My prints from Illustrator on my Epson P400 are printing very jagged or pixelated. It's worse on angled positions and text. Prints smooth from Acrobat, but I'd really like to print directly from Illustrator of possible.

 

all help is appreciated. Thanks!

Here's an image of a print from Illustrator that shows the issue. The file is a vector and should be smooth as butter.

If that printer prints well from Acrobat, but not from Illustrator, then this points to it not supporting Postscript.

defaultjno,

 

I am afraid it would take a WorkForce Pro, or something from elsewhere. But you can try to ask Epson, or see whether there is some well hidden PostScript (emulating) driver to download.
