SUMMARY

When you send printer escape information in a print stream to a Windows NT Generic Text Only driver, additional form feed may occur after the job has been completed.

MORE INFORMATION

The raster unidriver, RASDD, automatically appends a form feed to all jobs to ensure that the data gets sent to the printer. If an application developer uses the Escape or ExtEscape function, and includes all of the necessary sequences to print the page, an additional FormFeed or EjectPage will force another page to be printed. For additional information on the functions mentioned, please consult the Win32 SDK documentation.

NOTE: This fix only pertains to the Generic/Text Only driver
