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).
