Printer Drivers

The tables below summarize usable drivers for each printer emulation. They are listed in order by decreasing compatibility as you go down the list: select one from as high up on the list as possible, based on what is available from among the drivers supplied with your software. If you don't see one from near the top of the list, give the software manufacturer a call to see if they have added any drivers to those supplied when you purchased your software. Software manufacturers are constantly updating their lists of drivers to keep up with the printer market and they may very well have one which will give maximum compatibility with your printer.

Because there are some differences in characteristics such as speed or access to various features, you may wish to experiment with different drivers. If you must select a driver that is not listed in the table, be sure to check it thoroughly for print features such as boldface, underline and changes in pitch. Don't be surprised if boldfaced items are printed twice, underlines are misplaced, wide spaces are left between lines or the printer behaves chaotically (turn off the printer if the latter occurs). These are all characteristics of an incompatible driver selection.
