    I asked this in the main forum but didnt get a response. Ive done a couple rasterbations in the last couple of years and my parents asked me to do one for their new theater room. They wanted to do a 1mm size poster and i just cannot get the thing to print on my home printer, i can get it to print anything above 5mm though. ive tried both shrink to printable area and Fit to printable area on the acrobat print setup but when i click print it just hangs and times out. Any ideas?

    How long do you leave it before giving up? Acrobat sucks so give it some time, especially as the data you're sending is probably quite large :dunno:

    I dont give up. I leave it on, the printer takes the paper out of the tray and gets ready to print and says printing on the window but then after a few minutes it just spits the paper back out or prints a bunch of little symbols at the top and it deletes it out of the printer que on the computer.

    yeap it prints other stuff fine, its windows, HP photosmart printer. like ive said ive gotten it to print anything above the 5mm DoT size you can set the rasterbation to do. Maybe its just to big a file for my printer to handle, the acrobat file is 200mb

    Dot size is something you set when your making a rasterbation. 1mm dot size is basically printing it out like a normal picture, when you make the dot sizes bigger you can see them more and it comes out like a pointalism picture.

    This was one i did last year with a dot size of 10

    I love rasterbations but don't have the time or patience to complete one.

    Who doesn't, the problem is that doing that tends not to create nice looking pictures.
