Large Print Jobs Fail with FMP8.5 on older HP printers

Post

We are finally on the last stretch of convering our huge (73 files) solution from FMP6 to FMP8.5 and have run into a brick wall with printing. FMP6 sent huge files quickly to our printers and the hardcopies instantly came flying out. But with FMP8.5, most jobs over 100 pages just sit in the printer queues or trickle VERY slowly into the printers such that no paper ever gets printed (even after waiting up to an hour). 

 

Computers are various flavors of Macs running OS 10.4 or 10.5 with FMP/FMPA 8.5 clients hanging on Server 8.

Printers are the HP Laserjet 8000 and 8150 workhorses.

 

We also have two Xerox solid ink color printers that seem to handle large jobs ok, but they can't fit our large envelop stock, and it's an expensive waste to use them for these bulk mailings. We need to be able to use the cheaper (and wider) HP printers.

 

Thanks,

Phil.
