PDT does solve the issue partly but does not allow page setup to change from portrait to landscape. Any ideas?

    When Printer Setup selected, set-up button is only availabale when PDT is unselected.. Page Setup is not available when PDT is selected. When PDT is unselected, screen print only prints lines and not screen contents.

    You're right the PDT sets these values. But you can modify the PDT .. actually you modify the PDF and then create the PDT Here is where my .PDT and PDF files exist C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\Emulator\PdfPdt Copy the .PDF file you're using, giving it a new name <- we don't want to screw up a pretty good file. I was using hppcl5.pdf so I made a copy hppcl52.pdf Open the new pdf with word pad Go down to the session parameters Change DEFAULT_CPI?=010 to 017 Change DEFAULT_LPI?=006 TO 008 Change MAXIMUM_PRINT_POSITION=132 Getting Landscape was a little tricker - for my HP printer Landscape was listed as 1B 26 6C 31 4F /* LANDSCAPE */ Two steps were needed 1. Top section of PDF create a new MACRO -- if you already have a landscape macro, skip SFO EQU 1B 26 6C 31 4F /* LANDSCAPE */ 2. Add landscape macro to the startjob Save your new file New go to File Printer Setup Check Use PDT Select PDT button Convert PDF ... Find your PDF and Convert Button check report for good convert Close the convert window Select your new pdt Select your printer

    Hi Phil, Thanks for your assistance in this matter. I followed your instructions to the letter, but still no joy. What resulted was still a portrait print but with smaller font. Surviving with the portrait prints, but the users will enventually be on my back, because before V5R3, on V5R1, they were able to print landscape.

    It's in the landscape - the codes that I used were for my HP printer you will need to use codes for your printer which would be found near the bottom of the page. Must 1. create a macro at the top and 2. include the macro included in the startup as in: START_JOB=CUL CBP EC1 SFO I added the SFO macro to the START_JOB list. Phil
