    Help...

    I'm not sure how long it's been like this, however I just noticed it...
    Its not printing to proper scale.. But only "height" wise. Width prints are correct. Any idea why this might be happening?
    Or how to fix?

    How off is it? Heavy roll or recalibrate settings on printer. Calm down, very fixable. Hailing Artbot?

    You need to do the PF Adjustment. If you have never done the PF Adjustment then the printer probably has always been off scale. This adjustment compensates for how the media is feeding through the printer.

    I do remember doing the PF adjustment, because it was banding otherwise... Was that the incorrect way to fix the banding issue?

    there should be an 'output size compensation' function in your RIP

    If His PF adjustment is off, the best way to correct it is by that recalibrating the page feed. If the PF is correct then the output size compensation should always be at 100%.

    incorrect.

    if my PF is dead on to eliminate banding, but prints are coming out 1/32" long over 2 ft, I need to adjust the output size compensation.

    Yes, i see what you mean. And that is correct. I guess what I meant was the place to start is PF adjust and make sure it's correct before adjusting the compensation. On my 1614 if the PF is correct it'll be with in 1/16" over 8' and I can't complain about that.
