    Are you talking film or prints?

    It depends -- fiber or RC? test print or final?

    For proper prints, regardless of paper, I wait until it's done (as with film). For test prints I check after 30 sec for RC and one minute for fiber. I never leave prints (or film for that matter) in the fix past their fixing time.

    like I say. "No sense in washing the film if it is not fixed" was told that many many years ago and it is still the rule today.

    I turn the lights on soon after the print is in the fixer, whether they are test prints or not.

    With film, I use 2-bath fixing, and I look in after the first bath. If it's not cleared, I know to rotate my batches.
    f/22 and be there.

    Bad question. Not specific enough.

    Ask film, paper, acid and alkaline and it might mean something! Ask stop no stop and it takes on even more significance.

    30 seconds for paper and for film when i pull it out of the Jobo for washing, i don't look at the film until fixing is complete.

    Film: when it's done.

    I was referring to prints when I answered the poll: after 30 seconds.

    I use RC paper. My work-flow includes stop bath, and acidic rapid fixer at paper strength.
