Crystal Reports Too Slow

Dear Experts,
 I have a problem with crystal reports.I am printing using an Epson LQ1070.The problem is that when a report is printed it is too slow.It takes forever to print.However, the same report, when imported into MS word and printed to the same printer, it prints quite fast.Is there a way I can make it to print fast when printed directly instead of having to go thru the process of importing and then printing.Another thing is that I would like the font to vary as per the font setting on the printer (which can be changed as per the users wish).How can I achieve this?
Thank you.

CR and dot matrix printers don't get along very well.

Here are things to try
1.  Don't have any graphics.  Text only in the report
2.  Use the default fonts and size for the printer.  I know works against your second request.
