Have done a new install of windows xp and typical install of iseries access for windows V5R3 and using the print screen icon it prints out dots instead of ASCII characters. Have looked through lots of settings but can't find anything! any ideas

Does xp print normally? Initially, it sounds like a windows print problem. I'll look tomorrow at my settings for printing to see if anything jumps out.

Yeah printing works fine in XP, well from all other apps, ISeries printing goes direct to printer. I installed it on my laptop and the print screen works fine. I used to have V4R4 running on the XP machines and it worked properly. The layout is correct but only prints dots!

Here are my settings...
Under File, Printer Setup.
Use win default printer (nothing else checked)
Click Setup...
Graphic tab...
Graphic mode = XL
Font tab...
Download as bitmap
Screen font substitution

Although I'm not sure that any of those would cause an issue, you can check.
