FWIW, after working with Rev since before it was released and MetaCard
since '97, in my experience all non-scripting-related issues with printing
have been resolved by using the most recent printer drivers.
I can't begin to guess what odd things other programs are doing to get
around the printer driver bugs from earlier releases, but since a new
version has been made available someone out there must have found the bug(s)
from another app, so at least you're not alone.
Thus far with all printing bugs reported here, following the printer
manufacturer's recommendation to use the most recent driver took care of any
such bugs reported.
Worth trying, anyway.
