|Target Version||Fixed in Version||18.104.22.168|
|Summary||0001933: Printing direct on QSL cards is microscopic|
|Description||Print on a card... the fonts are so small that any reasonable person would need a microscope to read it.|
|Steps To Reproduce||select a QSO to print a card for|
in LB, go to the print QSL card dialog...
Print on card (without the background and all that)
feed QSL card into the envelope slot of a printer
observe microscopic font
|Additional Information||I find this happening with the following:|
HP LaserJet 2200 with the latest HP print driver for that printer.
I have also created a custom paper size in Windows and I select that... because Windows otherwise has no idea what size paper is being used (and this may be part of the problem... there's no QSL-sized paper in Windows by default).
I print directly on a QSL card purchased from cheapQSLs.com using style 122. I've asked them to print my cards WITHOUT their box on the front of the card.
SO... it's exactly the same as if we printed on the blank backside of the QSL card in the middle.

After testing this, it's clear that the printer "thinks it's getting a "8.5 x 11" sheet of paper when trying to print the QSL card. For my printers (DeskJet 3632 and LaserJet 2100), there was no paper size defined for the 3.5" x 5.5" QSL card.
With the LaserJet, I created a custom card size. I haven't done that yet with the DeskJet.
So... for the DeskJet, I'm using a pre-defined paper size that says "6 3/4 Envelope" and that works sometimes... it's a bit unpredictable. I have also found that small envelopes are an effective test for this - even though the size doesn't exactly match.

||I believe this is fixed. Needs testing.|
||Printing onto QSL cards is not available to me. The option was removed some time ago.|
