open printing, close printing, for print spool job

It's worse even. I'm trying to do

  on printSomeCards

    global cardsToPrint

    open printing with dialog

    if the result is "Cancel" then exit printSomeCards

    repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines of cardsToPrint

      print card (line x of cardsToPrint)

    end repeat

    close printing -- send group of cards to printer

  end printSomeCards

But when I do it only the last card gets spooled and printed.

So I do this:

  on printSomeCards

    global cardsToPrint

    open printing with dialog

    if the result is "Cancel" then exit printSomeCards

    repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines of cardsToPrint

      print card (line x of cardsToPrint)

close printing

    end repeat



  end printSomeCards


Then all the cars print but not as one nice batch (for example when you
print to a PDF and you want a many page PDF.


I'm using RunRev version 3.0 on Mac OS. Does anyone know how to get the
print spool function to work?
