We have a number of reports that currently go to dot matrix printers, which I would like to start sending to laser. These reports are 132 column, and I want to avoid having to modify the report text if possible.
What I am doing so far, is sending codes:
1b45 (printer reset)
&l370U (set page offset)
(s18H (font pitch to 18)
page offset is to allow for hole punch/binding. With the above font pitch setting, the front of the page is printing perfectly. The back of the page though, is leaving too much space (about double what the space is on that edge on the front), on the right side. The result is that the left side of the text is getting cut off.
Any hints as to what codes to play with would be appreciated.
