Subject: Re: Printing at 600 dpi produces small images

Hi Larry,

I have done a change recently that solves this problem without having to change the PrintMode. This is because the printer metrics were only read when the PrintMode property is assigned. So if the resolution is changed on the printer, but the PrintMOde is not changed, the graphics are not scaled properly. Here is the change.

In EnPrint.Pas, TDibGraphicPrinter.Print,

just before the case PrintMode of statement, add:

{ MB Jul 27, 2000 Re-read the printer metrics as changing the orientation
on some printers may change the parameters }

case PrintMode of
pmOriginalSize :

I think this will solve the problem.

Best regards,
