Cathy, Terrie, and all. Let me first say its gratifying to see so much interest in my article. THe article was for the 1200/750 in Windows only, mention of the Ex/750 was in connection with Kok Leongs Q&A session and in Part 5 (the note). Cathy please don't misrepresent what I said, read the last line, "don't seem to work like previous drivers". BTW. it turns out that PCM "checked" "unchecked" dosn't actually matter. I'm not even going to try and explain, others on this list know precisely what I'm talking about (the real expert(s)) and all will become clear soon, if they have the courage to come out and print the truth about PCM in Photoshop (may be they have and I missed it?). My final word on this list regarding the article. Print using whatever space you feel gives "You" the best results. If thats the setting I suggested, OK, if not still OK by me, but please, please read the title of the article.
