    I have a wrap design that is 278 inches. When i import pdf or jpeg in to versa works it cuts length to only 200 inches. How do I fix this?[​IMG]

    You may have to scale it down to 50% before you save the file then scale it up 200% in VersaWorks.

    The problem is with the .PDF and not Versaworks. If you open the .PDF and hover the mouse around the bottom left hand corner the document size will appear and it will read 200"x 33.5".

    Downsize the file and republish to .PDF or just go with .EPS

    But if I downsize the file the design will be smaller correct?

    Which is why you would scale it back up to 200% in the RIP.

    Is it raster? If so save as a tiff. Will print fine.

    200 inches is the standard limit for PDF files. Apparently Corel ignores these standards, making it easy to create PDF files that are incompatible with other software, such as VersaWorks.

    I've had this issue with PDF's in Versaworks. I do a lot of box truck wraps and they're usually about 300" wide. Now if I have a PDF, I bring into photoshop and flatten the file and save as a TIF. Shouldn't have an issue after that.

    I think the problem is that the PDF actually holds a lot more than what is visible and it puts it way out of bounds for versaworks acceptance.
