Re: Spoolfile gets cut off on PDF using Infoprint Server



fixed

In this case you probably don't want to configure the width of the PDF, but
the size of the font and the spacing between lines. Right now it's most
likely that the font size being used is "too big" for the available real
estate (normally a 8.5x11 piece of digital paper).

It could be the LPI, CPI, length and width of your spooled file aren't
correct causing this. This of course assumes infoprint uses these values
to determine the font size and spacing used.

In our SPLTOOL software these items are controlled by a user defined file
where they can manage those PDF attributes.

We usually retrieve the spool file attributes to get the CPI and
perform an OVRPRTF. If the value is 10 CPI we override it to 12,
if 15 CPI or greater we override to 20.

Subject: Spoolfile gets cut off on PDF using Infoprint Server

Hi,


My company is using Infoprint Server to convert spoolfiles to
PDF and put
them on the network or send them by email. This works fine,
except for the
spoolfiles that are wider than 138 characters.


For example, we have a spoolfile that is 183 characters wide.
If we sent this
spoolfile to the network as PDF using Infoprint Server, all
characters from
139-183 are cut off and not shown on the PDF.


I tried searching the net for parameters that allow me to
configure the width
of the PDF file, but haven't been able to find any. Could
anyone guide me to
finding a solution for this problem?


Kind regards,


Erwin Donker
