Those come though Page Setup on Mac OS, but they're part of the standard
Print dialog in Windows. That's part of this issue: not only is the
user interface radically differrent between platforms, but the
underlying APIs even more so.
It would be interesting to hear some input from RunRev on their plans
for integration with OS page settings.
In the meantime, Transcript gives you control over orientation, scaling,
etc., so you can print without relying on the OS Page Setup or Print
dialogs. Have you played with those options much? You might like what
