      Description of the issue

      When printing to a printer that was created using the HP Universal Print Driver (UPD), the printing process takes about 20 times longer to complete than when using a standard HP driver.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Setup a compatible HP printer using the Universal Print Driver (I've been using the PCL6 one)

      2. Open a filemaker database

      3. Print.

      Expected result

      Quickly print

      Actual result

      Slowly print

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      There is no error.

      Workaround

      Use a model specific HP driver.
