Plot queue setting for Konica/Minolta

Plot queue setting for Konica/Minolta

Plot queue setting for Konica/Minolta

Hey guys,

  Im plotting to a Konica/Minolta C350 printer. Using the queue below I can get 8.5x11 plots but I cant seem to get it to switch to the 11x17 tray for larger plots. Any suggestions on how to tweak the settings to get 11x17 output??? BTW this machine doesnt seem to like postscript.

RE: Plot queue setting for Konica/Minolta

You need to create a second plot queue that specifies the proper paper size. On the plotter switches line, add a /17.

UG, prior to NX3, doesn't support multiple paper sizes in a single plot queue. Since NX3 uses different plotting software, I don't know what it does.

"Fixed in the next release" should replace "Product First" as the PTC slogan.
