Print problem

Hi Mark,

Guess I found the answer where the last line in dictionary says:

"If you use the revShowPrintDialog command outside a handler where a  
revPrintField or revPrintText command is executed, the  
revShowPrintDialog command has no effect. The command sets printing  
options only for the currently executing handler."

So I need to be able to set the scale and orientation using something  
other than the two properties that aren't available until 2.9. Any  
suggestions for doing that? ANYONE?

TIA, Joe Wilkins
