the separations used by their job on an imagePRESS-driven device, helping operators to determine where a specific problem is occurring within the original file.
