Epson 9880

Is anyone using an Epson 9880 through Nexus?  I was wondering if Nexus was able to drive it at all.  I see that it has a driver for a 9800 but i'm not sure what the deal is with the 9880.  Thanks

ok we are driving the Epson 9880 but we have one problem.  When we print a small proof the printhead travels all the way across the printer instead of staying on top of the image area.  This adds a lot of time to the printing process so is there a way to prevent the head from traveling all the way across the printer and stay in the image area?

I'm not driving any proofers with Nexus so this may not be helpful but...what size of spool file is Nexus generating. If it's creating a file the same width as the paper then I think it would do it. If it's just generating a spool file the same size as your image then I'm not sure why it woould do this. Have you talked to support about it?
