Well, when you use 'print stack' or 'print marked
cards' then Revolution figures out how large the cards
are and how much fits onto the paper, moves downwards
to print the second card on the same page, jumps to
the next page, etc.

But when you're taking over the printing process by
using individual 'print card' commands, you get the
opportunity to decide this yourself. With great power
comes great responsibility - oh, wait, that was
Spiderman, right? :-)
