    Default HP Officejet Printer Predujice

    When I print from Xara on heavy card stock on my HP OfficeJet printer, if I specify HP Matte Presentation Paper (even though the paper is not HP) is prints fine. If I specify Other Matte Inkjet Paper if prints way off center. Note to self, Lie to the printer.

    check the printers own settings gary - they may be set up different for the two options - this is not the same as the xara settings

    I know that Steve. It is the HP printer's set up. That was the point I was trying to make.

    sure Gary you can tell the printer you are using a paper that you are not.. and in fact I do that all the time with my brother printer

    an option label is just that - a label that differentiates one set of optimised settings from another [you could call it anything you wanted]- if i choose 'inkjet paper' on my printer it defaults to a higher quality print setting than 'normal paper', so if i want high print quality on normal paper then because changing the option is easier and quicker than changing the underlying setting thats what I usually do, and provided the normal paper is decent quality the only downside is increased drying time and a possible marginal increase in ink usage

    Presumably your HP settings are on different page/margin sizes; they may also be on different quality level/enhancement settings - but it's up to the user to determine if Hp are 'right'

    At the end of the day what works, works

    It's a white lie...(If the paper is)

    It's really hard to find the cardstock thickness specifications of the printers, they often don't list it on their site.
    My Epson tabloid "all in one" has died and I'm looking for a replacement. I realy like the large scanning area!

    I'm leaning towards Brother this time.

    marc brother usually do list paper info onsite.. eg for mine:

    mfc-j6510dw rec paper spec.pdf

    it will scan a maximium 11.45 x 16.76 inches [290.9 x 425.7 mm] - not quite full tabloid /ledger or A3 [it assumes margins]

    yes I like it a lot Hans - though like all inkjets it can seem to eat ink sometimes - had for about 4 years and no problems worth mentioning

    when I bought it I got free ink with it... or perhaps I got the printer free and paid for the ink because what I paid was more or less the same as the market price for the ink alone; of course t'is the ink that makes the money and with some printers that shows, but this has been a workhorse - if only they did an A2... [sigh]

    But at least,though expensive,the cartridges are big enough to get some work done.
    And the paper-tray can always filled unlike those top loaders with a sheet of five.
    Also like the way you can use thicker paper and the duplex settings,for printing cards.
