revPrintText and the new printing facilities

I'm making my first attempt to use printing in Rev seriously since the new 
features were introduced (ie in 2.9).  I'm printing graphics on a multipage 
document; and I want to add headers and footers.  The easy way to do this 
looks to be revPrintText; but it places the header very low (and footer high) 
on the page, as well as printing a big white box in the middle for the body 
text that I didn't specify.

Is there control over the margins/positioning used by revPrintText?  Is there 
even any way to find out (programmatically rather than by experimentation) 
where it positions text?  Or should it be considered as part of the old way of 
doing things, not to be mixed with the new?
