I have now also been able to duplicate the problem in the "First Method" above in Libre Office Draw, so I have contacted TurboPrint and asked them to look into whether it is a problem with their printer driver's landscape mode. I haven't been able to duplicate wh...

Yet Another Blank Printout Problem!

Okay, I've read all of the threads complaining about blank printouts, and I'm aware of the sequence you are supposed to use, as well as the possibility that the lines are too thin to print. Here's my setup and what I do (steps to reproduce): I want to print to 12" x 18" paper. I use Puppy Linux, and...

This is only helpful if a user already has a basic idea of what a tool is supposed to do and only needs a hint in the right direction. The ...
