Nothing much, I'm afraid. RISC OS 5.** printing is broken in
respect. I'm sure someone will be along in a moment to explain
I've been through this recently. Upgrade Printers by downloading the
latest release from RISC OS Open.
Thanks go to John-Mark Bell who reported............
"This can be found in "all-bin-2007-11-15.zip" from
"Note that the !Printers in that zip file is not complete -- you'll
need to merge it with an existing !Printers 1.73."
Paul Vigay also reported........
"Having said that, I've encountered weird redraw problems with
!Printers 1.73 so I've gone back to the previous version to avoid
crashing the machine."
If you can get this to work only portrait printing in NS is possible
- so wide pages are cut off. I think DrawPrint - designed specially
for Iyonix users needing NS printing is still probably the best way
Good luck and let us know how you get on.
