Hello, this will be my first question on this forum. We have had a pair of 1000i units in our facility for quite some time. I have noticed that somtimes in the middle of a run I need to adjust something, like registration or which tray to output to. I normally think I have to cancel the job, make the adjustment and restart, but this is cumbersome. What adjustments are available through Fiery or the PCUI while a job is printing on the machine?
You can't change a job live, it RIPS then prints, any change requires that you RIP it again.
If it worked any other way you would introduce the ability to modify a job someone else was printing after they have verified the output and walked away and there would be no record.
I don't know of any brand of RIP or printer that would allow it for that reason alone.
Thanks for the quick reply Joe,
Let me rephrase my question a bit - I fully understand why you wouldn't want to disrupt the rip information being sent to the printer mid stream. My hope more along the lines of settings like changing the output tray (like the input tray) shouldn't affect the rip. I guess they would be options I would like to see in the PCUI (not fiery controller). Can you force the printer to do a Full Width Array adjustment while live? if you see the registration drift out of spec can you adjust that w/o stopping? etc.
