When the document orientation was portrait but the n-up signature resulted landscape the printer would not correctly print landscape. It would be in the lower left-hand corner and run off the right-hand side. It would refuse to print correctly even if you manually set the printer for landscape output! Now this used to work without a problem, and trying to determine when this issue first appeared and it seemed to coincide with Windows 10 Creator Update.
I fixed the problem by reviewing the printer properties and noticed the printer driver was change with the update. It was set to the HP Universal Printing PS driver. When I reset the driver back to the HP LaserJet PCL6 driver for my printer series now my landscape n-up signatures print correctly without any intervention. There seems to be a problem with HP Universal Printing PS driver.
To clarify, the form was portrait with dims narrow width longer height:
But when using an n-up signature that results in a landscape page
Would fail printing on page as shown where page boundaries is in red
However, which is interesting is if the original document is landscape in orientation such as
And I do a n-up that changes the orientation to portrait, it works as expected
Strange. Anyway there is no problem with the printer specific PCL driver
I took up looking in Windows 10 the for I'm talking about has nothing to do with Corel or any application is has to do with Windows itself. I may need to load a PS driver to search more as I only have PS device as digital front end systems.
The form was actually in Windows it told the driver what page sizes were available to it. This started in NT and I believe I accessed it in Windows 7 once. Anyway what this did was resolve an issue with portrait and landscape in PS drivers. PS drivers (really don't get portrait or landscape) they use rotation and will see landscape as portrait and visa versa, where Windows only truly sees pages that are taller then wide as portrait unless you specifically create a form that is wider then tall and label its rotation as portrait.
I know this is weird but I discovered this back in the days of the Agfa 7000 images setter. The image setter was I believe 18" x 25" but to use it I had to create a form in Windows for the drive that was 18 x 25 portrait or the PS driver rotated the output every time.
