    Trying to print without borders. Went to layout tab but there is no boarderless option. According to the help section there should be one.

    Any ideas on how to print full bleed using Flexi 8.5

    Thanks

    Can't you extend your print past the actual size you need?

    Thanks, I'll try that. I was just trying to avoid cutting anything of the image.

    thats not something you can do with the software, your printer wont print where the wheels are set.

    When you set the paper in your printer, you set the wheels at the edges of the paper to hold it in place, and pull the paper through the printer...The printer will not print within those spaces

    I have a Mutoh Rockhopper. No wheels involved. I'm pretty sure this
    is a Flexi issue.

    It has nothing to do with wheels. It has to do with common sense.

    There's no such thing as printing a full bleed. What then would you do about the ink building up off the media and on the platen? Or the blanket? Or the table? [depending on just how you might be printing]

    Doing a full bleed always involves overprinting and then trimming. Always.

    I'll overprint and trim.

    I'd still like to know why Felxi 8.5 says that the layout tab has a box you can select for full bleed. I went to the layout tab but the box wasn't there.

    Oh well, I'll overprint and trim.

    Thanks all.

    Has word not yet spread to your village that many flatbed printers are being used for full bleed printing?

    Full bleed requires a "spit box" along the whole width of the paper. Take a look at how an Epson 1400 does full bleed printing. You are never going to see that in a large format printer (unless someone designs it after I say this.)

    I don't believe the flat bed printers use full bleed technology, I believe they overprint onto scrap material, which is a cheap way of imitating an Epson 1400.
