I'm having difficulty with a printing situation...
Rev 2.2.1, Mac OS 10.3.4
I have a field containing columns of data, formatted by script using
spaces... the textFont of the field is set to 9 point Monaco, so fixed
width, to keep the columns straight.
Using revPrintField, the result on paper is larger (I'd say 10 point)
and the the font, even though clearly still monaco, is clearly not
fixed width...the columns are now 'wavy'.
Resetting the fontSize of the field before printing, and resetting
again, afterwards, like this :
set the textSize of fld "pList" to 8
set the printMargins to "30,30,30,30"
if the result is "Cancel" then exit to top
revPrintField the name of fld "pList"
set the textSize of fld "pList" to 9
solves the size problem, but the columns are still wavy.
Copying the text into textEdit and printing from there solves the wavy
columns problem, but the fontSize is now reduced to 8 point. (Typing
directly into textEdit and printing seems to be fine...)
Simply printing the card, with it's controls and everything (which I
don't want), shows the columns nice and straight, but the font size is
now even bigger, at 12 points, I'd say.
Printing to a PDF shows all the same problems, so I don't think it's
the printer (an HP5552).
Any ideas anyone?
