Printing in Windows 2K

By wise ·
Lately, we upgraded our OS to Windows 2000 Pro however we had problems when printing. When we print, we set the font using the printer settings of the printer (we use Epson LX-300) a dot-matrix. However, Windows 2000 bypasses the printer's built-infonts and prints its own. We didn't have this problem when we were using Windows 95/98. Is there a way to make Windows 2000 use the printer's built-in fonts and not it own Windows fonts?

Try to change/update the printer driver or reinstall it as a new printer device.

I've got the latest drivers for the printer for Windows 2000. Any other suggestion?

Haven't worked with DMPs for a while and not sure what software you are printing with but try this. When creating your docs, select a font with a printer icon beside it. If it has a "TT" beside it it means its a True Type font and will be printed graphically.

My company uses pre-printed forms and use a custom-made software programmed in Magic 8.0.

Printer properties, Advanced tab, Print Processor button, Default Data Type set to raw? Text?

I tried to do this but Windows 2000 gives me an error that it cannot save the settings when it is set to text.

Use the Add Printer wizard to add the Generic/Text printer. Go to Printer properties, Advanced tab, Print Processor button, Default Data Type set to Text.
