[REBOL] Re: Printing
From: bo:rebol at: 12-Jan-2001 11:29
You mean you didn't like my idea of doing a 'save/png 'to-image on the
layout (or face) you want to print and then do a BROWSE on that image and
selecting PRINT on the browser? :-)
Maybe you were looking for something a little more automatic. I don't blame
On Amiga it isn't a big issue as you can use BROWSE and then you can use
an AREXX <-> REBOL bridge script to send the browser a command to print and
close the browser when printing is complete. Unfortunately, all platforms
are not this flexible. :-)
