Does anyone know how to shut off all the prepress check boxes that are automatically checked when doing color seps? I have to manually shut them off every time I send color separations to the rip. I would like to do it globally one time.
What RIP is this? Is it a print driver based RIP? What version of Draw and Windows?
First off, we are a screen printing business, using CorelDraw ver 21 and Windows 10 Pro. We print all our separations through Wasatch SoftRip. I send the separated plates to the RIP. The RIP adds the prepress information I need. I do not want nor need them added by Corel. I have to manually turn them off anytime I choose to color separate.
This is all spot colors. Also, I've been using CorelDraw since version 2.0 in 1992. Not a newbie.
Ok so version 21 is version 2019 or are you using version 23, version 2021? If so is it 2021.5?
I haven't used a driver based work flow for nearly 20 years but there used to be a way to save driver presets but it will most likely be version specific.
Ok so you're not fully updated I'm on 22.214.171.1246.
In any case I selected the 2 different postscript drivers I have loaded and did the same tests.
File print, select PS printer, tab through set separations and any other settings I wanted, I returned to the general tab and lower in the dialog there is a print style command button I hit save as and name the style.
If I close the file and reopen the style reflects my setting when called. If I close the application and start a new document the style reflects my choices when called.
Under the tools menu options, global, printing you can set that style as default. If you set your printer as default in Windows you'll always upon selecting print always call that printer and your set style.
I checked for available updates and it says that I'm currently up-to-date. However, the print styles suggestion was exactly what I needed to learn about. The PS printer is not the default printer for any of our work stations but I can save the new print style as the default.
Thank you. This has been bugging me for quite some time.
May the force be with you!
