Hi Graeme,

Thank you for your response. I'll give you more information about what
I want to do.

I want to be able to profile 4x6 inch paper (152.4 x 101.6 mm) with
Argyll using the X-Rite DTP20 device.  I am able to do this with the
associated ColorElite software provided with the device.

When I try to create the targets using printtarg, I get the following
error message:

  c:\argyll\printtarg -v -i20 -t -p101.6x152.4  patchfile
  Paper chosen is custom 101.6 x 152.4 mm
  printtarg: Error - Paper size not long enough for target identification row!

I get a similar mesage when I switch the WWWxHHH dimensions.

It appears that printtarg isn't able to to create a target this small
at the current time.  I know the device is capable doing so.  I can
provide a set of images from the colorelite software if you could use
them to diagnose the target identification row for this size.

I prefer to use Argyll to ColorElite.  I sometimes get good deals on
bulk 4x6 papers, and like to give them away.  On these less expensive
papers, I rarely can get an 8x10 that is exactly the same so I can
profile it.

Thanks for considering my request.
