Description

Name: jk109818			Date: 07/02/2003


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.2-beta"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Envinronment Standard Edition (build 1.4.2-beta-b19)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-beta-b19, mixed mode)

Also tested under 1.4.1_02 build 1.4.1_02-b06


FULL OS VERSION :
Linux 2.4.2-2 #1 Sun Apr 8 20:41:30 EDT 2001 i686 unknown

This bug DOES NOT exist in Windows versions of Java, just Linux.

EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
Printer Tested: Lexmark Optra E310


A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Cannot print to legal size paper and get correct output.

We are currently trying to use the new Printing API of ver 1.4.x to print to legal (8.5" x 14") paper. When legal paper is selected from the Print Dialog the correct print area size is returned to the java program but the output from the printer seems to be shifted up about 3".



STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1- Run the included sample program.
2- Choose the "Print" menu option.
3- Go to the "Page Setup" tab
4- Choose "Legal" from the "Size" combobox.
5- Click Print

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
The sample program contains a JTextArea that is set to be approximately the size of the printable area on a legal sheet of paper with 1" margins.  So we expect that when the print menu option is clicked and legal paper is selected that this text area (with all 27 numbered lines) print on the legal page with 1" margins all around.
ACTUAL -
When the above steps are followed, the printed area seems to be shifted up the page about 3 inches so that at the top of the page there is no 1" margin and the text starts at line #6.  At the bottom there is a 4" margin instead of just a 1" margin.

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
We did a little bit of investigating into the Postscript file that is created by the Print routine if you print to a file.  It seems like the postscript file is missing some of the information that it needs to tell the printer to print on legal paper the: "<< /PageSize [612 1008] /ManualFeed true >> setpagedevice" tag is one that is missing but there may be others.  If you manually edit the ps file to have these correct tags then the page is printed correctly.
