  • printing issue

    using an EPSON STYLUS photo R1800 on an imac with indesigncs2, preview, and acrobat professional. trying to print out resumes. i printed one fine out earlier today in indesign using teal, black, and grays.

    tonight i got new 28lb white paper, and tried to print out a different resume in indesign with blacks, grays, and browns, and the browns hardly even printed, very very light, grays didnt print at all. so i tried regular computer paper , the same thing, i tried to save as a pdf and print from preview and acrobat, same thing, then i try to print out with just blacknwhite composite and it printed out light, but it did print out.

    i tried to switch the font, same thing. i tried to go back and print out the resume that printed oout fine earlier today, and it didnt print out, only 2 lines and in black, when the rest of the resume is in black and gray and teal.

    i'm confused, lost.

    any help would be much appreciated.

    thank you

    Have you checked whether the printer might just need a nozzle check or cleaning of some sort? Tried printing other files? Sounds like a printer problem, not a software problem, to me.

        Check the cartridges? Do a nozzle check?

          With Epson and Indesign there are at least 2 ways to set how color prints. In fact there are two ways to tell the Epson almost every print command. Too many windows.

          Check both your Indesign settings and the Printer settings in the "Printer" tab on the Print Dialogue box. You may get a warning from InD but ignore it to check that your printer settings aren't weird there.

            I would struggle to get it down to eight genres - I like all kinds of music but I dislike a lot of stuff for various reasons.

            Classical is another list.

            From this list you can...

            Are you set on a laptop? You get so much more for your money with a desktop. And I hate the thought of doing any kind of serious design work on such a tiny screen.

            But it depends on your...

            Right.

            Bulgaria called his fields "checkboxes," and his depiction looks like checkboxes, so I assumed they weren't Radio Buttons, but YES / NO boxes probably should be Radio Buttons...

            I had the same problem when I first started using Acrobat to make interactive forms. For future reference, radio buttons are different and annoying. I think they have to be named within their question...
