Hi is anyone using the print facilities using a dot matrix printer under the emulation? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks Thomas,
I have used the suggested method of stting up the prefs on the Amiga side & can get things to print from Opus only after you go out of the emulation then the printer will start printing ie back on the window side. Any suggestions? I am using a Panasonic KXP2180 printer.
Thanks hugh

This is a bug in WinXP. Check the Amiga Programs folder, there should be something like WinXPPrintHelper or so. Also check WinUAE's GUI (press F12). There should be a button to start printing somewhere.

Thanks the "flush print job" sends it to the printer. Any idea how to trigger the "auto flush" facilities to work?

Hi Thomas,
We have another problem. We use SuperbasePro4 when we display to the screen all is OK, when we print to the native Amiga all is OK. When we print using the emulation SuperBase hangs up. If we send it to a file it strips the position codes but will print, but not in the correct layout. It appears not to like the emulation. Any suggestions? Thanks

Yes we tried the tips & can get things to the printer OK, its the layout & it looks like a compatablity isue between Superbase & the emulation. Thanks
