i have overcome many obstacles already in getting a really good profile for my printer, but here is one more:

how do i set the number of patches pr. row in printtarg?
i intend to print on A3+ (443x330mm) but printtartg refuses to set more than 21 patches per row.

i do do the following:
Mac-mini-2:prt harry$ printtarg -v -ii1 -T300 -p483x330 HP_A3+

Paper chosen is custom 483.0 x 330.0 mm
Patches = 1664
Test patches per row = 21
Rows per page = 55, patches per page = 1155
Rows in last strip = 25, patches in last row = 5
Total pages needed = 2
Worst case delta E = 59.420309
Optimising layout for strip reader:
After optimisation, worst delta E = 92.941168

if i could get printttarg to use 31 patches per row all would fit on one page. is this possible?

does the deltaE of 93 (last line) indicate that the target is bad?

greets harry
