where would a custom swatch be saved, i switched computers but can't find it? ... See MoreSee Less

2 CommentsComment on Facebook

It gets saved wherever you told it to get saved at. It doesn't save by default, though, you would have has to intentionally save the swatch table so that it can be moved.

In the Sai folder there is a folder called swatches. I believe, search for a folder called library it will be a sub folder

If I remember rightly there is a setting with production manager that can be changed and it will export your cut file correctly.

In the RIP and Print menu select eliminate line segment overlap.

I used to have a program called drawings. That could do vector or bmps

Following.

In flexi you can clean and prepare logo in vector mode. If you need finish embroidery you can need pedesign, wilcom, tajima or drawings

Nope. We have a sign and embroidery shop. You need to have it digitized. I sub mine out to www.qdigitizing.com Digitizing is so complex I would highly recommend paying someone else to do it

SHOULD be a feature in current flexi

Very new to flexi.

I’m importing a pdf and any time I resize it and print it does not come out very well. Should I rastorize after importing to flexi? It was created in photoshop so I thought the file would be rastorized alresdy. ... See MoreSee Less

If it's a true pdf you should be able to open it, ungroup it and select any part of it. If you can't then it's not a pdf but a glorified jpeg. If you have the original file for Photoshop then open it in PS and size it to spec and export it as a eps.

If you are looking for scalability you want vector graphics. I don’t believe photoshop has any vector abilities. Try saving your file as large as possible/as you think you might need. Then you will be able to scale smaller but larger will be pixelated.

You need to vectorize it for scalability. Otherwise, try exporting as a PNG. Can you show us the image?

Psd documents are raster not vector so you're not getting a true pdf file. Either create it in illustrator or flexi. And always convert your text to outlines before exporting.

Not a real vector

Is there a shortcut for step and repeat or a way to make a short cut. I use it a lot. I’m previously from Corel draw and just had a box on the sidebar for it ... See MoreSee Less

Just found my own solution… to make a shortcut for any task! youtu.be/MXFiKCESe_I?si=NlNQuqYHpWXAvNsw

Also once you start customizing Flexi, go to the Flexi folder and search for custom.(upc). Not sure what the extension is guessing here, save this file some where and note where it is in the directory, if for any reason you need to reinstall Flexi (yeah that never happens) you can drop your custom settings back in, because Flexi doesn't save them

I just use the step and repeat option found under the “view” tab, maybe “edit”… it’s second to the bottom. Took me forever to find - but since finding it, has made life a million times easier. I don’t know a shortcut for it, I just use the dropdown box… Good luck!

It has gotten bad with production manager "not responding" I have also started getting a fatal error in design and having to restart

Are you running more then one printer on the same production manager? We run 2 HP latex 365’s and after multiple crashes, not responding etc etc.. tech supports final answer was to move 1 printer to another license and another computer. After doing that it finally solved all of our issues.

I’ve been having trouble too.. when I click “send” it doesn’t respond.. so I click again and then it cuts 2. Ugh

Uninstall flexi and then re install it. Also, there use to be a issue with 64 vs 32 bit. Check that out as well

Yes there are a few options. Duplicate the circle, in your fill and stoke editor. Change to gradient make your gradient either black on one side and transparent on the other. Or black and the blue color in the design. Choose the radial gradient patern option. Set the opacity and change it to a multiply or darken effect in the layers.

Is that a clear case?

What causes my computers to damn near die on step and repeat contours?

Everyone has unique computers. It's something that the Flexi folks cannot control and therefore the performance is different on every system. But as suggested by Anthony Perez a better system helps a great deal. Yep, overdoing it helps, not just with Flexi but with everything we do, Adobe, the internet, etc. A good investment since we depend on it for everything.

My current build I run this graphics card with 32gb of ram. I do things in Flexi that I was not able to do years ago.

It’ll do goofy stuff like that, especially if you have outlines or drop shadows. Is it all vector images or do you have rasterized images & assets masked within the layout? I’ve gotten in the habit of just duplicating the layout or design, convert it to outlines & more times than not fixes or an easy workaround. It’s a glitchy software, tons a positive things about it, a few hiccups. Hopefully that works or helps.

Make sure they aren’t LAB colours. Make them CMYK or RGB.

Mine is doing this also. My colors are rgb and cmyk. I can’t figure it out.

PLEASE PLEASE post the file, I want to investigate. Also what version of Flexi, what build?

When I export files as a .pdf everything goes red All RBG and CMYK files Now I copy shrink and export as .eps then convert to.pdf Happens with all files daily PITA

Been investigating and we need to make sure you’re on the latest build. Then try again.

New ish by a few years to having a eco solvent printer. Even newer to doing the print and laminate for wraps.

Do you panel the prints yourself or use the production manager to do the splitting? Adding a 1" over print I've been manually doing it, but the last few runs I have mistakenly double printed some panels and or forgot to print some. I do the mockup on a template using masking. But at the end it's just a rectangle like most wrap designs are done.Thanks in advance ... See MoreSee Less

2 CommentsComment on Facebook

Use the paneling tab when you go to print. It makes it way too easy. Be sure to save the file after you get the panels set up and if needed in the future, you can go back and reprint a panel and won’t have to worry about setting it back up.

Mask in Flexi, or, PS, not production manager. Production manager isn't t really meant for panelling vehicle wraps.

Why would my hp latex 365 printer not print the actual size that it’s suppose too ? ... See MoreSee Less

8 CommentsComment on Facebook

Did the scale in the production manager change? This happened to me once.

To much heat? Media tension? Another profile may help. You could also try the "media lenght compensation in Pr.Man. ( flexi 22 )

Lots of reasons a HP Latex would print the wrong size, heat being the key one. Some good suggestions on here already, can you tell us what size issues you have which direction and how much.

I get that to. Do my dimentions but the size changes when i send it to print

It is changing up and down, about over an inch bigger. Across is correct And what puzzles me the most is the inconsistency. Sometimes it prints accurate and sometimes it doesn’t. I was wondering if something could be wrong with the printer internally.

My OMAS was disabled(it wasn’t highlighted blue) could this be an issue.

When I enabled my OMAS and put it on the take up real my prints are printing the accurate size and the clarity is sharp.

You need to build it as a vector. That is why you are losing quality.

This very much just looks like a low quality bitmap. You'll probably need to rebuild the file from scratch as vectors to get rid of the pixelation.

if you need help rebuilding the file message me and I would be happy to help.

To me it looks like a media feed problem, the beginning & end of the letters are the issue but the horizontal parts are where the bad areas are look at the E especially if it was from a low resolution bitmap all edges would be pixilated

Looks like a low resolution bitmap that was resampled causing edge effect.
