Question about Xante PLATEMAKER 4 Laser Printer

Open Question

We have an xante platemaker 4, if we create a box using Indesign 5.5w x 8.5h and print to the platemaker, the box is 5.437 x 8.5. It seems to be shrinking the box by 1/16". When we print to a standard printer, the box is the actual size. We have checked to make sure all the settings are at 100% but can't find the problem. Please help as we are doing prepress layouts and it has to be the exact size.

Try outputting a pdf of your document. Set up your page from the printer window and print from Acrobat Reader. Also check your network connection if you are on ethernet. AppleTalk work much better in mac osx tiger vintage mini mac. I have not tested all the printer drivers yet on the new mini mac Lion. But there is less of a compatibility issue if you convert your doc to a pdf file. Hope this helps. :-}

SOURCE: Unable to get Xante printer to work

The other option is to use the web page of the xante to print, I do this using mac os 10.4, since it stopped working in the printer menu. Xante support is poor at the very least and sucks at its best.

Screen Setup

Do you mean for screen printing? How many colors? You need to assign specific LPI's, angles and dot type depending what you are trying to print. Your art also might need to be set up better. Can you send link to image and print?

Manual tray feed problem on Xante Platemaker 3 laser printer

You may have to change your settings in the program you're printing from to say "tabloid" instead of the plate size. You basically set everything to make the printer think it's printing 11x17 paper instead of a plate. The only thing I leave the same as a plate is the setting in Quark that says, "Media Type". I leave it on Polyester Plate.

Image enlarging when plating!

hi pip,
check your mac properties, if it is a PC powerchip, you may have to enable "Rosetta" in the indesign applications properties folder.
this may resolve the file print size conversion process.
Rosetta is inbuilt in mac with this type of powerchip, and when activated, works in the background.. this link will give u an insight
not sure this is your answer....cheers rooboy
