    We are having two issues on our new 510.

    1: With the margins set to 0 in the plotter, and the default margins in
    acad, the plotted side margins are fine, but the trailing edge is about 3/8"
    short. I have tried changing the Justification in Processing Defaults, with
    no impact thus far.

    2: We have 15" paper in drawer 2, but called 17" because the plotter doesn't
    have a 15" option. The half size plots, on 15"X21" paper as far as AutoCAD
    is concerned, come out rotated 90 and clipped.

    So, can anyone suggest what settings, both Plotter and AutoCAD (and Windows
    Driver?) are required to make 30X42 full and half size plotting work?

    Crossed fingers.

    1.This is about the best that you can do with this size paper, a bit
    of warning with zeroing your margins on this type of equipment is the
    risk of excess contamination to the fuser assembly and failure to
    detack which is when the paper sticks to the fuser and jams. What you
    could do is create a printer for each roll and continue with the
    change in process and justification setup, choose portrait setting and
    plot specified and no rotation.

    2.Again 15 inch can be tough, but not impossible. You have already
    completed the first step by lying to the machine. Again set up the
    justification in the driver as plot specified and again do not rotate.

    Looks like you got a good handle on it.

    Sometimes it seems odd sized rolls (like 11" in my HP 650C) require you to
    tell the plotter your plotting portrait when you want landscape (or vice
    versa - I forget which). Play around with this concept. You might get the 15
    to work.
