Re: Cobb County Offsets?

Don, create a custom form size that encompasses the 18" ballot.  In Ghostview, click on Media, then User Defined.  Type 800 in the Width Input window (expressed in 1/72") and then 1600 in the Height Input field.  You form will then be big enough.

Nell: aren"t there some changes that have to be entered to customize ghostview for viewing an 18 in ballot. I don't remember offhand, but will check. From her note it is a problem of viewing in Ghostview. Is that how you see it?
Thanks: Don

John, print 18" ballot artwork with Global's approved Linotronic driver electronically to 11 x 22" stock.  Make sure you customize the form size in Ghostview to at least 11 x 22", this way you will be able to properly view the entire ballot.

Please take a look at the following and see what advice we can give to this
account.    Thanks, John

I have "printed" my ballots to disk in preparation for sending them to
Doubleday.  When I look at them in GhostView, the ballot is very far down at
the bottom of the page.  I can see all of the text, but I cannot see timing
marks, cut marks, etc.  Nor can I see the "card number and sequence number".
This makes me think that the offsets need to be changed, but I have used the
defaults, which I thought should work.  It would be very helpful if someone
can tell me the proper offsets to use for an 18" ballot.  (Or if there is
some other problem.)  I sure appreciate your help!
