Signlab 8s VPM will not print bitmaps

Hi,

I´ve been printing using Signlab 8 Visual Production Manager with a good success for years, but on monday this week I started to have problems.
I can´t print eps, pdf or jpg files. Vector files are ok, but nothing with a bitmap.

I can bring the file to VPM and it has the measures right but the sheet is blank.

What to do?

My Version of Signlab is pretty old (7.1) so not sure if yours will have the same features.

If I go to print - preferences - there's an option to include Bitmaps - this box needs to be checked otherwise bitmaps are ignored. Don't know if this is maybe your issue?

Re: Signlab 8s VPM will not print bitmaps

SL 8 has no "print" section...

I don´t use SL 8 to make the grachics (I use Corel Draw x4) and I normally make them .eps files to print with Visual Production Manager.

These two files that I need to have printed asap are made with InDesign and the VPM will not even generate a preview.

Yesterday evening I found out that I can print some bitmaps but not all...

Could this be a Corel thing??

I imported another .eps file not using Corel and it seems to work.
So, looks like it is a Corel fault.
