Scrambled Print on Gemini

Knowledge Base > Printers > Scrambled Print on Gemini

in Printers

Print is shifted, or scrambled when Gemini Control Panel and Print Manager are running (Gemini Driver V1.1).

Status button in the Gemini Control Panel was pressed during printing. This causes a the query of the printer status to become part of the bitmap image that is being sent to the printer.

1.) Do not press the status button during printing (or while data is being sent to the printer).
2.) Turn Print Manager off. This will not allow you to access the Gemini Control Panel until print data has finished transmission to the printer.

3.)Turn Fast Print on in the Gemini Control Panel. This effectively bypasses Print Manager, which will ,again, not allow you to access the Gemini Control Paned until print data has finished transmission to the printer.

Turning fast print on in the Gemini Control Panel when printing records from a database will print each record faster, but will not allow access to the control panel. If the application does not give a print status, there is no way to get one, because Gemini Fast Print is a foreground application.

If Print Manager is turned on, (with fast print in the Gemini turned off) the status is given in Print Manager, but a longer time to print each record is needed. (note, if Print Manager is on there should be no need to get the printer status.)
