It used to be that the printer would handle making the number of copies one needed from its own memory.
You send the job with the number of copies and the computer would send one copy of the job with the number of copies the printer would need to make. Printer manages making the number of copies.
I cannot duplicate this in Photoshop CS3. Each copy is sent to the printer individually from the print spool. On larger jobs, 40mb+, the printer stops and waits for the data to be resent from the computer each time. This slows down my HP3600n to less than 4 ppm color. (Ouch! on large deadline dependent jobs)
The problem does not appear to be memory size dependent as it does it on jobs smaller than 64mb (the printer installed ram size)
Is there a setting that I am missing to change the copy management from XP to the Printer?
