How to make templates using TXT files.


I am printing AS/400 screen as txt file format (softcopy- on desktop using same pre-defined txt file).

The issue is that every time when I like to print the target TXT file, I have to change the setting.
For example: to print I have every time to change the Orientation page to Landscape, Margins,font size.. etc.

Is there any way to save the txt file setting, as we have in MS.Word as a template.

Thank you.

Note: am using windows client. (end user).

Just go into the preferences of your printer (in Control Panel) and set its default to Landscape - this should sort you out

HI FireW0lf,

I know this, It will affect printing to all files formats.

not only printing setup, also font, size, start of the line, edges.
txt file format is not saving changes.

Hope you find a solution.
