DOS2USB has several options, which are helpful for different conditions.
INK SAVE MODE
This option is usually selected by default. By selecting (tick) this option your printout will become darker than normal.
PRINT ON FORM FEED
This option means “Print on Form Feed.” The ASCII value for FF is 12 (decimal) and is
also known as the EJECT OR NEW PAGE CHARACTER. Form feed is an
end-of-page marker for the character mode printer. Many
applications use this character to tell the printer that a page
is over, so skip to the next page and start the printing on the
First line of next page. We have used it in the same manner for
some special requirement, if you tick this option, then it has a
special meaning: the printing will not start until it receives
this character at end of a page. If this character does not
arrive from your DOS application then DOS2USB will never print
that job, unless you remove the tick.
Don’t tick this option, unless you face a problem and then only tick this option after getting confirmation from us.
START WITH WINDOWS
By selecting this option, our software will start automatically when
Windows starts. So use it as your convenience.
REDUCE LINE GAP
Your DOS application is designed to print on 12-inch paper. So when you try to print on
11.69 or 11-inch paper then some of the last lines will go on the next page. By reducing the gap between the lines, all of
the lines will print on one page.
Many newer computer systems do not have an LPT parallel port.& Some users may attach
a parallel port LPT printer by using a converter cable with a
USB connection to the computer and a parallel (Centronics)
connector to the printer. By using this cable, print jobs
from Windows applications will go to this printer, but your
DOS print job still will not print to that printer.& DOS2USB
can print to that printer in GUI mode but it will print that job
slowly because it is sending dots instead of characters. If
you use a USB to LPT converter cable to attach a dot matrix
printer then his option will help.
Select this option only if you are using a dot matrix printer or we suggest you to do so.
IF you are using a dot matrix printer then, and only then, select this option and select your desired printer.
Your print job will go to that printer and you will get fast printing on your dot matrix printer even if it is
installed on a USB port with a converter cable or installed on a network.
