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 
you find.
