    I am currently using AirPrint Hacktivator with Windows 7 operating system successfully.
    However there are two problems I am experiencing:
    1) If the original document I am printing is larger than A4, then i cannot print the whole page width. i.e. i do not get the full line.
    2) If the original document is longer than A4 then I only get one page printed, it does not carry over on to two pages.
