This results in extra costs, since such printers are most productive when printing very large jobs at very high speeds. Will your described method of conversion allow me to do that? Note that the parameters X, Y, W and H allow the poml to control with greater accuracy the original parameter too, which reflected the operation of the selection tool By comparing a given checksum against the checksum of the resource in the cache the printer can check that it has the correct version of the resource.

I hope this helps.
