Printer problem or application problem?

I use an HP Deskjet 5550. My favorite word processing application is Word
Perfect (I use WP Office 2002 Professional with the latest service pack.)

I am unable to format an envelope size 6 3/4. I get a message saying the
printer does not support that size, and do I want to use the nearest close
approximate (DL), That is an acceptable but not convenient alternative.

However, using Microsoft Word, I am able to format and print size 6 3/4
envelopes without difficulty.

I have had extensive conversations on a Corel users forum about this, but
nobody seems to come up with a solution.

Is this a problem with the printer, or is this a problem with Word Perfect?

It's a problem with that particular edition of WordPerfect. WP 2002
seems to have all sorts of problems with printers and not just your
particular model.  With my system running Win 98se, 512Mb RAM, HP-Mp
printer and WordPerfect 2002, most of the time, but not always, when I
try to print a merge document, the printer hangs until I shut down the
merge document and shut down WordPerfect. Then the silly thing prints.
If I just try to shut down WordPerfect withour first exiting out of
the merge document, my system hangs. Then I have to do the
Ctrl/Alt/Delete dance to kill WP.  

I do believe that there is a cure for your particular problem though.
I think WP has issued a patch to fix your envelope problem. The patch
is supposed to be somewhere on their FTP sire. Hope this helps some.

Thank you, Frank. I've tried to find something on the Corel website, but
I'll take another look. I agree it must be with WP 2002. I used WP7 for
years and never had this problem. It does not appear to be specific to any
particular printer--I've had it with three different HP printers.

Gordon...... format using a #10 envelope instead and do your setup so
the return address end goes in first.

Printing problem.. Is it my problem or the comercial printer?
Hello, I hope you guys can help me. I recently made an ad in adobe illustrator which has a greyscale image with an orange to transparent gradient on top made by creating an opacity mask. Well on the screen it looks fine and so I sent it to the comercial printer. However when the comercial printer gave us the proof it shows a sort of lighter hue band in the area where the orange gradient ends and meets with the grey image below. In other words, instead of the gradient blending smoothly with the grey image below (as it shows on screen!) there is like a lighter strip that just almost ends abroup...

Lexmark Printer Problems
A friend of mine has a Lexmark all in one, model X1150. Just recently it appears to have developed a fault, when she tries to print anything it brings up an error message saying 'Printer Cover Open'. The printer cover is fully closed so I can't see why the error is brought up every time, does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance Diane Diane wrote: > A friend of mine has a Lexmark all in one, model X1150.

Locate where the printer door activates the switch on the printer and try depressing the switch with a finger or pen or pencil to see if that turns off the message next time she prints. Logically that should be the only reason she would get that message - the switch isn't being depressed enough. I used to have a Lexmark and I knew where that switch was, but I don't know where it is on the X1150. Sometimes I like ...

Printer Problems
Hi all. I have a system running FreeBsd 6.2 and I want to make my new Epson Stylus printer DX4050 work on it. This is what I have done so far: 1. Installed CUPs 1.2.12 from the ports collection. I spent the day yesterday 'configuring it. As far as I can see, all I needed to do was to enable the cupsd scheduler in /etc/rc.conf. There was one thing that troubled me: when i typed 'lpstat' I got a error message saying: "cupsd: unable to open log file "/var/log/cups/access_log" - No such file or directory. I thought this file and the error log would have been automatically generated when I installed it. Anyway, I created the file by hand in the end: QUESTION - does this sound right? 2. My printer is a cheap inkjet. It is not a postscript printer. Therefore I need something more to make it work. I figured it would work with ghostscript. I checked this database of openprinting.org BEFORE i bought my printer, and it said that this type of printer works perfectly on BSD with Gutenprint 5 and the driver for the earlier Epson DX3850. I checked this website again today (which says that anyone can modify its contents by the way) and it now seems to say that this printer is 'a paperweight' i.e not supported. - is this not strange?? 3. If I install Gutenprint, do I need ghostscript as well or not? thanks On Sun, 16 Sep 2007 10:00:40 -0400, Joe Doe <"curious joe"@machine.net> wrote: > Hi all. I ...

printer problem
About 10 days ago my PC crashed. My hard drive stopped working and the partition that had OS2 (actually eCS 1.0) could not be recovered. I had to re-install APL2 for OS2. That was no problem. However I have been unable to recover my printer setup. I have an old Epsom LQ1500 As I recall I was using a generic printer object since the LQ1500 is no longer available as an option. So when I installed a printer I tried a Generic 24 pin 256 (and also a second printer object; LQ1050 as well as a third generic). In my previous (pre-crash) system I had the job setup to print landscape. B...

Problems with printers
I use EasyWriter to create books, and print the books using a postscript level II driver direct to a file. Then I delete all site numbers I don't like. The next step is to transform the postscript file into a acrobat reader file. After this I use the acrobat reader files to print it using the printer driver for Epson SC3000 machine. I don't print it directly to the machine because I have to print the datas for each book and it takes a lot of cpu-power. So I print it first to a file and then the file (often 35 megabyte or more for the half book) to the machine. It is all okey until 200...
