HP LaserJet 5 M -- its old but uses very little ink so we are trying to use it instead of the newer ink sucking Canon printer.

We have downloaded the latest drivers but the printer is no longer supported by HP for Windows 7.

Anyway I did a few experiments with both printers.

This is what happens sometimes when I use legal paper. The first column of pages doesn't line up with the second column. Off by about 1/8-1/4 inch.
The third lines up the first but the fourth doesn't.

It seems to be okay if I use letter size but now I don't trust it.

What should be the distance between the alignment marks for both legal and letter? I use the L shaped mark.

Hi,

There should be no difference between legal and letter size paper. The program always uses 1/4" margins for every paper size. If the marks are off, it is usually a result of how the printer pulls the paper through the printer.

That is what I thought too about the way the printer pulls the paper. But its strange that its for legal and the even numbered columns.
