Hi Alberto,

I can confirm this. However, it can depend on what is attached to the
Docutech. The printer itself is only printer. There are various RIPs
that can be connected to this machine. For instance, we have here a CREO
Spire CXP5000 attached to a Docutech 5252. We can accept both RGB and
CMYK files.

I can offer to output one page of each settings (that is, 2 pages), as a
test. You can send me your PDF off list. At least we?ll know it that
makes a difference. If the devels want me to try something else, then
don't hesitate to write.

I hope that helps.

Thanks, Louis, for the proposal, but I wont need it, because they allow me
to do some  test prints for free. But maybe you can help me to understand.
Why it worked the first time and the secon time I had such a bad outcome.
Greettings, Alberto
