Some typical total patch number/paper size combinations are shown below. These "magic" numbers are found by using printtarg to compute the row length and number of rows, and then adjusting the total number of patches to fill the last row or paper size, in a trial and error fashion.

Note that some people create charts with larger numbers of patches for the ColorMunki by altering an Eye-One Pro chart, and making scanning jigs to guide the instrument more accurately. This may reduce patch reading accuracy unless suitable care is taken.
