Here’s my riddle…
I use an EPSON EcoTank 16650 and print directly from Dorico. I printed out all 9 parts of a 20 minute chamber music piece, 3 copies at once. I chose A3 paper and booklet style, both sides automatically.
Everything seemed fine and I started producing the actual booklets when I noticed that I believe 2 of the three copies had the following issue:
One to two pages per part (always on the right side of the booklet) have a blank column in the middle of the page. (See picture)
I tried to make sense out of my observations but I don’t understand with what “logic” these mistakes happen:
Clarinet on page 11 (sheet 3)
Bassoon on page 7 (sheet 3)
Oboe on page 15 and 17 (sheets 3 & 2)
Violin II on page 15 (sheet 1)
Cello on page 9 (sheet 4)
Contrabass on page 7 and 9 (sheets 3 & 2)
I also printed the conductors score in A3 portrait but there were no mistakes so it has to do something with the booklet style.
The column resembles the correct column that is created in the middle of the A3 sheet where the booklet is folded. The correct column measures 3cm the mistake measures about 3,4cm…
Has anyone had this problem? Or ideas why this happens and how I can avoid it?
