Unwanted Form Feeds
Posted on 1997-03-29
We use a windows based mail system within our industry.
The users of the application have the option to print to
standard A4 sheets (i.e. one message per sheet) or to continuous roll paper. When using continuous roll paper
there is an option within the application to set how many
blank lines are used to separate each message (1-12).
The question is that when this application is used with W95 or Win NT the o/s adds a form feed. This is obviously
very annoying for the user.
To clarify the layout. Although the PC's are interconnected via a LAN the print out are to the local LPT1 port.
Therefore the capture command is not used. The driver
that is being used is the Oki ML 280 Elite (IBM) which is
on the standard CDROM. As to setting the FF option off in the driver I am unable to find the check box.
Within the application is an option to choose continuous feed paper or not. The continuous feed is selected with
5 lines between each message.
BTW this option works fine on Win 3.1/3.11.
Can anyone tell me if you can turn this option off??
