A Digital Printing Network
Just trying to figure out how to get the ink consumption to display in versaworks, I'm up to date with it, 4.6.0 so no update issue here. I can manage to see the ink consumption once I Rip the job, I go to Menu View > JobLog and I can see all the info about all the jobs I processed, but not on the preview window ... any idea how can I fix this ?
Thanks a lot!
The only way I know of is to import your design into VW do the set-up and rip, then look at the home page and it shows ink consumption, you don't have to print it just do the rip and delete it if it's only a quote.
Hope that helps.
Sorry I forgot to add it's at the bottom in the grey under "job properties" measured in cc's
Thanks John, I actually know where it's supposed to be, but I cannot see it.
Now, playing around a little I can see it is down there, but my task bar (win7) is blocking the view, if I move the task bar to the side of the screen I can see the ink usage, so I'm guessing it's a screen resolution issue. Gotta tinker with that a bit to see if I can make it work
You can set the taskbar to auto-hide, and it'll only pop up when you put your mouse on the bottom of the screen. Been doing this for years to get a bit more screen real estate.
That's exactly what I do, too, Mike
On laptops, it's the only way to see that whole window.
I must be doing something wrong (right) I have no problem seeing the whole window on my desktop or my laptop? It's a three step window,1.- minimize to tray,2.square,maximize to mid screen,3. two squares stacked,maximize to full window. I can see the whole window on steps two and three. I only use the mid screen option myself, and if you can't see the ink consump, hover over the bottom of the window until the up and down arrow shows and drag the bottom down a bit and it will stay there every time you go to that window.
Just right click on your wallpaper screen and pick screen resolution in win 7 it will say recommended after one of the choices use that one, that'l work.
Thanks for the tips, I've tried different resolutions with no changes, that meaning the ink usage remains hidden.
I know the auto-hide feature is a work around this, but I hate it :D
thanks for your help
Sometimes re-sizing the window works, when VW is open minimize it then maximize it that should re-set it or when it's maximized re-size it by dragging the edges in and it will stay that way
Ink consumption - as stated view, job log, mini window near bottom of screen, expand, and then you can double click any job to see the details of usage by color.
Go to View, see if status bar is checked. Sometimes it will cover the ink consumption info on some computers.
What resolution are you running if the bottom of the screen covers the ink consumption preview?
