 Problems with Printer in VB4

I do know what you are talking about. I had the same problems to. The
following code will work

Printer.FontName = "Arial"
Printer.FontSize = 11
Printer.Print "Dette er en test."

It seems that you have to send "nothing" to the printer object before
you can change the font. Don't ask me why!!

Hope this helps!
