Hi Lars. I have experienced a similar result on my XP machine. I have found
that exporting to PNG and then printing gives very good results. Hope this
helps. Mark Dexter

        Hello List,
        I have given Dia/Win32 a try several times now since a couple of
years with
        several versions. 
        I'm currently using the latest 0.96.1-7 on Windows XP SP2.
        The problem with Dia in all this verisons is: When i print out
diagrams, the
        result is ugly and very different from the on-screen layout. Text
flows over 
        box boundaries, lines don't start at exact boundaries as they were
        positioned in the diagam etc.
        I suppose this is a known issue (i wasn't in the mood to register on
        Bugzilla to verify that).
        Maybe it's only a Windows issue? Maybe a GTK issue? 
        What i wonder is why this bug stays open for a such long period of
        The whole program is rather useless when you cannot print out
        Don't get me wrong, but this limitation really sucks! 
        It's the only thing that keeps me off from using Dia more seriously.
        Please put the fixing of this thing to higher priority.
        Best regards,
