Printing Problems

If you are having trouble printing Tom Schneider's papers from the PostScript forms, (printer blinks but does not produce anything), it may be that you trying to print on A4 paper.

There is a piece of PostScript code that does this inside the papers:

%%BeginPaperSize: Letter
/setpagedevice where {
pop 1 dict dup /PageSize [ 612 792 ] put setpagedevice
} {
statusdict /lettertray known {
statusdict begin lettertray end
/letter where { pop letter } if
} {
/letter where {
pop letter
} {
statusdict /setpage known {
statusdict begin
612 792 0 setpage
end
} if
} ifelse
} ifelse
} ifelse
%%EndPaperSize
If you remove this, it may help.

Another solution may be to look at the paper first in GhostView and then to print to A4 from there. Unfortunately this did not work for John Markham.
