Method for Feeding Forms And Cut Sheets in a Printer
This article discloses a technique for loading cut forms or envelopes into a
printer through the manipulation of the forms feed advance key.
A printer operating panel has a key for forms feed advance. Each time the
key is pressed the paper is advanced by the forms length. The form length is
programmable and it can be set to any length by the host. When the printer
detects the end of forms (EOF) condition, then the current length of the form is
saved and a new form length of .576 inches is assumed. This form length of .576 INCHES REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL THE EOF CONDITION IS
CLEARED. The EOF condition is cleared when the paper is loaded into the
printer and then placed on-line to communicate with the host computer. When
the EOF condition is cleared then the saved form length is resumed.
When there is no paper in the printer and the EOF condition has been
detected, the printer is now in condition to handle cut form sheets. The operator
slides the sheet of paper into the front opening of the printer until the paper stops
moving. Then the operator presses the form feed key and the sheet is advanced .576 INCHES. AT THIS TIME, THE PRINT HEAD IS LOCATED JUST BELOW
the edge of the paper which is the physical top of the cut sheet. Once the cut
sheet position is known, the application software on the host computer, or the
operator, can further advance the paper to its desired position. The operator
may elect to press the...
