Hi Brian, unfortunately Nicola was correct in her earlier post, only Signlab versions 5 and later will work with Win XP>. Contact Brian Hays at Impact and he will be able to sort you out an upgrade.

If you use the same PC for mail and Signlab, you should be able to go to Web>send image by e-mail and this will allow you to send images as JPG or PNG direct from signlab e6 without having to export and attach the file. For PDF you need Signlab 7.1 or an additional program to do it for you.

Just to clarify the position with cadlink and Signlab, a replacement dongle (where the original is returned to us) will cost £75.00. Where a dongle is lost or stolen you will have to purchase a replacement package, which we charge as a second site licence at cost -40%. This discount grows to 50% dep...

The way to do this is as follows. Import the image, select it and go to the accuscan tool (Prism in the left column of tools). The second option Image Cut (looks like a triangle covered with a grid). Click this and you should get these choices, None/Image cut, Horizontal/vertical line, Width/Number ...

Hi Marcella, Have had a play with e6 and Corel12, and I'm assuming what works here will work with Corel11/10 etc. The best way of getting all objects intact to Corel is to use the Print and Cut, and have the "Postscript sent" option set to "Output to disk". This will create a PS file which will open...

Are we talking about gerber PLT files or exported (HPGL) PLT files? My understanding is that Signlab e6.1 will import most gerber PLT files. If this is not the case please contact me attaching the offending files and I will see what can be done.

In Illustrator 9, Adobe changed the format of AI to a PDF type of file. This will not import in to Signlab. AI version 8.0 should be OK in Signlab e6. It is worth noting that some work was done to the AI import filter in the later revisions of e6.1, so if you have an earlier revision it would be wor...

To get the gradients out of Signlab e6 you have two choices. The first is to use the Print and Cut with the "Postscript sent" option (Print and Cut Setup) set to "Output to Disk" this will create a PS file which will open in Illustrator (9.0) with gradients. This method is OK if you do not use the p...

Inconsistent Kerning within signlab6

As far as I am aware, the kerning tools in Signlab have not changed since 4.95. If the font kerning is not what you want the best option is the Auto-Kern (ab a b button ) which will kern the letter pairs that are selected, you can change the settings for this by right clicking the button. You can th...

First thing, you should be able to cut from the Signlab demo. It will resize the output so that it is not useable, but it should cut OK for testing. To cut as you wish you will need to set the END POINT in the Plotting Defaults to ORIGIN. (This will make the plotter return to it's start point after ...

Hi Becky, Can't be sure what you've done, but when you print, go to Preferences and change the "Anti Aliasing" from None to either Fine, Medium or Coarse. The range of colours generated improves up to fine. There is a time penalty attached to this though as the fine will take longer to generate the ...
