A substrate is the surface that is printed on—for example, paper, carton, or plastic. The substrates available in Setup are loaded from the connected digital device. When you add a digital device in Setup, the device's substrates are automatically imported into the Substrate dialog box from the device. You can view the settings of a selected substrate in the right pane of the Substrate dialog box. The settings of the substrate are read-only and cannot be edited in Setup. However, you can add a size(s) to the selected substrate and remove a size(s).
