When printing from Microsoft Word for example, a rotated character in a table is not printed in the correct position. The following are examples of correct and incorrect printing positions:
|Figure 1. Correct print position||Figure 2. Incorrect print position|
This phenomenon occurs when using Microsoft's Universal driver (Unidrv) or Microsoft Word. As both the Universal driver and Word are manufactured by Microsoft, Epson cannot resolve this issue. The cause of the print position are related to the following two factors:
There is a workaround to this issue. Please change the following two items to get the correct printing result.
Change the default Print Quality setting in printer driver to 120 x 144 dpi on a 9-pin printer, or 180 x 180 dpi on a 24-pin printer. The vertical Print Quality setting is the about same as the horizontal value e.g. 120 x 144 dpi, 180 x 180 dpi.
In Microsoft Word, enable the function "Use printer metrics to lay out document". After enabling this setting, Word will take into account the layout setting selected in the printer driver.
In Word 2007, the location of this option is different. Click on then Word Options. Click on Advanced in the Word Options window, scroll down to the Compatibility options for heading and make sure that Layout Options is expanded. In this list, enable the function "Use printer metrics to lay out document" and click OK.
After making these changes, set the table width and font size as appropriate, and then print again.
