Of course, that assumes that you don't need the print rotated. If you need
it rotated, there's presently no way to do that directly.

I did one little project that printed a bank deposit slip that needed
rotated digits printed across the bottom for the total deposit amount. I
made BMP's of each individual rotated digit and just put them on the page as
images. It works but it took a bit of tinkering to setup. And it was only 10
characters that I needed.

Hi Ed,

No, DPSpool doesn't have a vertical printing option.

However, you might be able to accomplish that in DP itself by setting a
field format in a report as A1A0 or A1An. You could then reposition the
cursor using DPSpool if necessary.

Hi Tim,


I am hoping that DPSpool has a print option for vertical printing.  Does it?


Thanks for your advise.
