    Hi,

    I have an Epson LQ 300+ dot matrix printer network shared from a Windows XP machine.
    I use a specific custom print size (W: 21.6, H: 13.95). I have a Windows 7 machine
    that uses this printer. I have added the custom print size to the Windows 7 list of
    print sizes.

    When I print from the Windows XP machine, it prints ok.

    However, when I print it from the Windows 7 machine, it prints the stuff but form feeds
    as if it was set to print to an A4 page size.

    I've deleted the printer and re-added it on the Windows 7 machine and I've set the
    print size to use the specific custom print size; but it still acts as if it's printing A4.

    Can someone shed some light as to what's going on?


    Thanks

    What driver are you using? One that Windows found? Or Windows 7 from Epson? Or Vista from Epson?

    It seems as if I'm wrong. All machines ignore the custom print size.

    The Windows XP machines got the driver from the CD that came with the printer.
    The Windows 7 machines got the driver that Windows found.

    All I can suggest (for any of the systems giving trouble) is to try the latest driver from Epson's web site.
