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!
Would 0.0001 be better (0.01%) ?
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?
Currently when randomization is on, the padding patches are filled with the spacer colors, to try and make sure that there is a reasonable set of patterns. It's easy enough to turn this off and just put in white, which is the case for the non-randomized layout. The thing is though, that these spacer colors will be used as spacers anyway. The ink limit will apply to the spacer color, so using -l 100 will (should ?) currently work. cheers, Graeme Gill.
