Re: how to print in landscape

What version of OpenVMS

What hardware architecture

What printer manufacturer

What type printer

What printer model

What software FOR the printer, version included

How is the printer connected, physically?

What type queue is driving the printer

 

Those are just the preliminary questions.  There's not even enough in the question to guess at an answer.

Re: how to print in landscape

Sami,

 

   I'm not a big fan of printing at all. I'm even less of a fan of the very old, clunky and opaque printing infrastructure on OpenVMS (with due respect to Paul A, much like my respect for folk who still know their way around a Model T Ford ;-).

 

  For my money, you print anything from OpenVMS by transferring the file to your favourite desktop operating system and printing it from there.

 

Case in point, it should NOT be necessary to get the answer to a pageful of "preliminary questions" just to answer something as fundamental as specifying the orientation of the print job.

 

The answer should be more like "click the LANDSCAPE button in the standard printer dialog box"
