Dot matrix printers with CertiflexDimension forms (Windows XP)

Q:  Some dot matrix printers do not correctly print non-standard size forms (sizes other than 8 1/2 x11).

A:  The solution is to modify the printer driver and add a custom paper size for form printing. Steps are as follows:

  • In the Windows Start Menu, Select Settings; Printers
  • Highlight the correct printer
  • Select File; Server Properties
  • At the Forms tab, select Create a New Form.
  • Assign a name for the new form and specify the size
  • Save the form

This will set up a paper size for the form being used. When printing forms like checks, verify that the correct printer and correct form are being used under Printer Properties.
