Printing a report at 12 CPI using font 85

We have a report that should be printing at 12 CPI with a font of 85. The printer is a IBM 1552 laser infoprint printer. It looks to be ignoring the 12 CPI but if I change it to 15 CPI it does recognize that and prints accordingly. Does anyone know what we are possibly doing wrong. The CPI and Font are on the ovrprtf command.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

If you take a look at the attributes on the spooled file – are they the same as the settings on the ovrprtf?
What make/model is the device description setup as?

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Hi, To answer your question is yes the attributes are the same. The printer is a IBM Infoprint 1552. Its using a User-defined object of IBM1552.

    Hi, Can you post a DSPDEVD screen shot? If you change the CPI to another value apart from 12 or 15 does that work OK? Is it only 12 that it refuses to print with? Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    Perhaps the printer doesn't have a 12 pitch font? You could try setting the point size to 10 in addition to the other overrides you are setting.

    IPDS settings on the IBM effect the way text fits on the page . Controlling it to print exactly 12 CPI might possibly be done by testing the different combinations of IPDS settings. I have the settings adjusted on ours so our text drops into the overlays in the correct positions. For just plain text as long as everything fits on the page and is easy enough to read we don't worry about CPI. If you are using a PSFCFG you can turn the You can turn change "font substitution messages " to *YES and check to see if the 400(i Series) is doing any font substitution whicch could change the way it looks. Check: Printable Area Whole (this will effect size of text on report ) Font Ctrl Relaxed for ways to adjust output
