I am trying to print plain text files which are just formatted reports. The reports are standardized at 320 characters per line.
They are printed on A3 paper in landscape. We use a Tally MT691 printer. And the computers running on Windows XP
I have noticed that when i print this text file from the windows command prompt using the print command, the printer is able to print upto 320 characters.
But when i print the same text file by opening it in the IE(vesion 6) and from the notepad, the printer truncates after 159 columns and wraps after 146 columnns respectively.
How can i achieve the command line printing behavior from notepad/IE.. Am i doing something wrong? Can somebody please help.
