Greetings, rvseitz!

Go to the printer settings and change the font type to regular size or one size smaller.

Best wishes, war1

Been there, done that, if you mean OE Text Size. No Help - printer ignores OE font.

Bob, I meant go to your HP printer settings and change the font size.  Go to Control Panel > Printers. Right click on the HP printer icon and select Properties. Now look for font size on one of the tabs and change it to a smaller size.

On some HP printer, there is a font size control on the printer itself.

No Font Size Tab in Control Panel>Printers> Properties.

Fontsize should come from applications which are okay except fot OE6 (SP1)

The problem actually went away. I do not know why.
