Well, that's a stern warning. ;-)

Can you tell me what happens if from the Action tab of ListMagic you click
on the Actions menu on the upper right and select Print. You should get a
Page Setup screen. Select Portrait and OK. You should get a nicely formatted
Test list of the sample data.

Did you use the LMPrint command described in the Syntax tab of ListMagic to
do your print? The LMExport also works nicely from this menu. Basically you
need to use the handlers provided with ListMagic in your app.
