Problem with SET MARGIN

By using the PRINT statement as follows:

OPEN#9: PRINTER
SET #9: MARGIN 150

the True Basic Silver software program does not recognize the above settings but instead remains at the default setting of 80 characters. We're using an OKI Turbo (13 inch carriage)dot matrix printer.

Please send info to correct this problem!

Re: SET #9: MARGIN n

H A MACHINE TOO ... After your two program lines, add the following program lines:

ASK #9: MARGIN m

ASK #9: ZONEWIDTH z

PRINT m, z

and see what you get for m and z. Then tell us what you got in another Forum message.

Remember, z cannot be greater than m; read about the restrictions in your TB manual. Regards ... Tom M

re: set margin

Don't know. Set Margin works fine with my HP 2175--in other words if I set margin to 100 and print a 100 character string it tries to print on one line (even though it runs out of paper). If I reduce to margin 80 it wraps the last 20 characters. This is with Gold V-5.5b22. It may be the printer or it might be your version of Silver (what version?).
