Smartform graphic error

Former Member
0 Kudos


I uploaded a color graphic bitmap correctly - 100 DPI and with 'reserve height aut' and 'resides in the printer memory' options checked. I can preview it on the T/SE78.

I created the graphic on the Page1 of the smartform with the same above attributes. However in the print preview of the smartform the graphic looks just like a one-color-square.

Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sonia,

are you sure to have select the radio button to BCOL and not BMON in the Graphic option in the smartforms ?

In the smartform I have BCOL checked, the same name graphic name, Object-Graphis, ID-BMAP and the same resolution (100DPI) as in SE78.

Any more tips? The problem persists.

Use standard programs like Photoshop and create uncompressed TIFF file formats and try to upload it. While saving set standard printer DPI settings ...

It doesn't upload tiff format (on T/SE78)
