I can confirm all that.  We've backdated the 2.0 upgrade a very long way
back.  So this is a non-issue for all.  But if you choose to renew now, you
get manuals.

Also, the printing problem is fixed.  The problem was using a font that only
existed on screen and not on the printer on Windows 98 / ME systems.  We
added fontNames("printer") so you can get a list of fonts actually available
and use one of those.  The revPrintField also uses this automatically.

The network printer issue is also fixed.  As is the blank lines issue on XP
in our print field code.  It is essential you set the formatForPrinting
property to true after the user has chosen a printer (using answer printer).
Don't save a stack with that property set to true, or if in doubt, set it to
false then true as the command immediately before the print command.

Kind regards,
