Templates for printing images



  • floyd millar

    Hello, I have had capture one (windows) since version 11 . 
    One persistent issue i have had is that when i save print templates 
    the only thing that appears to be saved is the layout itself , meaning that 
    any custom print profiles , even the associated printer will not be reflected in the 
    saved template.This is the reason i have not been able to move entirely from 
    lightroom as it does this brilliantly even with multiple printers. I am hoping that there
    is something i am missing as i would love to only use capture one. I am told this 
    doesn't happen on Mac .

    Agreed. The template does not seem to save the printer setting. Usage is a bit of a nightmare - you need to configure everything from scratch, as printer, paper size etc is lost. The template should be the first selection option, it should save all printer settings - selection, print quality, paper size etc - and when reopening the dialogue should default to the last settings used. I managed to work through most of the differences to Lightroom, but this basically makes printing completely unusable.

    Agree with the comments above. Also, It should not be impossible to have the Print functionality bypass the MacOS print module and create PDF files (and ideally JPG too) with the desired Print format (borders and all), without having to resort to the MacOS Print to PDF option (which is not batch friendly and does not allow naming the PDF from the printed image filename). Why forcing users to create workarounds with other software?
