Adjustment pattern setting dialog box
The adjustment values of the image enclosed in the blue frame in the center are used as the base values, with
images arranged around this with the adjustment values varying in steps up and down from these base values. If
you click any of the images, the adjustment pattern is redisplayed with the adjustment values from that image as
the base values.
The adjustment values are displayed at the top of each image. If both the Horizontal Axis and Vertical Axis are
configured, the adjustment value for the Horizontal Axis is displayed on the right and the adjustment value for the
Vertical Axis is displayed on the left. If the image is so small that the adjustment values cannot be displayed, you
can check the adjustment values by displaying the tool tip.
For images where the adjustment values are out of range, an adjustment pattern is not displayed and the message Out
of Range is displayed instead.
Selects the paper feed method for the paper to print the adjustment pattern on. You can split the usage between
printing adjustment patterns on cut paper (manual feed) and printing work pieces on roll paper.
Use Paper Size
Selects the paper size to print the adjustment pattern on.
The adjustment pattern is printed so that it fits into the selected paper size.
If the image size is large and Dimensions is selected in Pattern Size, the pattern display might not fit within the vertical
direction of the paper size. In this case, select Auto in Pattern Size.
The printed paper size is displayed in Paper Size.
Since the length in the vertical direction may differ between the Use Paper Size and actual printed material, this
displays the actual output paper size.
No Space at Paper Bottom (Conserve Paper)
If a margin appears at the bottom of the paper with the paper size selected in Use Paper Size, you can conserve
paper by selecting this check box to print excluding the margin area. The state of the length in the vertical direction
being shortened to conserve the margin area is reflected in the displayed Paper Size.
Horizontal Axis/Vertical Axis
Configures settings such as the items that change in steps and the number of patterns when multiple adjustment
patterns are arranged horizontally or vertically.
Selects the items to change in steps.
For color, you can select Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Gray Tone, Brightness, Contrast, or Saturation.
For monochrome, you can select X Color Balance, Y Color Balance, Tone, Brightness, Contrast, High-
light, Shadow, or Tint.
The icons for Horizontal Axis Adjustment Item are displayed above the preview area and the icons for Ver-
tical Axis Adjustment Item are displayed on the left of the preview area.
Number of Patterns
You can select the number of images to display in the pattern in the horizontal or vertical direction from 3, 5,
and 7. If the adjustment item is Tone, you can select 3 or 5. When Tone is selected as the adjustment value,
-1 is Soft tone, 0 is Middle tone, 2 is Medium-hard tone, 3 is Hard tone, and 5 is Strong-hard tone.
Adjustment Value Spacing
None can only be selected for Vertical Axis in both color and monochrome.
