    Im running Flexi 8.5. Is there a way to print on a home/office printer with registration marks? When I click to print the registration marks do not show, but will show for my large format printer. Is there an option to turn this on?

    Because your office printer does not support the registration mark.

    Wouldn't the registration mark be through the RIP software not the printer?

    Comes via RIP software and printer can not read. Printer does not have this function.

    Most plotters will allow you to manually create a registration mark in your design software. I'm not sure which model plotter you are using but you should be able to look up the mark specs and create them in your design software. Then you just add them to the file and print like normal and cut form your cutting software. It's not as ideal as having Flexi to do it all for you but it should work.

    I run corel and onyx, with corel making reg marks and onyx never knowing a thing, seems to work much better for my setup. In any case I'd reckon it depends on what software you are using.

    My question is why you would want to do such a thing?

    Do you have the option to print to a pdf, and see if the reg marks would appear there? Then you could print that pdf instead of using your rip to print the file.
