I don't try to use the print capabilities of Gimp, of Inkscape, of
Krita, of Scribus or whatever. It is easier to save a file (PDF
anyone?) and print that file out using e.g., Acrobat Reader.
And now a question. Why are you "upgrading" to the effectively
abandoned product Vista? Would not Windows 7 make more sense?
