Information about PIF DESIGNER Ver.2.16 (Windows version) 
Thank you for using Epson products.

This file contains new information not found in the manual.

PIF DESIGNER 2.1 User Manual (electronic manual).
For viewing the User Manual, we recommend using Internet Explorer 4.01 or

[Changing, Moving or Deleting Frame File Forbidden during Editing]
Since PIF DESIGNER uses and saves information in the open frame file, do not 
change, move or delete an open frame file.

[Changing, Moving or Deleting of Files in the PIF DESIGNER Folder Forbidden]
Since PIF DESIGNER operates using the files in the PIF DESIGNER folder, do not 
move or delete files in the PIF DESIGNER folder. 
If by some chance PIF DESIGNER operation becomes unstable because files have 
been moved or for some other reason, uninstall 
PIF DESIGNER first (deleting the PIF DESIGNER folder if it remains) and 

To remove PIF DESIGNER, select [EPSON PhotoQuicker]-[Uninstall PIF DESIGNER2.1] 
from [Programs] in the [Start] Menu. 
If you are using Windows XP, select PIF DESIGNER from "Add or Remove Programs" 
in the [Control Panel].

If all items are not deleted, manually delete the files and folders in 
the PIF DESIGNER folder. 

[Cautions for Printing]
PIF DESIGNER uses the functions of EPSON PhotoQuicker 3.2 or higher for printing. 
If you are printing, print after installing EPSON PhotoQuicker 3.2 or higher.

[Cautions for Using Images]
PIF DESIGNER cannot read images having 159 or fewer pixels or 4096 or greater 
pixels either horizontally or vertically. 
Use images with 160 or greater pixels and 4095 or fewer pixels. 
In addition, if large images are used, operations will slow down, so use images 
of a size suitable for printing. 

[Cautions for Creating Character String Items]
When creating a character string item, the frame should be sized so that the 
characters fit exactly. 
When registered in EPSON PhotoQuicker, the entire frame will be converted to an 
image, so the characters may lose their smoothness. 

[Frames Protected by Copyright]
The copyright-protected frames cannot be edited.
An error message will display if an attempt is made to read copyrighted frame data.
