We released a new version of APFill 6.0, an ink and toner coverage calculation tool.
In this version:
- Added the support of versions from 9.14 to 9.23 (32/64 bit) of the AGPL GhostScript library for working with PDF and PS/EPS files.
- A page with an example of the cost estimation of toner/ink has been added to the standard template for loading the results of a CMYK coverage calculation into MS Excel. If you change the template for a specific printer you will need to enter two parameters for every CMYK cartridge: the price of the cartridge and its resource in 5% pages. Typically the cartridge page yield is determined by the manufacturer in standard 5% pages (ISO/IEC 19752, ISO/IEC 19798), but for some cartridges this can be 6% or 7% (for example, some Xerox cartridges). In this case you also should change the “Cartridge yield % coverage test page” parameter for this cartridge.
