Screening Properties

To set the screening properties of a PrintFactory Queue Proceed as follows:
  1. Double-click the PrintFactory Queue of your choice.
  2. Make sure that the correct Queue type is selected.
  3. Click the Screening tab.
  4. For each of the color channels, check and, if necessary, change the:
    • Halftone screen angle
    • Screen frequency (lpi)
    • Dot shape
  5. If you want PrintFactory to smooth (dither) the edges of the printed dots, select Anti-aliased halftones.

To add a channel

Proceed as follows:
  1. Click the Add button.
  2. If necessary, double-click New Channel and rename the channel.
You can give the new channel a generic or a specific name:
  • If you don’t rename the channel and use the generic name “New Channel”, all non-CMYK channels will be screened using the angle, frequency and dot shape settings which you specified for this particular channel.
  • If you use a specific name, for example “Warm Red”, only the non-CMYK channel with that particular name will be screened using the angle, frequency and dot shape settings which you specified for this channel.

3.    If necessary, double-click the color patch next to the channel name and define its display color.
