Page 72 Setting Job Properties

Advanced Color Mapping Tab
The Advanced Color Mapping tab in the Job Properties dialog allows
you to map the colors in a job to the device-specific process color
values that will be used to output the colors.

See “Using Advanced Color Mapping” page 99 for details.

Adding New Media Types to a Device
The software allows you to add new media types to the list of media
types for a given make and model of output device. The new media type
will only appear for that make and model of device, not for all devices.

To add a new media type:

1. Select a setup for the device you want to create a new media type
for.

2. From the Setup menu, select Default Job Properties.

3. Select the Color Management tab.

4. From the Media Type list, select Add Media.


5. Enter a Name for the new media type. The name can be up to 32

characters long, and may not contain any wild card characters (#, *
or ?).

6. Click OK.

Removing Media Types
To remove a media type that has been added for a certain output device,
select it in the Default Job Properties dialog and click Remove. The
default media types defined by the software cannot be removed.

Setting Ink Split Options
The Ink Split Curve dialog allows you to set the points at which light or
medium colored inks will be used instead of normal “dark” inks. This
provides a greater number of light-colored shades, and reduces banding
in light-colored areas. Ink split is only used when a color mode that
includes light such as CMYKLcLm is selected.

To access the Ink Split Curve dialog:

1. Open either the job properties or default job properties dialogs:

Page 84

Setting Job Properties Page 73

• From the File menu, select Job Properties.

• From the Setup menu, select Default Job Properties.

2. Select the Color Management tab.

3. Click on the Ink Limits button.

4. Click on the Ink Split button.


Each shade of ink is represented by a curve plotted on the chart. The
chart illustrates the amount of each shade of ink that will be output in
order to provide a certain amount of coverage. The range of coverage
that can be specified in the image (0% to 100%) is plotted on the X-axis,
and the corresponding coverage of each shade of ink is plotted on the
Y-axis.

The available settings are:

Channel Select the color channel you want to edit ink split
settings for. Only the color channels that have
multiple shades of ink on the current printer are
listed.

Light Ink Peaks
At

The point on the X-axis at which the light ink curve
peaks.

Maximum Level
of Light Ink

The amount of light ink coverage at the peak of the
light ink curve.

Light Ink Ends At The point on the X-axis where the right side of the
light ink curve hits its minimum value.
