Unwanted Form Feeds

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??

If you are on a Novell Network then the form feed is being generated in either your capture commands (if you still use DOS capture command) or in the printer driver itself.

I the printer driver you should be able to go to PRINTER SETTINGS
section of the PROPERTIES and look for a FORM FEED setting.

If this is not the case then it may be in the settings in the application.  You might also want to look at the fact that there might been an extra Carriage Return or blank space being spillied into another page.

Hope that helps.
