When I try to print in landscape mode, it INTERMITTENTLY (of course) prints
as if the paper size were set to legal, ie some stuff on the left
disappears and there is a 4 inch margin on the right.

Earlier today (grr) I had a 23 page document and when I printed page 1 as a
test, it was fine. I then printed 10 pages together, and had to remove the
paper to stop the printing, and close everything and reboot (it
is impossible to delete the "pending" or "paused" print jobs, but I have
learned to live with that).

After the reboot, 1 page printed fine. A second single page printed "legal-
like" prompting this desperate message.

Anyone? TIA!!!


1. Mac OS8.5/PM6.52 Font Printing Problem

Upgraded to OS 8.5 with the new LW driver. Have no problems printing
from other apps w/ATM Deluxe or from fonts in System folder w/Apple's

However, Pagemaker's print driver seems not to want to find a font;
Univers & Cond. Substitutes Courier. This happens whether the font is
embedded in any EPS or just on the pub page.

Have tried: Fonts put in Sys Folder instead of ATM, Updating PPD.
Rebuilding desktop, zapping PRAM, etc.

Holding option down while selecting Print and going to the Apple driver
sometimes works ok,  but eps files from FH8 aren't always printing

Is there anyway to turn off background printing so that I can check the
"Query printer..." box in print options? With the newer drivers you
can't access this w/o using the Apple driver/dialog box.
