Active Report

Hello Admin,

I am using ActiveReports6 with Visual Studio 2017.
After generating the report, it comes fine on screen and all margins looks good. When printing this report on HP printer then report prints fine.
When printing same report from same machine on Cannon printer then top and left margins are off and report is cutting from top and left margins.

Any idea why report is coming fine on screen and HP printer but printing differently when sent to Cannon printer (ImageClass MF4370dn)?

Default PaperSize is set to Letter and Orientation is Landscape while generating the report.

That's not an uncommon problem. Many printers render differently, especially when the type of driver differs. Canon generally makes you use UFR II, which is proprietary. Many other makers will let you use PS or PCL drivers.

You're going to most likely need to make a separate report specific to the Canon printers.

Have you checked the print margins of the different printers? While most are about 5 mm (1/4") all around, there are printers (especially inkjets) with significantly bigger margins.

And, are both printers set to the same paper size? It's possible one driver is set to Letter and the other to A4 - which is longer and narrower than Letter.
