Question about Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer
I am printing on continuous label sheets. I have my labels set up in WordPerfect as 4 to a page (even though it's continuous paper). This is what worked on my previous dot matrix. The printer won't print the first line of every 4 labels. It doesn't matter where my TOF is. My top and bottom margins are zero. I want to print right up to the perforation. It does this on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th label, but on the 1st, 5th, 9th, etc., it leaves off the first line. Very frustrating. Have a ticket in with Epson but they don't like problems they can't solve with a ready made answer. :( If anyone can help, I would SO appreciate it! Thank you!
It sounds like you are trying to get too much onto the labels or onto a sheet of labels. Try a few pages with a size smaller font and if that solves the problem, the issue is too much info for the epson to fit on.
WP will push the limits of any printer if you make it do so like this and the printer maker may have rounded the specs in the driver.
Update your driver.
Try changing from inches to cm or points etc to see what the limits are.
Then respect that the printer can do no more with that particular driver.
