APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
198-column spooled files generated with the following attributes
print in landscape and in a compressed font without truncation
on Letter sized (8.5 x 11 inch) paper when using Host Print
Transform (HPT):

Printer device type . . . . . . . . . : *SCS
Page size:
Length . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 66
Width . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 198
Lines per inch . . . . . . . . . . . . : 6
Characters per inch . . . . . . . . . : 15
Font:
Identifier . . . . . . . . . . . . . : *CPI
Page rotation . . . . . . . . . . . . : *AUTO

but these spooled files are printed in landscape with truncation
when printed on A4 sized (21.0cm x 29.7cm or 8.3 x 11.7 inch)
paper.

It appears that Host Print Transform (HPT) is requesting an 18
CPI font, but PCL5-capable laser printers are printing in a 17.7
CPI font, which is not small enough to print all 198 columns on
A4 sized paper without truncation.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE59376 :
-----------------------------
With the requested page width and configured paper size, HPT
calculates that 198 characters will just barely fit if printed
at 18 CPI.  However, a wide range of PCL printers produce text
that is just a little bit wider, causing it to be truncated.
HPT will request 19 CPI for this case.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE59376 :
--------------------------------
None.

Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI47007 :
=================================================

If this PTF is applied or removed as a "Delayed" PTF, which requires an
IPL, no special consideration is necessary. If this PTF is applied or
removed "Immediate" and you want to make use of the new longer lengths
for the INITPRT or RESETPRT workstation customizing object tags, any
writers which use workstation customizing objects with longer INITPRT
or RESETPRT strings, will need to be ended. When the writers are
started again, the PTF code will be active.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
