Hi Jim. Sorry didn't mean to come off that way.

I used the lmprint command from the message box. I got the page setup  
and print dialogs ok. I chose Format For and chose a local printer on  
the network. When I got to the print dialog I clicked the Preview  
button. It was at that point I got the Printing dialog and the  
spinning beach ball. That went on for over a minute at which point I  
treid to cancel. It then changed to cancelling printing but never  
actually did. I didn't try again. I had to quit Revolution which i did  
via the keyboard. Every attempt to open a card containing a listmagic  
object after that threw errors so I had do delete the listmagic  
objects and scriptingi can try again and see if I get the same  
problem. I will say that I had recently used the VAB in GLX2 which I  
have had problems with so let me reproduce the error and get back to
