Printing More than One Screen on a Page

If you want to print two or more screens per page, use the BEL command in the PDF to specify the number of blank lines to insert (instead of a Form Feed between two successive screens). You must coordinate this modification with the usage of the LPI and MPL parameters in the PDF (see Field Names of Printer Definition Files).

Note: This specific use of the BEL command is applicable only for printing screens using the Print Screen Collection function.

Setting the value BEL=FF will send a Form Feed, while the value BEL=00 does not insert a Form Feed or a Line Feed.

Values between 00 and FF send that number of blank lines between successive screens. For example, BEL=02 inserts two blank lines between two successive screens. Thus, more than one screen can be printed on a single page.
