For information on printing sample documents, refer • The Guide to Configuring and Managing the System, if using the command line interface •...
Optimizing print quality Product features that affect PostScript print quality You can improve the appearance of your documents by being aware of potential problems created through the use of proprietary PostScript extensions and device-dependent operators. Proprietary PostScript extensions PostScript masters that use proprietary printer features may cause appearance inconsistencies between different PostScript printers.
The PostScript language provides a scheme for overwriting the internal transfer function of a printing device by providing the settransfer and setcolortransfer operators. However, some Xerox PostScript devices do not allow you to overwrite their internal transfer function. Typically, a master tries to replace the internal transfer function...
Optimizing print quality If either of the above procedures is successful, the transfer functions return the same color levels that are passed to them without modifying or mapping the level. On printers which do not allow the overwriting of the transfer function, the settransfer operator does not affect the mapping of gray values between the output of the print device and specified levels of color.
Optimizing print quality Sections 2.2 and 6.5 of the PostScript Language Reference Manual , second edition, discuss scan conversion. Section 6.5 states that scan conversion details are not part of the PostScript standard. Troubleshooting Guide...
