I am having the same problem as described in the thread below (from
the archives 12th May 2005)
However I can't find the solution.
In my case printing bordered fields on Windows loses the left border.
I have posted a simple example in the user spaces, Programming/
On the Mac the fields appear to print much thicker than 1 pixel.
Any suggestions much appreciated
... the May thread
I have found by setting the *field* margins (not the printmargin) to a
*higher number* fixes most all text truncation issues. Please try it.
