Hi Glenda. The best way to resolve this problem is to copy the text (presumably you did this) then Paste it into a word processor, like say Microsoft Word, or if you do not have a full Office Suite, download and install the free Libre Office (excellent!) via this link: http://download.cnet.com/LibreOffice/3000-18483_4-75337651.html then use its word processor (note that during the installation you are asked if you want Libre Office to work exactly as though Microsoft Office so opt for that - it's still all free) then you can Paste what you copied into a new page and once that is done, you can re-select the text in the document and change it to any font, any size, any colour etc as you wish. If you don't know how to copy text from a web page, put your mouse pointer at the start of the text you want to copy, it will change to a cursor (like a letter I) then hold down the left mouse button and drag the mouse down until all the text you want to copy is highlighted (could be white lettering on red or blue - depends on your computer setup). Then whilst it is highlighted, hold down the CTRL key and whilst that is down, press the C key (= CTRL+C). The text is now copied to your Windows Clipboard- it only stays there until next copy is made or computer turned off. To Paste into the word processor document left click inside the document and then use CTRL+V to Paste in the text. By repeating the selection process you can then change the font as mentioned using the facilities in the programme. That way you can change the font, colour, layout and so forth and of course, Save to keep for future reference.

SOURCE: 2 sided printing problem

What driver did you download? The PS driver is much less capable and I am wondering if thats what you downloaded.
I am using the PCL driver and the selections are 1 sided, 2 sided long edge , 2 sided short edge.
Unless you are runnung CAD, you really should be running a PCL driver.
Maybe I am misunderstand what you are telling me also.
If you have the PCL driver and thats still a problem let me know and I will forward all I can find.

SOURCE: half page printing

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Error code OXC18A000A HP Officejet Pro X451dw


Hi
This type of behavior normally appears when printing out a "non-safe" font. Font usage is varied and there are fonts that are created just for viewing on web pages, as well as fonts that are best for printing. Often, these fonts will get used in the wrong place, or a developer will pick a font because they like it, not because it is safe for use in all the browsers.
I went to the link at sparkfun and printed it out with no problem, but I have the X576dw model of the OfficeJet Pro X series. I want to print to the X451dw like you have to see if I get the same issue.
When you copy/paste into Word, you essentially change the fonts. Word probably doesn't have the same font that is used in the web page.
Looking at the source for that site, they are using a font called "Roboto Slab" and sourced it from googleapis.com which is probably causing the issue. abcFileHippo Download Free Latest Update Software and Printer Drivers

You can try a work-around it by copying the text into another program like Word or WordPad, adjusting the fonts and then printing.

Change font size in e mail


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

Are you using Internet Explorer? If so you should see a "100%" in the bottom right hand corner. Click on that and it will change to "125%". This is the magnification level of web pages and can be changed all the way up to 400% or a custom size. Easiest way to change sizes.

I have a photosmart 4650...when I print from a web page, the print is so small I cant read it. How do I change the font size?


Best Answer -
That entirely depends on what you are printing. A printerwill only produce what it is given.

If you are printing your own document then you change the font in the documentbefore printing or select the font before you start.

However I suspect the reason you are asking this is because you are printing apdf document from the internet. In which case the font is fixed.

If so, then you will have to copy and paste the document in to a word processorlike Word, highlight it all and the increase the font. You will then have toreformat the whole document as the increased font will throw the orginalformatting all out of line.

When you have straightened it all up then print it off.
ALTERNATIVELY, if you are printing on ordinary web page then you need to follow the below instruction
Instructions
1. 1 Go to theweb page that you want to print and right-click it. Click "PrintPreview." If you want to print part of the page, highlight the contentthat you want to print and right-click the selection. Click "PrintPreview." 2. 2 Click the "Page Setup" icon located onthe top of the Print Preview window to launch the Page Setup dialog box. Click"Change Font." 3. 3 Select the font you want to use in the"Size" window. If you want to change the font type, make yourselection in the "Font" window. Click "OK" to save thechanges and click "OK" again. 4. 4 Turn on your printer if it is not on. Click the"Print" icon on the Print Preview window to print your web page.

You won't be able to achieve the results you're looking for by printing from a web page. You'll need to Copy and paste the portions you want into say, MS Word, and then you can manipulate the tabs, and fonts to your liking. Hope this helps.
