Summary
See a brief description of the new features below:
  • The Save Paper: This feature allows you to economize on the amount of paper that your HP DesignJet printer uses to print your drawings. By enabling one or both of the Auto Rotate or Inked Area settings, you have the possibility to reduce the amount of paper that is used when you print.
    • AutoRotate: The HP DesignJet printer decides at print time which orientation requires the least media for your drawing based on the "roll media" that is loaded.
        note:
      The margins are also rotated.
  • Inked Area: With this feature enabled, the HP DesignJet printer will minimize "white space" in your printout. The HP DesignJet printer will achieve this by moving the drawing without rotating it so that the media it uses will be limited to the minimum necessary to contain the drawing.
  • Zoomsmart is the new scaling feature. This feature is located under the driver properties under the Paper Size tab. It includes "fit to this page," which scales the source page bigger or smaller. The scaled plot will be centered on the page. The Zoomsmart allows you to fit to a standard page size, fit to a custom page size, or use a scale factor percent.
  • Layout View: This feature shows the printable area of the paper chosen under the Paper Size tab, and it also shows the effect of the Zoomsmart by numerical information.
  • Print Preview is located under the Layout View tab. Select the box to preview the drawing before it is plotted. A wire frame version of the print job is shown, and the images or objects are shown in dark. If an error is detected, the job can be cancelled before printing.
  • Disable cutter: This feature is only available for the HP DesignJet 650C, 700, 750C, 750C Plus, and 755CM models. Under the Advanced tab, select the box to disable the cutter after printing.
  • Sharpen Lines enables the printer to use 600 addressable dpi in color. The choices are Automatic, which is for CAD or similar drawings, On which is for CAD or line drawings, and Off which is for images such as CorelDRAW (TM)!
      note:
    The Sharpen Lines feature is only utilized on the HP DesignJet 750C Plus and 755CM B models.
  • Process document in computer. This feature is located under the Advanced tab. It uses the computer's memory rather than the HP DesignJet printer's to rasterize the drawing and then it sends the information to the HP DesignJet printer. This is used when out of memory errors occur from the HP DesignJet printer.
  • Halftoning is located under the Options tab. Select "manual color" or "color as grayscale" and choose Color Control. Scatter, Pattern, and Cluster are the choices. Scatter produces a smooth appearance by randomly distributing the ink. Pattern will give a uniform distribution of ink, much like a geometric pattern. Cluster places dots of ink in clusters to produce complex graphics and documents, which are to be photocopied.
  • Color as grayscale and Convert colors to pure black. Under the Options tab, choose "convert colors to grayscale." Select the Color Control button and then choose the "convert colors to pure black" box if you want a pure black drawing instead of grayscale.
  • Print Quality includes Enhanced/Best which produces the highest print quality but slowest speed, Final/Normal which produces good print quality and the printing speed is faster, and Draft/Fast which provides the fastest printing speed but the lowest quality.
