Hi Luke,

Sadly seems like converting to PDF will fail terrible for DOT printer due concept and current technology.

Seems like my only option will be to write a Java and send the data in ASCII to the printer as is the only way to get accurate printing. (Choose Java as is a piece of cake with it :) )

I'm facing a big issue when printing to DOT printers. I have several Epson LX-300+II and when printing directly from windows (with Cristal Reports) the output is great.

Issue comes when printing either directly from Odoo or from the generated PDF file. I noted that the output is the worst, no matter what type of font I set. What I noted is also that Odoo DPI truly have some kind of influence on it and the result is bad either increasing or decreasing the the DPI...

Does anyone have any other technique, method or idea in order to make a smooth printing with those DOT printers?
