When doing successive prints (on Brother DCP-585CW) I regularly get a page break at approx 3/4 of the page and the remains of the image is printed on a new page. This happens mostly when putting more than one picture on a page. Is there a workaround?
Thanks

John,
Not familiar with that printer, so I will suggest two things to check.
Go to EDIT Preferences, Printing Options, and set the Format to RAW under Print Spooler.
The second thing to check/set is UNCHECKING the box that says Enable Advanced Features, in Printer properties Usually found in Control Panel, or Printers and Faxes,,,, depending on the version of Windows

That should do it in most cases.
Qimage is sending a lot of data, but those two settings are where we start.

Ok, now we can point you to two loaded articles that Mike Chaney wrote to address these issues.
Read them both and see if you can find some item that pertains to your driver settings or your work flow.

John

The Brother is an A4 printer, so I don't think you have the spool problems Fred was referring to, it's more likely to be a driver issue.
If you turn on the print preview in the printer driver, do you see the problem? Downloading the latest driver may help.
