Okay, I finally got around to trying this, but it doesn't work. I
followed these steps as closely as I possibly could, but I still get
strange printouts from Windows (XP is bad, 2000 is pathetic), and OS X
printouts still look great.
The biggest issue (perhaps the only one left) with XP printing is that
text at the right edge of a field does not print. In other words, the
field is x units wide, Rev allows the line of text to be x+y units
wide, and the extra y pixels get cut off instead of wrapped. The field
is multiline and other lines below that one do exist.
In W2K (the real manifestation of what some people thought Y2K would be
... though an overall improvement over its predecessors, I think), the
printouts show extra blank lines in the middle of a field, some lines
wrap prematurely after a word or two, and so forth.
Oh, and I just recently figured out the problem with the "Preparing"
stack: it was topLevel, and hidden behind my modal dialog (which was a
sheet in OS X, so not a problem there...) Oops! Fixed by displaying
it as a palette.
