I also have the problem that I can't change a Printer without using the plugin script. Just going to a Layout, Print, change Printer in the Dialog... it print always on the same printer. I did not have this with 1.7.1

    the Problem changing Printer with no plugin is not working on Windows. I use
    PrSw_PrintSetup( "reset" ) and PrSw_SelectPrinter( "" ) then show the Printing Dialog, but the changes from the user is not working, it prints always the same place.
    Newest Plugin from April 12.

    I made some Tests. Now is is so, that if I only do PrSw_SelectPrinter( "" ) it works fine, but if I do bouth first PrSw_PrintSetup( "reset" ) and PrSw_SelectPrinter( "" ) the current Printer is not 0 as it should be. I thougt the reset is for that issue.

    OK I did some more tests. I would like to print without using the Plugin. On Mac there are no problem, the problems are only on windows. I tested on different Systems like XP and Vista.

    It looks like this:
    1. PrSw_PrintSetup("restore| (empty)" ) and PrSw_SelectPrinter( "" )
    Result: Printerchange by Hand works, changing settings, like Papertry, not

    1. PrSw_PrintSetup("reset" ) and PrSw_SelectPrinter( "" )
      Result: Prints on standardprinter, even if I change it in the dialog

    2. PrSw_PrintSetup("restore| (code)" ) and PrSw_SelectPrinter( "Number" )
      Result: Works fine, but changes in the dialog with no effect

    Hello Luk,
    I would be very happy if you could fix the problem as fast as you can. I already made al the changes in my progam, I can't go back to 1.7 and alle the users are whaiting and can't use the program as they want. The function is very important, and John and many other users, have the same problem.

    Thank's for working out a solution as fast as you can.
    Best regards
