    WordPerfect & Dell printer problem

    I have a problem with a PC running XP Home and WordPerfect 11 with a Dell A940 printer. The printer handles all applications normally but a one page WP letter takes minutes to spool and print. Quattro prints normally and so does Word. If I try to print 10 pages I need to hang around for five minutes for the file to start printing - or sometime just hang. WPWin 11.00.233 is the version running, and Corel seem to have abandoned support for the WordPerfect suites - no downloads or updates and web site that only focus on graphics products ! Help please !

    Re: WordPerfect & Dell printer problem

    I sympathize with your plight, David! I was a WP user ever since Version 1 but I quit about Version 9. WP has had its share of printing woes in the past and if you can't find any updates or drivers on their site, the only thing I can suggest is a check with Dell to see if they have anything available for that printer and/or its use by WP. Maybe some Googling around would yield someone else who has a workaround. I don't see WordPerfect get much play here in The Lounge, but hang in there. Maybe someone has an idea for you.

    Re: WordPerfect & Dell printer problem

    Dell Support page has only one driver and one firmware update, which is probably already installed on your printer:
    http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/...d=4150&libid=40

    Consider to acquire monochrome printer which has postscript driver - it will solve your problem.

    Thanks for the lead to the driver update which I will install. I have solved the problem meanwhile with two new sevice pcks - or new to this PC any way ! Corel site download of SP! and SP2 has fixed the slow or no printing problem.

    Regards
