    NovaT4 Cover Slip printing

    Hi

    We've recently had to replace the printer our Cover Supervisor had. She uses NovaT4 still and now when printing cover slips it comes out quarter the size!!

    All other printing appears to be fine so not sure why this has changed. I've checked print setup and all appears fine but must be missing something.

    Anyone else had this happen?

    If it is an HP Printer then it is a known issue with certain models!
    If you are a SIMS school you ought to be using Cover7 by now. Cover in NT4 has not been supported for a good while!

    With HP printers the best solution is to install an older and fairly standard driver instead of the specific one for the model. Even something as old as an HP4 driver does the job usually.

    I had this type of issue when using a PCL6 compatible driver, worked fine when changed to the older PCL5c driver.

    I tried installing older drivers but just didn't seem to want to have it but do have an alternative now. We have PDFCreator installed on all computers so printing to this then to the HP printer works fine.

    Thanks for the suggestions though.

    Have you tried just using a plain HP LaserJet driver, usually solves things like this.
