    If all the fields have Non-True Type Fonts (For example Courier New) then report will print ultra fast on Dot Matrix printers. Another thing is if font size is 10 then printer prints whole line in single go rather than moving its head twice on each row.


    So For fast printing i recommend Courier New font With Size 10 for all the feilds.

    Also you can use escape sequence settings in the generic text only printer properties for Bold / Double width / double strike using the last tab properties. without  affecting speed of the dot matrix printer. Also u can choose if fast draft is applicable.
