WordStar Printer Information


WordStar works with over one hundred printers.

Refer to the following chart, Printers on the WordStar Printer Selection Menu, for a list of the printers on the menu and information on how they work with WordStar. When you install WordStar, simply choose your printer from the Printer Selection Menu.

Even if your printer isn't on the Printer Selection Menu, it may work like a printer that is on the menu. See the chart titled Additional Printers that Work with WordStar for a list of printers that work like printers on the menu. When WordStar asks you to choose a printer, choose the printer that works like yours.

If your printer isn't on either of these charts, you can choose Typewriter Printer (if your printer can backspace) or Draft Printer (if your printer can't backspace). These choices may not take full advantage of all your printer's features, but they will work with almost any printer.

If you have a serial printer, use WSCHANGE to change your default printer port. If you have a sheet feeder or a laser printer, be sure to answer yes to the "Use form feeds" prompt at print time, or change the default answer to this prompt.

Refer to the README file for more information on how printers work with WordStar.

Note: The printer you choose during installation becomes your default printer. However, when you print a document, you can choose any printer from the list. Remember that most customizations you make with WSCHANGE affect any printer you use.
