FILE: .poster printing MAC See separate file for poster setup. Working with the poster printer and computers in the geo poster room: For the MAC (has CD, zip, and floppy inputs)
I. Opening your poster on the computer: Go toMAC computer with the flat screen in the middle of the room. Load your file.
If you are loading from a server:
................... Click on your folder and enter username and password
Open your file on the computer.
IMMEDIATELY save it on TEMPORARY STUDENT FILES. [ working on it from there is much faster than using the remote server]
II. PRINTING - DRAFT MUST BE THOROUGHLY REVIEWED AND PROOFREAD BEFORE PRINTING, WHICH TAKES ABOUT AN HOUR AND COSTS SOMEONE ABOUT $25. WE CANNOT AFFORD REPRINTING FOR CARELESS MISTAKES. GO TO ROOM 115 ASK Steve Ballou, geo prof, who is expert; or Rama V x2273, also expert all geo students have a key to room
Turning on the poster printer - I recall that the on/off switch is on the rear left hand side of the poster printer. Generally the machine is kept turned off, and it takes a while to warm up. If many people are printing posters the same day, it is probably sensible to leave it turned on if you are sure someone else will be using it within one hour. Otherwise, turn it on about 15 minutes before you will be printing your poster, and turn it off when you have printed your poster, examined it to be sure it is okay. BEFORE YOU PRINT IT, BE SURE IT IS CORRECT AND SET UP CORRECTLY. DO NOT REPRINT IT FOR TRIVIAL MISTAKES. REMEMBER IT COSTS $25! Generally please turn off the expensive poster printing machine as explained in this paragraph.]
1. Open your poster from the computer.
2. Under file, go to Page setup a. SET Paper size > 34x56" b. Orientation > head toward left c. Options- HP Design Jet 2500CP (If not there, go to Recent applications, Print Center, Add HP Design Jet 2500CP, make default).
3. On computer, File Print Print what? Slides. Make sure all options are correct.check size 100%, not 1440% Other options that you may have to select: color, paper size 36x60 even though elsewhere you have said 34x56, but on this option list the closest choice is 36x60, and that works.
4. On the print screen, in the lower left, click on Print Preview. Adobe Acrobat starts and shows what your poster will look like when printed. Check with zoom to be sure it looks correct, especially the right hand edge of your poster.
5. BEFORE ACTUALLY PRINTING, go over to the Printer itself, push the button with the yellow LED (light), and make sure the lighted panel shows "STATUS ready".
6. Now on the computer, click on the print icon on the Status bar of Adobe Acrobat (where you are now).
7. Green light on poster printer starts blinking, says receiving data Hang around to see if it starts printing correctly takes about 20-60 minutes to complete Printer STATUS says receiving data for 5-20 minutes. But usually see something promising a few minutes after it says "printing", and you hear the printing sound. KEEP WATCHING to see the actual printing on the poster begin to appear, to ensure it is properly oriented, If it looks wrong, push Cancel button on poster printer on left edge of controls Then check on computer to be sure page setup setting all are correct. Took us three tries first time we did this.
8. After it is done printing, let it dry for about 10 minutes before handling too hard, so you avoid smearing wet ink. Be sure to close the poster on the desktop, and drag your server and files to the trash before leaving.
9. Turn off the poster printer if you are not certain someone will be printing another poster shortly. See the note before 1.
