It's allright. I know it can be frustrating. And I don't read your
message as "bitching" whatsoever. To that point, I am afraid someone
else will have to come aboard and help. I have no further experience
to share on that particular issue. I print from PDF because it allows
me to first softproof the document, then print. Saves paper.
I assume it won't be long before a good soul gets here on the list to
help you out.
Did you try the "stupid" trick : print in "portrait" mode... even
though you want "landscape". If one doesn't work, maybe the other
will. Sometimes strange things happen.
