Description Jack Moffitt 2000-05-30 11:55:39 PDT
Originally reported by: gavalencia@users.sourceforge.net
Using GSWIN32C.EXE  with djet500 to print a file in landscape mode on a HP 2000C.  The first 3 characters on the left margin are missing.  When I edit the postscript file to use a larger offset (1st moveto parameter), the text appears ok.  When I send the postscript file to a printer with a builtin postscript interpreter, it prints ok.  I am not able to get ghostscript to print the file properly by setting /Margin etc.

Ghostscript was invoked with theo following command line:

c:\aladdin\gs6.01\bin\gswin32c -dBATCH -sDEVICE=djet500 -r300x300 -sOutputFile=LPT saprint.ps

I then copied LPT to the printer with 

copy LPT LPT1:

I was able to work around the problem by sending the following postscript file to the printer prior to printing the problem file.  This works but it leaves a .5" margin at the top and left which is ok for this application.

%!PS-Adobe-2.0

% Reset the offset and margins.

  /PageOffset [-12 -18]
  /Margins [0 0]
  /.HWMargins [0 0 0 0]
