I just lost a huge canvas that was almost done because I ran out of LG ink.
I was monitoring this closely, went from 13ml to 6ml then to 0ml. I was frequently updating the status to see a gradual ink decrease, not the case. 2 abrubt steps and I was out of LG ink. I could hear it towards the end, it was trying to pump more ink and pausing and I was saying "come on! just a few more passes!". Anyways, live and learn. Either the printer consumes "shots" of ink or the ink status update is pretty coarse.
HP, you have to fix this somehow so that a large print does not get lost.
What's the rule, any inks below 10ml get changed just to be safe?
Agree completely. I said this many times, it's just something that has to be acceptable. Even if there may be a difference ever so slight in density, the fact is on a big print you don't want to waste it or your time to respool/reprint. Maybe it is something about the spooled file on the hard disc? I don't know but it is unacceptable in this state.
