    User Defined paper size for dot matrix

    Locked

    by guyp ·

    On a new system on my LAN i have an Epson LQ-1500 dot matrix printer i use to print cheques, however, after going to XP, i cannot set the correct paper size so i must print a cheque, then reset the paper to print the next cheque. Is there a driver i can use so i can set the paper size for XP? I have no problem setting the size for other printers, or on my older win9x systems, it seems to just be the XP driver i have a problem with. I cannot use laser cheques at this time as i have alot of older form fed cheques to use first. I would appreciate any assistance. Thank You

      One of the problems with the XP printer drivers for many older printers, is reduced functionality of the device.

      Epson does not have a XP driver for your printer.

      Depending how many forms you have, your best option may be to get a newer printer that has XP support from the printer manufacture.

      Thank youfor your answer but i should have been more specific, the printer is actually a Panasonic KX-P1524 but they recommend the Epson driver as Panasonic has no driver for this printer since DOS 3.

      Open the printers folder.

      Click ont he printer, then File, Server Properties.

      From here you can customise an existing paper size or create a new one. I had the same problem with an Epson LQ-2180.

      If it is network printer you may need to repeat this on the server (providing its either Nt or 2000).
