It seems better in Rev, to me, although I have not done much printing
in either environment. If I recall, in Realbasic, printing basically
hands you a graphics context and you have to draw into it, unless you
happen to have a view already containing what you want.
In Rev. you can print content at the level of stack, card, or field,
and there are a fair number of commands for controlling the print
output (margins, headers, scaling).
