printer very noisy ???

Hello, I have a TEC B-443 printer to print bar codes I use a report to print bar codes with a font I find on NET (EAN13) If I do first a preview and then print, all is ok If I dont do preview and print directly, printer is very noisy and slower !!! Do you have an idea ??? I don’t find ESC code to use all function of the printer, if you have that, thanks to send me. But why difference between with preview and without??? Thx

I think the preview uses the default printers driver. Maybe something to do with that? /Lars

Is barcode printer is as default sys printer or you change it somewhere in code?

Report is associated with this printer but printer in not defaut printer in windows (2.6E)
