Please elaborate. My experience with printer drivers is both windows and mac. Only on Mac it is a pain in the ....
I use LR for printing every day and use templates etc to the max. No issues as reported by the OP.
I use windows.
I think the point being made is that after years and years "in the business", printer companies haven't been able to solve the problems that show up for MANY people.....not ALL people. Sometimes hardware, sometimes incompatible with software. In general, my previous Eps 3800 was AOK, except once in a while, it would print only half an image. Just out of the blue. Random. Replaced it with an Eps P800. It occasionally
randomly ripped paper in the sheet feeder, would not recognize that there was paper that had been loaded, sometimes would advance the paper and move the print head as normal, then "finish" and eject the print, only there was zero ink applied, and finally, sometimes I'd only get half an image printed. Just received a warranty replacement. Hopefully I'll now become one of the fortunate people with no problems.
Oh, and by the way....I've registered my "professional" products with them telling them what my email is and what OS I use. Why is it that when they produce a new driver version or firmware I don't get an email notice from them? Poor business practice.
