Re: Noob can't print right on Win32....

I'm in the US so I'm using letter sized paper.
AFAIK, that is exactly your problem.

US Letter is narrower than A4
so the on screen lines will be misleading.
I used to live in the UK and I've run across this one before ;)
ANSI A paper is .6cm wider and 1.8cm shorter.....  This is what
me. If this was the problem the diagram should be to narrow and too
long... not too wide. however this may be why I always get a blank
of paper with every print.  Also when I change back to A4 (Page setup
appears to have paper size support) the problem is still there (I'm
GhostScript to view)!  And landscape mode is totaly whacked out no
what the size..  I'm wondering if this is a Dia thing or a Win32 Dia

I've been using Linux Dia with Letter paper for a long time without
problem, so I'm guessing it's a Win32 Dia problem.  Probably the same
OOooooo.... Nicely found.
I had a rummage in Buzilla but I guess I missed that one!

Hopefully you can workaround it.
My current tactic is to eport to PNG...
Not very handy but it works for now...
Oh, that's horrible.  Can you export to EPS and use Ghostscript to
No...... the EPS export is just as bad as the prints.
SVG however is starting to look very promising! Though I may have to
install Illustrator to format them :(
I was trying to stay away from expensive bloatware by using Dia. Know of
any good SVG viewer/printers on Win32? The only free one I've found is the
Adobe SVG viewer and that only appears to work in IE.

Thanks ;)
At least I *know* that this is a Win32 bug and I'm not just doing
something silly.
