Subject: RE: Tech: Epson print drivers a load of crap
The template is in Paint Shop Pro and has a 3/4 inch margin each side.

Epson gives me just over 7/8 inch on the left and just under 5/8 on the right.

I certainly wouldn't buy Epson again, whoever heard of a printer where you couldn't set the print margins? I used to be able to do that on my old dot matrix over 20 years ago.

Using a template makes sense if you have twenty images on a page, and paint shop pro uses that method. You get a blank template to start with on the print layout page and it is a blank 8 1/2 X 11 sheet. It works work fine on my HP printer. Trouble is that that printer is in Pennsylvania and I'm in Colorado at the moment using Rachael's set up.

Word and Works also use templates.

One would expect to be able to adjust the alignment of one's output on any printer.

You just can't do it with the Epson R300.   I've received one response from Epson which simply states that you cant do it. Then no reply to my further email.

I eventually used John's method and cut them out using the paper knife and ignored the perforations. I'll have to get some plain card stock and save the perforated stuff 'till I get me own printer back.
