Welcome to the Ranch

That is far too difficult a question for “beginning”, so I shall move it. Not sure where is best, maybe “general computing”?

Is Jasper Reports the only app that is causing this problem? What happens when other apps print to that printer?

If all apps have that problem, then I would suspect the printer driver. If only Jasper Reports has the issue, then you might need the Jasper team to look at the issue.

I have uses Jasper quite a lot and one thing that we have learned over the years is that when using a LFP such as the Epson LX-300+II of similar, the font and character tables that are used makes a huge impact.

If you use one of the ISO-charsets, such as the ISO Latin 1 in Jasper and the printer is set to say PC 437 or something similar, then you might get that behavior.
