v14.6 PCL Tools HotDirZ64 stops processing

Posted on | September 6, 2017 | No Comments

Has anyone seen where HotDirZ64 will just stop processing PCL reports until which time it is shut down and restarted?

Server is Windows 2012 R2 and PCL Tools v14.6.

I will be opening a ticket on this BUT wanted to ask the question here as well.

PCL Image creation

Posted on | September 6, 2017 | No Comments

Hello,
I’ve taken over a position as system admin from a previous employee and I don’t have any documentation on a particular part of the process where we create these pcl files that from what I can tell raster images, and they are inserted into the print job via script on the linux server.
I’m happy to pay for some assistance in creating a new version of the file, and have someone show me a method which I can use to recreate this. Not sure who to turn to, your product seems like it could do the job, I just need some advice before I purchase it. Thanks for your help.

Do you have a utility to convert True Type fonts to HP PCL soft fonts in a SFP format? If so, how much is it. I create custom fonts for people.

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
