Printer.PaperSize and Printer.PaperBin are not changing the printer setup

  • 14 years ago

    I want to change the paper size and the paper bin during execution of my program and this change is not made on the printer (Canon IP4200) which continues to print on the first paper type. Has anybody found this problem before ?  Thanks for your help.

    Without the code is hard to know, but it could be that you are reseting the printer (so the parameters go back to the original) or you can be printing directly to printer (without printer object) and in such case the printer.PaperSize and other don't work (like when you are printing tickets).
