This page - Recommended Fixes for Print for 7.1
lists several 5770TS1 fixes since the function released.

Also, I have seen many instances where IBM transform functions do odd things
when the page size is odd - 13.19 ... try 14.0 x 11 on your printer file
(and verify ptfs) and see if same results.

Interesting. I would not have expected the difference.

Sent by: "MIDRANGE-L" <midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx>


This is my first attempt at creating a PDF directly from an IBM i spool
file. I first ran my process to create the spool file like normal and
then I used the CPYSPLF command to create the PDF on the IFS. When I did
this, the PDF was created using the CourierStd font and it filled the
page. The page size was 13.19 x 11.0 in. It looked good. So, I used the
OVRPRTF command to direct the report directly to a PDF. When I did this,
it used ArialMT and TimesNewRomanPSMT. The page size was 14 x 11 and the
text only filled 3.6 inches of the page width. It looks tiny on the page.

So, how do you control the font and font size that it uses to create the
PDF? Do the properties of the printer file control anything?
