control over angle and transparency

Posted on | May 29, 2017 | No Comments

Hi

We’re printing checks and as a security measures we’re printing the payee’s name diagonally in the background of the payee and the amount.
Our software knows how to map the parameters coming from the clients ERP (Priority, SAP). What is the correct way to design the check fields so that the name is printed diagonally and some areas are transparent while others are not?
What software would you recommend? our competitors are using PowerPoint.

change text color using PCL5 or 6 command strings

Posted on | March 10, 2017 | No Comments

Hello,

I am trying to change the color from black to red and back to black in order to highlight special instructions. The documentation is very hard to understand. Here is a sample of my code:

PRINT “THIS IS A TEST – NORMAL PRINT”
PRINT
PRINT CHAR(27):”*r3U”: ;* 3 PLANE RGB PALETTE
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v255A”: ;* FIRST COLOR
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v0B”: ;* 2ND COLOR
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v0C”: ;* 3RD COLOR
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v1I”: ;* ASSIGN PALLETE# 1
PRINT CHAR(27):”&p1S”: ;* SELECT PALETTE 1
PRINT “THIS IS A TEST – RED CHARACTERS”
PRINT
PRINT
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v0A”: ;* FIRST COLOR
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v0B”: ;* 2ND COLOR
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v0C”: ;* 3RD COLOR
PRINT CHAR(27):”*v2I”: ;* ASSIGN PALETTE# 2
PRINT CHAR(27):”&p2S”: ;* SELECT PALETTE 2
PRINT “THIS IS A TEST – BACK TO BLACK”
PRINT
PRINT
PRINT CHAR(27):”&p0C”: ;* CLEAR PALETTES
PRINT CHAR(27):”&p1C”: ;* CLEAR PALETTES
PRINT “THIS IS A TEST 1 2 3″
PRINT CHAR(27):”E” ;* RESET

Please point out what I am missing or doing wrong. Thanks, Jeff

merge tiff logo with pcl output

Posted on | October 29, 2016 | No Comments

I have followed the documentation and used IMG2PCL to convert the tiff file to PCL. I then used pcl2pdf to create a pdf file running on Red Hat Linux. The logo looks like a black box but it is in the right place. When I use PCLTool.exe to view the logo pcl file, it looks OK. IMG2PCL is an eval version and has additional words and graphics. Do you have any suggestions as to why the logo is not being displayed properly? Thanks for your help.

PCL to Searchable PDF

Posted on | November 30, 2015 | No Comments

I am in need of a tool that can convert .PCL files to searchable PDF’s. Which, if any, of your tools would accomplish this task? Also, if such tool exists, I would like to test the fully functioning application prior to purchasing; I’ve purchased a few applications already that said they could do what I want, but have been unsuccessful.
