    I have an HP Photosmart C4380 connected to an iMAC (OS X 10.5.3) which I have tried both wirelessly and direct usb and I can't get my W2000 applications to print in anything other than landscape. I can run MAC Text Edit and MS Notepad with the same test document (typed numbers 1 to 50 down the page) and Text Edit prints OK but Notepad prints the list as though it has placed a scaled down version of my portrait page in the middle of a landscape page.

    What am I doing wrong? Parallels documentation states I should only have a driver for the HP Color Lazer Jet 8500 PS in my Windows side (which I have). In desperation I tried loading my native C4380 driver but it made no difference so I have removed it.

    The plot thickens

    Even my w2000 landscape documents print horizontally across the middle of a portrait sheet of paper. What's going on?
