Tweak the HWMargins in the PPD [solved]
Posted by: billatq ()

I noticed that the PPD that ships with foo2zjs has HWMargins as:

*HWMargins: 12.00 12.00 12 12

With these settings, the page is slightly misaligned, which is problematic when printing things that require precise alignment such as labels.

The HP-vended PPD (as part of HPIJS) uses these margins:

*HWMargins: 18.00 14.40 18.00 14.40

I've found that those margins work well for me with Avery 5160 labels. I can edit my PPD file everytime I reinstall, but I figured this might be useful for someone else. (Or perhaps as a bug report? I couldn't find a template anywhere)
