To print without borders, in the Paper Options task, place a tick for Borderless Printing. If the roll paper width is different from the poster width, select Fit Long Side to Roll Width or Fit Short Side to Roll Width. Note that borderless printing is available on specified roll widths and is not available for cut sheets.
Ambient light colour and brightness vary due to environmental factors such as location (indoors or outdoors) or lighting (fluorescent or incandescent). Therefore the same poster may look different depending on where it is displayed.
The ambient light setting functions allow you to adjust colours automatically according to the environment so that the created poster’s colour tone looks appropriate for the lighting arrangement used for viewing.
