Printing Quattro 10 .prn files

By ed ·
I save quattro10.qpw notebook files to .prn files in C:\onside [a dos printing program] but they will not print. I cannot get the .prn files to print in any windowsXP program. WindowsXP support has not been any help.

Can you print files from any other program with the DOS printing program?

If not, then the root problem is with the printing program and not Quattro or XP.
(Well more correctly, XP's more limited DOS support.)

Check with the programs publisher for a Windows version, or an XP patch.

Perhaps an explanation of what the DOS printing program does for you can help provide an insite to a overall fix for the problem.

Yes dos "onside" prints perfectly in windowsXP if I use Quattro 5 files copied to windowsXP but not any files in Quattro10. The program does not reconize any Quattro10 files. I can change the Quattro10 file to the Quattro5 format but they still will not print. So far a windowsXP patch has not helped.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

Looking at the primary purpose of Onside, you can accomplish the same function with the page setup function of Qpro.

Set your printing to landscape mode, and set the pagination as needed.

I could not locate the website for Onside. Just a few references to it.

Thanks Chas. Quattro 10 uses sheets or pages and will not print a continous spreedsheet without breaks(about an inch) between pages in landscape mode.

Quattro 10 will only print (in any mode) with a page break even though you option out breaks. i.e (it will not print a contious spreedsheet because you can only setup or save in pages or sheets). You can of course, option for a reduced size or width and get it on one sheet.
A small print spreadsheet.
