To start, here is my current setup:
CorelDRAW 220.127.116.111 64 bit
Windows 10 64 bit
CPU is an Intel Skylake i5 running at 4.4ghz
GeForce GTX 970
The printers I am using currently are:
Epson Photo Stylus 1400 and an HP Laserjet 5000n, the problem occurs on both printers.
This has been happening to me for quite some time and I've tried about everything I can think of (short of downgrading to an older version of Windows/Corel).
I'll attach an image. The film on the left is a bitmap image converted to a black/white bitmap with Vector text above for the work order number, center line, and details.
The image on the right was converted to black and white bitmap, including the text and center mark at the top.
As you can see, the line appears at the top of the bitmap that is being printed. Sometimes it will run down the side of the bitmap, other times the bitmap doesn't take up the entire design as this one does so it will print with randomly placed lines throughout the vector art, usually starting at one edge of the bitmap.
Has anyone else had this issue with bitmaps on Corel? Any idea where I should look next? It's been doing this on and off since I went to Windows 7 in 2009. I've tried about every print driver under the sun for the HP Laser printer, and the Epson just really started doing it when I went to Windows 10.
I've also tried opening the bitmaps in Photopaint to see if there is some mysterious edge showing that I could erase, but I've found nothing.
I can't be the only one with these issues?
bob said:Where is this image coming from? I see text in both and the line sort of looks like an Internet file. Are you placing it in Draw and printing from there? Have you tried printing it directly from an image editor (PP) to see if the line is there that way?Can you attach the original image so I can try it?
The image was sent me to, but this happens with ANY bitmap image in Draw X7 for me. Even if it was a vector converted to a bitmap, it still prints the line. I did just manage to print it from PP and the line was not there so then I tried again in Draw and it came back! I've attached an exported jpeg of the image which is a black/white bitmap in my CDR file.
Here is an EPS and a JPG zipped in a folder.
THanks for any help!!
