    Default Sys_Print does not print

    I can right-click on an image file in Explorer (gif, jpg, etc.) and select Print and a print dialog is called up but when I use Sys_Print (which should do the same thing, according to the docs) the file is just opened up in the associated program and does not print. Does the same thing as Sys_Open. What's up with that? Doesn't matter which program is associated with the file. Using Alpha Five v10.5.

    Hi Chuck,
    It appears that it works for all printable files but picture files--not .bmp, jpg, or png. But does work with txt, rtf, pdf, excel, ppt ....

    I don't know if this is just a documentation issue, an oversight, or a bug.
    Mike

    Thanks Mike. Unfortunately the picture printing is what I need it for (along with PDF printing, but I did not test that yet). Maybe I can make a PDF first, then print that. Perhaps this can be added to a "wish list" if it is not a bug.
