Printing from dosbox under Win10


I have Dos application run on the latest Dosbox SVN Daum and printer Epson LQ350 directly conected to LPT1. When i print document from dosbox, printer prints page without last 5 lines. When i exit from dosbox to windows, printer finish printing last 5 lines. Did anyone know, what i must setup, when i want print whole page without exiting dosbox?

Try this. After you finish your print, type the following into DOSBox:

Ctrl-L Ctrl-Z

Ctrl- means: hold down the Ctrl key while typing the next character. Ctrl-L is a "formfeed" character; Ctrl-Z is DOS's end-of-file character.

That should tell the printer to print the remainder of the page and feed the next sheet.

I agree with the above. You could also put a page break at the end of your document to force it to print all.
