Printer Object Quirk

You would think that the following code would change the current font of the default printer, but it doesn't under VB4:
 Printer.FontName = "Arial"
Printer.FontSize = 11
Printer.Print "This is a test."
An undocumented feature of VB4's Printer object requires that each new page be initialized before the font can be changed. This code works as expected:
 ' Start new page
Printer.Print

' Set margins as desired
Printer.ScaleMode = vbTwips
Printer.CurrentY = 720

' Now you can set the font
Printer.FontName = "Arial"
Printer.FontSize = 11
Printer.Print "This is a test."
