As the originator of 1619 (still UNCO in the BZ database!!), I'm also  
not exactly sure what you mean but it seems likely to be part of any  
solution to the problem expressed there - I was originally trying for  
some kind of minimum interaction with the printer driver, but really  
I would like the whole thing, meaning the ability to get and set  
information about a specific printer, including choices a user has  
made, like page size, orientation and margins (and even maybe use of  
colour etc, but I don't imagine any Transcript manipulation of such  
highly specific information).  If you are indeed talking about the  
same kinda thing, please add a note if need be, and vote. This is one  
of those areas that have been hinted at (way back in Dr Raney's time)  
as being somehow impossibly difficult for Rev, but which has  
nevertheless been tackled by apps as far apart as GraphicConverter  
(Mac only) and MS Word (Mac and PC).
