I have a new HP Officejet Pro 8620 printer. I use CorelDraw x7. I was attempting to print out a 4x6 photo. It came out drenched with ink and naturally very blurry. I phoned HP. They told me I HAD to convert my finished document to PDF and then print from Adobe. It does work, but it seems very strange that such an expensive program such as CorelDraw could not print out a simple picture without the aid of another software manufacturer. Does this sound right to the Experts? I am wondering if the HP person simply found a way to make it function instead of getting to what might be an incorrect setting in CorelDraw.
