A workstation customization object *wscst should handle this. You can have
multiple device descriptions defined for the same printer/ip - each with
their own outq.
Question - does this printer truly have an IPDS card?

Subject: RICHO Aficio SP5200DN: Margin alignment is off for 1 line at the

Hi list!

This case is about the margins on a form. This pre-printed form was being
used in a big dot-matrix printer and now we are moving it to laser. The
issue is that, before, the printer was able to print the 1st line above the
pre-printed line (top of the form with no margins) and line 2 was being
printed in the first line on the form and so on. In essence, I can't print
above my pre-printed line:

a) Printer is already printing other forms on drawer 1.

b) I need to print this new form on drawer 2.

c) Printer is DEVTYPE(*IPDS)

d) PRTF is not using SKIPB for the header (it was before)

e) I am using OVRPRTF command to print this.

f) I tried to use FORMDF(F100S) in the OVRPRTF command.

g) I tried to use FRONTMGN(0 0) in the OVRPRTF command.

h) I cannot change the margins on this printer because then I will
affect all the printer (all drawers), affecting then the way the forms are
being printed in drawer 1 (based on RICHO tech support info)

So I decided to share this with the list and see if anybody has this
scenario with the same printer or a similar scenario that can share your

Thanks in advance,
