all I want to know is if my printer will print in poster mode, and can't seem to find an answer anywhere on the HP site. Very disappointed by how unfriendly this site is.

nice thought, but incomplete and lackluster info.

I do dislike giving anything than a less than stellar review. However, I had hoped for so much more from this article, or at least inbedded links to find the information suggested by the title.
For example, the Flyer and Brochure Paper:
Printing successfully on this paper is a process requiring much patience. My printer (1220cse large format, but old-school, and yet still a Rockstar of a machine), has a drop down menu of paper types that makes my eyes start to twirl in opposite directions. However, none of them are for F&B paper. It took me (and as a perfectionist I do not exaggerate here), a possible half box of paper to negotiate the settings in the dialogue boxes in effort to achieve the high-quality prints I was after. (Let me say, when you DO get it right, this paper is a GEM!!!! I probably would have not been able to apply for Architecture Graduate School without it!!)
The article however, doesn't even suggest ONE appropriate setting, much less provide a link to the Trouble Shooting Article, or anything else actually helpful.
As HP knows well, there are plenty of settings options in the drop-down menus for these printers. I would like it not just say, "Set on 'Best Quality' for photo paper." --it's simply falling short on the capabilities both of the papers HP supplies, and the fantastic printers.
HP makes great products, these articles should be Really helping us learn how to use them to their fullest!!!
