What version of Rev was used to build the app?
Printing changed dramatically in version 2.9 and I had this happen
several times in the early betas under Mac OS X, but I never had it
happen in the releases version.

Sometimes a problem of this type is caused by using older printer
drivers, so ask your customers to make sure they are using the latest
drivers for their printers.
