    Is there a way to add more or customize these? I'm talking about the handful of generic presets you choose from when loading substrates on the machine. Maybe I'm missing it on HP's labyrinth of a website.

    Not that I have seen.

    All the profiling and temp stuff happens with your RIP though so its just a basic settings selection for the printer. Biggest thing I noticed is whether or not the Form Feed and Cut works, i.e., it doesn't with banner.

    I have a preset for Vinyl, Banner and Paper. It's definately a good idea to have preset substrates for your common materials, then if you have one thats a little different you can just pick the closest and edit it for the single print job. Of course, I guess this would all depend on what RIP you were using, I am just using the Flexi for the HPL25500.

    Not that I have seen either, and I wish they let you make your own custom ones.

    The reason I hate this is when I am doing my accounting features, it goes off the presets. Well of course I am going to have more than one self adhesive so no doubt the price will be different. Really takes away from that feature on the EWS.

    I understand having a limited list, but especially with vinyl having two options would of been nice.

    Exactly. I use the length tracking for my medias, so it would be great to have options for gloss, matte, 3m...etc instead of "self-adhesive"

    The link below is from HP, but hosted on 3M's website. its the new media creation guide that came with the L25500. Its one of the many things most people jsut throw away or in a drawer and forget about :)

    http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/mediawebserver?mwsId=ppppp6SXhA1Q37RrlvRC478YCTSOCASXeTqpCTqpCpppppp--

    while it mentions creating media families, i can't find anywhere that says how to do it. apparently you can download media families and install new ones via the EWS, but I can't find the method to do the initial creation. maybe you could download an existing one off the EWS and look at the file and see if you can manually change it?

    I record the length on the roll when I unload it. Knowing how much media I have left has been a nice improvement over our JV3.
