Since I reinstalled Powerpoint for XP I have not been able to print out PPT slides in landscape format. They always come out in portrait format, and if I don\'t select \"scale to fit\", the right and left sides get cut off, too. I have tried every possible combination of options and tickboxes etc. but to no avail.

Can anyone tell me what settings are required to get a landscape A4 printout of a slide? At the moment I am printing \"as Notizzettel\", but that is usually to small to work with properly.


PS This was posted on partnertrans before, but no real results emerged.

This is very strange Mar 3, 2003

As PP slides are usually LANDSCAPE.

To be honest, I never have seen a tick box for landscape or portrait in PP.

It seems, that your PowerPoint is not automatically changing the pronter setting. This may be caused by an incompatible printer driver. Check out if you have the newest drvier for your printer and if it is properly set.

I have had some problems (but not of this kind) with Hewlett Packard, Brother and Lexmark printer drivers. Those problems were very different each time, but the were allways causeb by the printer driver.

As you upgraded to XP, I assume you used the native Windows XP driver, which is mostly not the best solution. A printer driver from the printer manufacturer is usually better, but you must pay attention to get a proper driver for Windows XP.
