Whenever a user prints multiple pages via WordPerfect to a HP Laser Jet 1020, it asks for a manual feed. It does not do this with any other software.
Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue would be appreciated.

Thanks.

check how the paper size is set up in wordperfect. usually means its set to a custome size and the printer trays are set to A4. may need to adjust the printer or program.

im not entirely sure to be honest, if its printing normally from other programs then it would suggest that word perfect being the culprit. Having never used the software i would play around and see if you can adjust the paper size to standard a4 rather than a custom size.

the other alternative is change the tray type and size to custom on the printer and see if it prints from the tray this wont help much though as all the other programs will stop working.

Does it do this with all documents or just a certain document?  Have you tried creating a new document as a test (one word in the doc would be fine).  The page layout of the doc you are printing may require legal paper or some other size that is not currently in the printer.  If you do a print preview, how does the document look?

In fact, it is not the paper tray, but the paper SIZE you must select.

Select Printer Setup in WordPerfect and indicate the correct paper size (US Letter, A4, etc.) you are using in your printer.

Check the margins of the document in word perfect. It could be that the margins are not set to a standard US paper size such as A4. I know in word if you do a print preview it shows the margin or paper size it is going to print on, I am not for sure if this is the case in wordperfect.
