Printing problems

Hello all,

I have an app that produces labels from a Dymo label printer. These
labels include a barcode which I calculate and display using a barcode
font, then they get printed. This works perfectly on one computer.
Then I tried running it on another computer and every time I try to
print I get an error saying "can't end last page". Then the app gets
stuck on a dialog that has a cancel button which achieves nothing. I
have to quit the app, which I can do normally (I don't have to force
quit).

Using the software that came with the printer, I can print perfectly,
so the printer drivers and the printer are fine, it seems to be a Rev
problem. Has anyone else encountered this error and if so, do you know
of a workaround.

On a related note, this app frequently needs to swap printers as it
prints labels on the Dymo printer and reports on a laser printer. This
is a real pain for the users as Rev has no way of storing & setting
page setups or printer preferences. I have to ask them to do Page
setup every time they print! If this is  also a problem for you,
please consider voting for Bug #1619
