Dave, You just need to sell it as a feature - more room to make notes! :-) Seriously, there are some differences between fonts on printers from different manufacturers, and this is the result. I don't know of a way to cure it, unless you want to build custom printer definition tables, or try specifying fonts on the OVRPRTF statement. IBM has a number of copyrighted fonts at different CPI/point sizes (13.3 CPI, I believe) that no one else can include in their emulations. Since Lexmark used to be an IBM subsidiary, they had those fonts included. I'm not sure if current Lexmark printers include the same fonts. This is one reason to attempt to standardize on a single vendor for printers.

We have a Lexmark Optra SE3455 that until last week was attached via twinax. We moved the printer to a location where another printer (an HP4, I believe) had been hooked up on a HP JetDirect network box. I have it set up as a remote writer. It prints just about anything that I throw at it from the AS/400 but the users are complaining that the font is smaller now than it used to be. I've seen before and after examples and they are correct. It's not a huge difference but it makes the margins almost a half-inch wider. I have tried different emulations but no difference. I started it as a HP6. I'm open to suggestions.
