Wrong page length

edited June 2001 in General
I have a problem on RB 5.6 Enterprise with a dot printer.
In my application I set page length =12". In the printer setup dialog, the
application set a wrong page format (Letter?).
The user must change this format to Fanfold 8,5x12". This occurs on Windows
NT 4.0, (driver Epson FX-850).
With Windows 2000 (same printer driver), in the printer setup dialog, the
application set a page format to 'CUSTOM', and all run ok.

In the previus version (RB 5.5) on the same machine (Windows NT 4.0) all run
ok.

What has been changed?

Thanks.
Stefano

    Download the latest printer driver for the Epson. Not sure what has changed
    in RB, however, you can control the printer setup, so your user won't have
    to. There is a Tech Tip: 'Controlling the Printer' and also 'Printing to
    Dot Matrix' in the tech-tips newsgroup.
