Estimating the ink a job will use


Enables an estimate to be made of the quantity of ink needed for a printing job
from any program or DTP package which uses the standard printer drivers.
Requires a copy of David Pillings !Sprinter from his website.
The program shows the percentages of Cyan, Magneta, Yellow and Black
which will be used - and based on the printer manufacturers information,

which is usually expressed as pages which can be printed from a cartridge at 5% of colour,

the ink usage for a given job can be easily estimated

RISCOS 4 Compatibility

We are very happy to confirm that all our latest versions of software run correctly on RISCOS 4/Select and also on StrongArm Processors. One very small change is needed in !LjDuplex Professional - this will be done FOC if you send us a copy of your `choicefile' from the !LjDuplex directory on disk or by e-mail. This strengthens our belief that we should follow RISCOS standards in both program design and user interfaces.

Today we produce software for the latest RISC OS Machines much of which is also used `In House' in the production of a local Parish and Community Magazine `The Dever'. We do not offer any software unless we ourselves have found it to be cost-effective. We are committed to the RISCOS range of machines because we believe that they are second-to-none in technological innovation point the way the industry will need to go in the 21st Century. The advent of the StrongArm Processors and now RISCOS 4 confirms our faith in RISCOS technology.

Mijas Software is run by John Evans, whose interests include the history of computing, the simulation of control systems, music, art and the local Parish Church.
