    Windows XP Printer problems

    I have a new Dell running Windows XP. When I connect my HP Deskjet 870Cxi, it prints BUT the font sizes all come out about 1 point smaller than they should. (This applies to Arial, Times NR, Courier etc) The same trial program when printed off 2 Win98 machines connected either to this printer or a Laserjet 4L print fine. Have talked to HP who have suggested that I try 550C, 895 drivers but that makes no difference. All the divers I have tried in XP think that the bottom margin is around 3cm whereas the default should be 1.17cm. This is driving me mad as it is vital that documents I print are consistent in font size. Has anyone had this problem?

    Re: Windows XP Printer problems

    I have recently installed a new HP printer (& more importantly, Driver) that has the option to print full size or adjust print size if the margins of the document don't suit the margins of the printer. This may be the cause of the shrink in your font size.
