Um . . .
connected up my printer and turned it on (yes, oddly enough I have looked
a "right banana" when I haven't done that in the past) and typed this into
the message box:
put printRectangle and got 0,0,612,795
put printPaperRectangle gave me the same result
PRESUMABLY that means that my printable area is 612 wide by 795 high;
whether that is US letter or A$ or some rococo size only available in
has to be set by printPaperSize
tried this set printPaperSize to "B3" and got nowhere (!!!!) so, I
assume, one has
to "know" one's paper sizes in terms of pixels . . . . Oink, Oink, Oink.
Now what IS NOT clear to me is whether, when I muck about with the
the printRectangle will change:
Let's have a go:
set the printMargins to 200,200,200,200
put printRectangle gives me 0,0,612,792
No joy there!
SO, my question is . . . how does one find out what the printable area is
WITHOUT having to muck about mathematically subtracting printMargins
