Printing bitmaps in small chunks

You can determine whether bitmaps are sent to non-PostScript printing devices all at once or in smaller blocks (below 64 K), called chunks. Usually, the driver tells the application which method it can or cannot handle. If you find that bitmaps do not print as expected, try forcing them to be printed in smaller chunks.

If you are already printing bitmaps as chunks, you can specify the degree to which each chunk overlaps adjacent chunks. This overlap reduces the grid pattern that can appear on some printing devices when bitmaps are printed as chunks.
