last week we updated to the Designer Version 2019.1.0.57806.
We saw that images and barcodes increases our click costs, because they are printed in color instead of black and white.
Now we used the option “output in grayscales” of the barcode properties.
Testprints in PCL as PS are counted as color.
We only need two sections which are printed in color, all other should be printed in black-white.
Thanks for proposals to solve this problem.
PS: Today I have tested an 100% grayscaled image. This image is in PCL-Output also counted as color-print.
A little update from me:
Output in grayscales does for us not work with jpg and png (CMYK).
Graphic and barcode in SVG and CMYK, the printer count as black-white print (Konica Minolta C368-Series and C754e).
So I am going to change all barcodes and logos to SVG.
Maybe that helps someone else.
