Print

Use this ELP function to resize the page to any factor independently in X and Y directions. For example a page designed for 80 characters per line at 10 cpi can be resized horizontally to fill printing of 80 characters at now 10.1 cpi.

In order to do so, use at least one out of the following 2 first keys need to be added to the proper ini-file section.

 

PCL_X_Scaling for X printing direction
PCL_Y_Scaling for y printing direction
PCL_ScalingMacros advices ELP to not scale ELP macros


The scaling factor is provided in percentage. Therefore the entry needs to be larger than 0. An entry of 100 means no scaling at all. An entry of 50 will reduce the page to 50% of its original size, still printed on the upper left corner. Refer to ELP commands for repositioning the data on the page.
 
If the key PCL_ScalingMacros is used and turned OFF, the scaling factors do not apply in ELP forms, the so called *.mac files.
