Any advice on allowed PCL Macro Commands?

Any advice on allowed PCL Macro Commands?

Hello All,

My Application produces a PCL Form Macro which in turn invokes other macros which print data onto the form. I have observed occasionally that when I execute the form macro, the 'data' macros don't always print unless I make them permanent macros, which suggests a soft 'reset' is occuring during processing of the form macro.

My PCL5 Comparison Guide 'suggests' that the Unit of Measure command causes a reset, but that only seems to happen when the Unit of Measure differs from the Raster Graphics Resulution setting.

Does anyone have any advice as far as PCL commands or command combinations which may trigger a reset?
