I don't know if you intentionally replied to my email address and not
the 'notetab' list, but that's what you did so I'll try to respond.
I've been using NoteTab for quite a while and have, in fact, never used
the built-in print routine, other than once or twice for test purposes,
as now. The reason being the self-admitted shortcomings of the built-in
I have always used Txtprint and don't feel I've sacrificed anything by
downloading a 3rd party print utility.
Apparently you don't use clips much or you wouldn't be willing to
continue using NotePad. The inconvenience of switching between the 2
editors is much greater than the inconvenience of downloading Txtprint.
We would all like to see requested improvements in NoteTab and
eventually, I think, we will. In the meantime NoteTab offers so much
more in the way of text manipulation and with template and outline
functionality along with html page building no other single text editor
is very close, at least, none I've downloaded and tried to use.
Thus far, this has been a personal view, now back to the printing problem.
I know nothing of the 'Canon Pixima' you reference but I have used
Canon, Lexmark, Epson and Hewlett-Packard models, all dot-matrix except
the Lexmark and it is a laser and all did a great job of printing, with
the 3rd party utility.
I did try a quick test with the built-in routine with a temporary
document with some very long lines. Since I am not very familiar with
the print routine I looked at all the tabs in the dialog window.
Under the 2nd tab, 'Margins' the first setting is type of measurement,
inches, centimeters and pixels, the second place you can change a
setting is directly to the right of that and it is 'Wordwrap, check or
On my 'HP all-in-one' printing a page with Wordwrap unchecked gave me
the result you describe, long lines truncated at the right margin. With
Wordwrap checked it printed normally. You might check that setting and
give it another try, it's possible your setting might be unchecked.
If you reply, you should reply to the NoteTab group address, many more
users will see it and may be able to offer more experienced suggestions
