Abstract

In an electronic reprographidprinting product, Grid is a feature available to the operator which provides feedback when positioning objects, images, files, etc. onto a displayed representation of an image, document, scratch page or any sort of displayed representation. Historically, print shops utilize Grid sheets (usually Mylar semi-transparent) for mechanical placement of images prior to photographic imaging of the entire sheet. The grids used are industry standard and are available in inches, metrics or picas.

In an electronic reprographidprinting product, Grid is a feature available to the operator which provides feedback when positioning objects, images, files, etc. onto a displayed representation of an image, document, scratch page or any sort of displayed representation. Historically, print shops utilize Grid sheets (usually Mylar semi-transparent) for mechanical placement of images prior to photographic imaging of the entire sheet. The grids used are industry standard and are available in inches, metrics or picas.

Grid is available in electronic reprographic/printing products in the Edit mode of the operator dialog. Edit mode is the portion of the dialog where an operator can build a new document or page, or edit images contained within an already existing document or page. Therefore, placement and/or alignment of images may be very critical to the operatcr. When an operator desires to view a grid, the operator only needs to select &id from a menu of options and the grid will appear on the page frame being displayed. Grid in Electronic ReprographicPrinting products provides the same grid options as available in print shops, except in an electronic display format.
