By default the code ignores any patches that match existing patch colors. Currently it's set to a tolerance of 0.001, so yes, with extreme power values there will be values that are regarded as duplicates and will be ignored.
Ah, yes, I see.
It's easy enough to change that tolerance if you think there is any advantage in it.
Hmmmm - maybe the tolerance itself needs to be adjusted according to the power function? I'll experiment when I get a chance and report back!
If I understand what you are talking about, you mean the padding out of a final column with media color or spacer color patches so that they are all the same length ?
Padding out the last column is needed for some devices.
What sort of problems does doing this cause ?
Well, I know this is a pathological case, but when a single channel at 100% is close to saturating the paper, a media colour with 200% TAC does soak the paper. If it were possible to make these patches obey the ink limit specified with -l that would solve my issue - I could then issue "-l100" to the targen command, and such patch values would be scaled so as not to exceed 100% at the printtarg stage?
