Texjet RIP v7 Software Operation
New Worktable (CTRL + N)
This command allows opening a new workspace (keeping the current workspace for future use), if open, and beginning a new job. A workspace is an area defined by the user, usually equal to the platen present in the printer, onto which it is possible to arrange various images at the required dimensions according to the desired layout or with the aim of optimizing the space. Space optimization may be performed manually or automatically from the positioning menu.
Open Image (CTRL + O)
The open command opens a file (in one of the supported graphics formats) and displays it in the main Texjet RIP window, where it may be worked on prior to being sent for printing by itself or together with other files or saved in another format or resolution. It is possible to open more than one file simultaneously by selecting them using the open window, or by directly dragging and drop- ping them onto the program interface.
Recover an exported workspace including images and/or the settings used from the list. If some images are missing, this is pointed out and the option to continue opening the others is given. If the file to open is not visible to open, check that encrypted dev documents (*.zdv) is selected.
Save the current workspace to subsequently recover the settings used, also reloading all the images (clearly only if the path of the image has not been removed in the meantime).
The saved worktables can be found later under print report, under the saved tab.
Export a workspace including images with the settings used from the list and its options and positions. Give a name and save it as encrypted Job Document (*.zdv)
This command allows clearing the current workspace for beginning a new job.
This command allows closing the current workspace (prompting with the option to archive for future use).
Print Worktable (CTRL + P)
Each image placed on the worktable is handled autonomously in terms of color corrections, dimensions, and position until the print window is accessed at which point they are treated as if they were a single image.
Select one of the below:
Print: It sends the job to RIP and to print without keeping any print data.
Archive: It sends the job to RIP and archives the print data.
Compute: It sends the job to RIP without keeping any print data.
Print & end: It sends the job to RIP, waiting for the RIP procedure to finish and then to print without keeping any print data.
Print & Archive: It sends the job to RIP and to print keeping archived the print data.
Under the cost Tab and you can get an estimation of ink consumption and cost for the printed job.
