What might cause the footer to extend past the bottom of the print area?

I apparently have done something to cause the footer boarder to extend past the bottom margin causing extra blank pages to print. What should I look for? (This just showed up).

i encountered the same prob when addtextat is called after currenty has passed the bottom of the page. I donīt hav blank pages, but several pages (depending of how many lines are put with addtextat) with one line or parts of the addtextat lines.

Be sure to not add text after the bottom margin.

I will search and add code to avoid blank pages.

Waty,

The extra pages only occur when you actually print the document, it appears normal in the preview window.

There is no text close to the bottom of the page except for the footer besides I wold have thought the prASCopyPage parameter would have handled this correctly.

Waty,

The problem exists when I set the PaperSize to prPSLetter, it does not have this behavior when the default is allowed to be used. I ned to be able to set it to Letter size to keep some printers from stopping and asking for A4 size or to continue (some won't continue).

You can set the papersize in your code.
If you select another papesize in the printer setup form, of course, the size will change, and if it decrease, the problem occurs.

I have done a fix here to avoid printing of extra page, but not yet released in the beta area as I need to do some more tests before.

Waty,

Some further testing using your latest beta version shows the same problem with extra blank pages BUT the extra pages only show up when I print to an inkjet printer (mine is a HP882C) they do not show up when printing to a laser printer.

Do you select the printer within the setup form?
This could be an explanation, because each printer has his own pagesize definition...

Waty,

I've done it both ways. If I let the code take the default value and then set the Paper Size to letter in the setup form the extra pages are generated(at least on my inkjet), If I leave it at A4 then all is OK.

The biggest issue was the fact that on some (not all) of the laser printers here when the document is sent out to print with a request for A4 size they will stop and wait for some A4 paper to be inserted. The OKIDATA 24 and HP 4200 behaved this way, an OKIDATA B61000 seemed to ignore the request for A4 size or interpreted it to be letter because it would print with either selected and never slow down.

If you figure out what the problem might be let me know.
