  1. espson r1800 VS alps md

    Your comparing apples to oranges here... the epson is an inkjet and the alps uses a resin ribbon.
  2. Corel Draw 12 Problems

    haha... don't get your panties in a bunch! I am very good with computers and yes I did spend a few years as a PC technician for a large local corporation at one time, but never claimed to be "the ultimate computer guru". My statements were more of an overall observation of average users...
  3. Corel Draw 12 Problems

    Nope... Just did that as well niner. Seemed to work just fine. Have no ideas what to tell you to try and fix that... ?
  4. Corel Draw 12 Problems

    Sorry niner... Just did what your having problems with, works just fine. Actually, I bet I do that sequence of actions quite often. More often than not, a lot of software problems are not always because of "bad" programming, but what I call a "dirty" system. If your the type of user...
  5. Corel 12 copy/paste issues

    To copy and paste between flexi and corel does not work very well at all any more. I think it has do with how each program writes the metafile data to the clipboard. While I can copy from corel to flexi with some messing around, I cannot copy from flexi to corel. Eps is another matter and...
  6. Selecting in corel

    hold down the alt key while dragging.
  7. In need of rocks

    Start with Chicken wire + Paper mache' (just use flour and water for the glue) + a few quart cans of flat latex paint - earth tone, browns / greys + be creative. google "paper mache", you'll get lots of info. If it's just temporary... it would work just fine. Once it's all painted, it...
  8. Been Meaning To ? This

    if you have "type assist" turned on and common fractions (ie 1/4, 1/2, 3/4...) are within the type face your using, corel will automatically convert them to that character.
  9. Photo Print Question.

    We have a mimaki but use PhotoPrint DX. PhotoPrint has very few tools to actually do design work within. We mostly use it as a bridge between corelDraw and paint shop pro to the mimaki. Profiles are numerous, any profile for any current flexi product will work. We have found very acurate...

  12. Helvetica font, is there an EXACT match?

    Hi Puck, The "oldest" forms of helvetica, that I know of, and that you may want to look into are from Letraset and Linotype. These companies have been around since BC. of course you have to buy them... they can be found at myfonts.com
  13. Contour cut through material?

    I have the mimaki that will do that... in their terms, to cut thru the vinyl and the backing, is called a "half cut procedure". What it actually does is cut the vinyl like normal but will also pierce the backer and make perferations that allow you to tear the decal and backer away. My...
  14. Does anyone else HATE Corel 12?

    No real problems here with 12... I have had crashed it a few times, but only when I'm really pushing it. I hardly ever turn my design station off and coreldraw is running most of the time, along with flexi photoprint dx and paint shop pro. Keeping your fonts under control using the bitsteam...
  15. Suggestions Please

    Stu, I never had one of those roland printers that use the cartridges, but I had heard enough "I hate it" stories to never want one. The gerber edge is a better machine, and basically prints the same way. But you are limited to the 12" wide print area. You can find them for under 4k, but...
  16. Software Rip for Encad 24

    Hi Stacy, Future RIP is the cheapest I've seen. Pjannto RIP is actually $725 in US dollars. Have you tried any ICC profiles for the windows print driver? I did a little looking around and you can download some here... Windows Driver ICC Color Profiles Will adobe let you rasterize when...
  17. Monitor?

    Dual monitors are the best... I have my work station set up with two 21" crt's that run at 1600x1200. but I also have one of the crt's (and mouse and kb) hooked in to a 4-way kvm for the three pc's that sit under my desk.
  18. Roland & ONLY Corel??...

    goto radio shack or online and get a null modem adaptor or cable. A lot of your problem could be in trying to use the parrellel port.
  19. Roland & ONLY Corel??...

    I will assume that your plotter is hooked up thru a serial port. If so try the following. Goto the "control panel" and open the "system properties", Click on the "hardware" tab" and then "device manager", Scroll down thru until you find "ports" and expand that part of the tree, double click...
  20. Any Users of corel 13 (x3) yet

    OK, here's one that has always made me crazy in every other version of corel... did they change it yet? Draw a rectangle, then change the size of that rectangle. Now if you try to round the corners of the new rectangle, the corners are not in proportion to the new size, but still to the...
