 Oh, I forgot to mention, I'm printing using a Dymo Labelwriter 400 printer hook up to my Mac

Subject: Trouble figuring out printpapersize and small fonts










I am trying to print from Revolution onto a 2 inch wide X .75 inch tall barcode 
label.

I'm having a very hard time, however, because:

1)? I don't know the secret formula for creating the printpapersize dimensions.
According to the docs, 8.5 x 11" equates to a printpapersize of 595, 842.? So, 
if I'm doing my math right, a label that's 2 x .75 inches would have a papersize 
of 153, 57?? I'm telling the printer to print landscape, which also complicates 
things.? I don't know which end is up when defining papersize dimensions.

(e.g.? 11 is to 842 as 2 is to 153)


2)? I'm having a hard time getting any fonts to print less than 8 point.? (I'm 
on a Mac).? When I go to see all the sizes that I can use to set a font like 
"Courier", it looks like I can go down to 6, but when I print, it comes out 
huge.? Anyone know of any fonts that will print at size 6?
