HP Designjet 650C Printer - Aldus Freehand Software Issues

Aldus Freehand Software v 2.0.2, PostScript(TM) Errors Occur or File Will Not Print
ISSUE: While printing from Aldus Freehand software v 2.0.2, a file generates PostScript errors or will not print.
SOLUTION: This version of Freehand is Adobe(R) PostScript Level I and is not supported with the HP LaserJet driver v 8.0. Upgrade to the most current version of Freehand.
Aldus Freehand Software v 3.1.1, Problems Rotating From Front Panel
ISSUE: There are problems rotating from the printer if the front panel Page Format/Size is set to Software.
SOLUTION: Set the Page Format/Size on the Front Panel of the printer to the actual size of the paper (for example, ARCH, ANSI).
Rotation is only supported on roll media, not cut sheet media. Rotation is generally not supported in PostScript, although it may work in some applications with a specific Paper Size selected and Rotate set to 90 degrees at the printer.
Also select the appropriate media size in the Page Setup dialog box.
SUMMARY: The printer needs to know the paper size ahead of time in order to adjust and set aside the memory necessary for the rotation.
Aldus Freehand Software v 3.1.1, Cannot Select Correct Paper Size
ISSUE: Customer is not able to select the proper paper size.
SOLUTION: Upgrade to Aldus Freehand software v 4.0. No PPD support is available for the HP Designjet 650c printer in Aldus Freehand software v 3.1.1.
WORKAROUND: From the File menu select Print. Within the Print dialog box select Change. Select the General PPD from the Printer Type selection.
Aldus Freehand Software v 3.1.1 Banding in Gradient Shading
ISSUE: Banding appears in gradient shaded fills in Aldus Freehand software v 3.1.1.
SOLUTION: Upgrade to Aldus Freehand software v 4.0.
WORKAROUND: Create a special text file using TeachText called userprep. Store this in the same folder as the application’s executable file. The code is as follows:
/calcgraysteps {256 dup maxsteps gt {pop maxsteps} if % stack: clippedgrays} bdf
Aldus Freehand Software v 3.11 General Postscript Errors Occur While Printing
ISSUE: General PostScript errors occur while printing from Aldus Freehand software v 3.11.
SOLUTION: Deselect Unlimited Downloadable Fonts.
Aldus Freehand Software v 3.11, Document Will Not Print
ISSUE: The document will not print and PostScript errors are not generated.
SOLUTION: Do not use the Layout pop-up menu or the Layout options in the Print dialog box.
Aldus Freehand Software v 4.0 Patterns of Filled Objects Rotate 90 Degrees
ISSUE: Patterns of filled objects rotate 90 degrees from how they appear on the screen.
WORKAROUND: Set the printer through the front control panel to rotate 90 degrees. Select Page Format, Rotate, and then 90. No permanent solution is currently available.
