A Print style defines the page format for a printer; the number of columns (page width), and the number of rows (page length).
Each printer type (i.e., each printer) can have one or more associated print styles.
Print styles allow you to setup report dimensions on a variety of printers. You can tailor your page setups while providing consistent-looking reports from printer-to-printer.
- For example, users may wish to print a menu report with a wider left margin to allow for hole punching the paper.
At report submission time, users select the style in which to output the report.
- As System Administrator you register this new style, which users can then access if the printer (type) supports it.
- Only styles available on the destination printer are displayed.
- Some concurrent programs predefine either the printer or the print style, and these values may not be changed.
