Receipt printer will NOT wrap

I have an epson tm88 III and the receipt refuses to wrap long lines of text to the next line. It prints the line out to the end of the line and truncates. I am using epson OPOS. I have removed the "~" character
from the format line. I read in a previous post that if you are using OPOS then long lines will not wrap. Can someone confirm this?
I have seen some examples in the posts where people use: <ALIGNMENT> "<" </ALIGNMENT>
This will not load in my RMS manager. It says the xml is not good.
The following works but does not wrap: <ALIGNMENT> "&LT;" </ALIGNMENT>
Thanks

Mine seem to wrap just fine.

Thanks for verifying that it does work with OPOS. Could you post a sample xml that wraps? Does yours have "<" or "&lt;"

It's just the standard 40 column receipt on the RMS Disc we are using. The newsgroups keep telling me the file is too large to upload.

I use Epson TM88 with OPUS and it will not wrap. If you want the description to wrap you will have to use a windows driver instead of OPUS. There has been a lot of discussion on this ng about this issue. I personally have learned to live with this because OPUS was much easier to set up with a cash drawer and Pole display. Having said that, there seems to be a lot more limitations on the printing with OPUS than with a windows driver. So if that is important to you, you will probably have to go with a windows driver instead of OPUS drivers. Craig

Again, we are using the OPOS drive with the same printer and standard receipt. It wraps fine. Not sure what the difference in setup could be. We just got ours a month ago so we could have some sort of fix preinstalled for us.

Thanks for the replies. Let's compare: I am running RMS 1.3. I have the latest Epson OPOS driver (without the service packs, I am going to install those next) I changed the template to have <ALIGNMENT>"&lt;"</ALIGNMENT> Still no wrap.
If I were to try the windows driver, what windows driver would I install?

Morris,
Are you sure you are using an OPOS driver as I've never seen RMS' OPOS implementation do line wrap? Many articles in the KB say the same, OPOS doesn't line wrap.

Everything is running through the OPOS setup program. Where are you looking to see exactly what driver is being used? The printer does not show up in device manager since it's running through OPOS.

I've been through this as a dealer and with Microsoft tech support. The OPOS drivers simply will not wrap. But we found that the OPOS drivers are MUCH preferable for performance. So we tried various tricks like trying to print the first half of the field on one line and the second half on the second line but the receipt parser uses a basic version of XML and not the XML extensions that support text substrings. We wanted to print the extended description which was too long. We ended up splitting the extended description and placing it in the subdescription 1, 2, and 3 fields. then we printed each subdescription text on a separate line. So creativity pays off.

that is how we have worked around it also, using as much of each description as possible, it almost looks as if you get the text to wrap

My mistake. You are completely correct. We are using the OPOS driver and it does NOT wrap. What I was seeing were comment lines that the cashier had added.
