  2. Go to the File tab and choose Print Settings.
  3. Choose the printer you want to adjust from the dropdown menu. Click the Advanced Options button on the right.
  4. Once you’re in the Advanced Options menu, a Printer Settings window should appear. By default it might be very minimal; click Show More Details to see more. Change the middle dropdown menu to Printer Features.
  5. This will show all the printer features you can adjust. To get to the color correction and printhead adjustment options, set the Features Set dropdowm to Advanced 1.
  6. Adjust the Colour Correction, Printhead Power (YMC), and Printhead Power (Black Resin) as needed.
