"Generic / Text Only" driver printer and cyrillic

I am using an application that only supports printing with the "Generic / Text Only" driver. I recently purchased a TM-U220 receipt printer and have it configured as "Generic / Text Only" driver printer. My question is that I need to be able to print Cyrillic(Russian) characters and this configuration is not able to print the cyrillic text. Do you have any ideas for printing cyrillic text when configured with a "Generic / Text Only" driver?

I had the same issue with a Brother QL-500 using the P-Touch software. I've also had the issue with several other non-english characters. I found no answers on how to manage it, but did come up with this solution.
Copy and paste the text into an editor that can read it properly (MS-Word etc..). Format the text/address so it appears how you want it. Make it 'bold' then zoom in to max size to make it fit the whole screen. Press <PrintScreen> and then paste the image onto the label. There is a facility to 'crop' the image and get rid of all the extra bits around the text/address. Then stretch it to fit properly. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately printing Cyrillic(Russian) is driver dependent and your application can only use generic/text driver.

Hi!

Are you using a third party USB adapter or a USB interface? On the self test page that you printed does it say USB connection or something that will say about USB? or does it say parallel or serial connection? try to check the dip switches setting if its configured properly. visit epsonexperts.com site for more info.

Epson TM-U220 Matrix Printer not printing in WinXPP


hi basiime

possible issue is port configuration. if the generic text driver works, apd driver should work too.

what may be happen is that when you install the apd driver the other printer drivers that you have were still using the same port that your apd driver were using. example, you have generic txt assigned to lpt1 and then the apd were assigned on the same port, this is were you get the trouble.

what you must do is, first, check any printer driver that you have using the lpt, say for example, you generic text is using lpt1, when you install the apd driver set it to lpt2. apd drivers will create a new port normally called esdprt. try to use that port but if that will not work reassigned the port of your apd driver to lpt2 printer port then uncheck bi-directional support. from there you should be able to print..

hope that resolves your issue.. =)
