Hi!
I am trying to figure out how to get a "Get Well Soon" printed off of my computer with mirror image the correct way. Any suggestions, I know that this is easily done, but this is my first time and need some help! Not good at free hand cursive and printed out a beautiful font with these words and would love to use it TODAY!

Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

Pinky--
I have a Lexmark 6100 series printer and I use Windows XP. With my setup, all I have to do is hit print, go into preferences, and there is a tab that says "Layout." From there I can choose the "mirror" setting. This is how I've done it in the past. Perhaps your setup has a similar setting.

If you are using publisher you can click on flip horizontal and it will be reversed.

Hope this helps, : )

Do you have XP or something older? If you have something older, click here:

(You will move ahead 4 pictures)

This will work regardless of which software you are using.

Thanks! I was over at a friend's house and her computer was not working correctly. I think it was older! We figured it out, her DH showed us what to do. Lucy and Ethel with Ricky! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Dawn, I will go look at what you suggested as well. At home I haveCorel Draw, my husband and I used to work for ad agencies and have lots of equipment for drawing and designing! I can't wait to get to it!

Thanks again everyone, I love this site!!!

Pinky!

I DO NOT like XP! It came with my new computer ~ of course I haven't been able to print since I got the new computer either! I have a great printer scanner at home and even with the new XP compatible software I had to buy for it - it still won't communicate with XP. icon_cry.gif

I learn everything the hard way!

I have XP Professional- I love it way better than 98. It's a hell of a lot more stable than 98, and way better than NT was. I think of XP as having the security of 2000 but the ease of use like 98. And I have only heard BAD things about ME- not to mention there is hardly any support for ME or for 98. I have a computer game that was made to run it 98, but it runs way better in XP.
Debbie- what kind of printer do you have? You shouldn't have to buy software for it to make it work. Let me know maybe I can find the right drivers for you that you need.

I have an HP T45 All in One. It's a great printer, scanner, fax with very nice picture printing abilities. The tell me it's "old" because it was purchased 4 years ago. icon_mad.gif I'm sorry ~ I did not spend several hundred dollars on a home printer to replace it every couple years! Because the original software was pre-XP I went to the HP website and downloaded the XP driver. It did not work after an hour of downloading (i still have dial-up at home) so I ordered the new driver on disk - $10 or so. I installed it - it still doesn't work! I'm very aggrivated - the new computer cost plenty - I don't have the $$$ to pay someone to come out and try to figure out why this thing won't work! icon_cry.gif

Got it- will email as soon as I find something.

jscakes Posted 1 Mar 2005 , 7:51pm

just a question...thecakemaker, have you checked to make sure the new printer is now the default printer? I ran into the same problem during a switchout with a printer...my sister helped me on that one and I was sooooo glad!

thecakemaker Posted 1 Mar 2005 , 8:19pm

I wish it was that easy icon_lol.gif it is set up as the default printer. Thanks though!

Debbie

jscakes Posted 2 Mar 2005 , 2:24am

Debbie, What's really bad is when you do locate the problem it turns out to be something very simple....but aggravating! Hope you locate the problem soon. icon_smile.gif
