Different length for Uline (SAPscript)
maybe only a small problem:
I have a SAPscript form. Here I have a line ( ULINE(84) ).
Printing on a HP printer (HPLJ4), everything's fine. Printing as a PDF (PDF1), my line get broken (line break), so I have the last ~4 "ULINES" in a second line.
Sure, I can do somethin like
IF printer = PDF
But that's not very nice!
Any ideas how to prevent the line break?
I guess you use a proportional font like HELVE for the underline characters. This is one of the problems described in SAP note 183948. The different printer language have different widths for underline character for proportional fonts.
Try changing the font used for the underline character to non-proportional font COURIER and you should get the same result for both device types.
