I am desperately trying to print a transparency on my Canon ix6800 that has halftones. Nothing seems to work. Is it an art side problem, printer problem, software problem? I just don't know. Has anyone had any success printing halftones on this machine and how do you do it, what settings are you using?

I'm on a Mac. Usually outputting straight from Adobe Illustrator. Tried making PDFs but when I print them they refuse to print as anything other than 8.5"x11". The half tones don't come out either. Seems like there should be a simple solution without having to purchase $800 RIP program for a $125 printer.

Probably, best to use photoshop and convert the color(s) to Bitmap and use halftone value you prefer. This will create your halftones as an image and will print from any printer with no rip software. There are plenty of how to videos on this, or reach out and I can give you more detailed info.
