  • PolyDraw print question

    I'm fairly new and just started using PolyDraw.... Thank you Dave, Thank you. I do have one print question. If I print on my laser (brother) the pattern comes out very faint but, text comment is perfectly clear and dark. On my HP inkjet I can clearly see the complete object but, it is still much lighter than the text.
    Anyone know of a way to darken image in pdf? Checked through the printer settings and have not found anything there. On the screen the text and object look the same intensity.

    An old beginner leaping in.

    Pleased with my new EX-16.

    I've had the same problem of the pattern being very light. I found a setting on my printer that lets me use more ink, and that helps a little. Sometimes I just use my copier to get the lines darker, or scan it in then darken it using the photo editing program.

    Maybe Dave will see this thread, and can suggest something. It's such a powerful program that it's worth trying to get 100% perfect,

      Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

      He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

      We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
