Reports print really slowly like printing a image

For some reason, when I print out reports it takes forever to complete. The printer treats the reports like it's printing a photo or other image and doesn't print both directions, etc.

How do I get reports to print normally?

    Check the Properties of the printer. Make sure it didn't get set to photo-like settings by accident. Set it to plain paper and normal print quality if it's set otherwise.

    Print quality is plain paper and print quality is set at draft.

    Well, then, for anyone here to help, you'll need to supply more information.
    • What make & model printer?
    • What driver is the printer running?
    • What port is the printer on?
    • Is bidirectional printing enabled in printer properties?
    • Do other programs print acceptably fast?
    Etc., etc. The more info you supply, the more likely someone familiar with your printer might spot something.
