From what I've read... seems good when printing from the roll, BUT
Is it easy to load precut sheets?
- 24"x 36" (D in the U.S.)
- 18"x24" (C)
- 11"x17" (B)

Do you have to remove the roll to do it?
I assume there is no way to load multiple sheets of B size. Yes?

Thanks for any input.

We have this printer, it is best used with the roll. It can print on sigle sheets (we used it that way when our Epson A3 printer broke down) you dont have to remove the roll for sheet printing, however you have to load each sheet individualy, and press release lever, once it is done. Basically you have to be standing beside babysiting it. It is okay if you need just few sheets, or in emergency, but not for regular use.

Good to know it's not impossible.
Thank you Skawagon

Have you found a work-a-round to bypass the forced, 0.91" margin on the right side of cut sheets?

We have recently got a iPF770 (pretty much the same machine) and I seem to recall from the user instruction that you can't print as far to the edge on single sheets as you can from the roll.

I don't know 100% for sure, as we don't intend to use it for anything other than printing from roll, so it went in one ear and out the other, but this does ring a bell.

From what I've learned. Pretty much stuck with the 23mm on the right margin.
I was hoping I could rotate the sheet to feed from the opposite direction
(Print the title block first, therefore forcing the 23mm margin to the binding edge of the drawing).
My work-a-round was to copy the layouts/master and rotate them upside down.

Off topic.
I like your avatar Erwin.
Always think of you as "Outstanding in your field".
Only... you're laying down :D

I think you can do some rotation stuff in the printer settings before sending out the job to printer, meaning you won't have to do that in ArchiCAD.

As for the profile pic, thanks, my wife (though not at the time of the photo) took it on our first holiday together (Black Mountains in Wales).

When wanting the larger margin on the binding edge, I have used Print > Layout > Reverse page orientation. This works for 11x17 sheets on a HP DesignJet T120.

That's it !
And I thought I looked at EVERY setting. Glad I posted the query.
Thank you David (& Erwin).
