What if Windows users rarely printed things?

That hypothetical alternative world/dimension almost looks like part of 
LiveCode's operating paradigm!

Windows print bugs don't seem to get much attention.

For example, LC cannot print a field that has vGrid turned on.


(Direct to PDF works, but not every client wants to go that route.)

Or take this one (it may be two) - tiny checkboxes printed:



Lots of printer bugs. They tend to stick around.

So I just want to point out, that in the real world:

Windows users frequently print things.

And in USA, Windows is very common for SMALL businesses. With printers.

That's a whole market segment that LC could grow in - if some of the 
bugs are fixed.

(There's a way to bring in some of that extra money LC Ltd needs 
post-COVID! Fix a few bugs, grow a more diverse user base.)
