Crystal reports printing on DOT Matrix printers

By amigoaria ·
Hi All,

I have a problem with printing Crystal reports on DOT Matrix printer, the printing is slow "about 30 to 40 %" increase in time from the old text reports.

I searched and found that because crystal prints in graphics mode, it takes time.

I can summarize the work around in the following:

1. Try export to text then print ?not good as it lose the layout and object palces on the printed form"
2. Try using a printer font 'not working'
3. Try print as draft 'not working'

Does Anybody has any idea on a better work around?

Thanks,

Printing Modes of Dot Matrix

by shahzaduetian In reply to Crystal reports printing ...

MANY DOT MATRIX PRINTERS HAVE TWO TO FOUR MODES. USERS WHO WANT TO QUICKLY RUN OFF DOCUMENTS WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT PRINT QUALITY USE THE DRAFT MODE. FOR PRINTING EVEN FASTER AND ROUGHER, THERE'S A HIGH SPEED DRAFT MODE. WHEN PRINT QUALITY COUNTS, USERS SWITCH TO REPORT-QUALITY MODE AND, FINALLY, THERE IS LETTER-QUALITY MODE. IN LETTER-QUALITY MODE, YOUR DOT MATRIX PRINTER OPERATES MUCH SLOWER AS IT PRODUCES MORE DOTS FOR EACH CHARACTER.

More Problem

by ruth69rach In reply to Crystal reports printing ...

my boss and I are trying to work out the draft mode but still no luck for a couple of days now.

the problem is the font is resizing itself when printed graphics. for now I am thinking to export it to another file then print it at preformatted. but I'll export it as pdf format. Will try this if i still haven't get solution to this.
