gfx printing in delphi

When printing in Delphi 1.0 an object called Printer of type TPrinter is used.
I wish to print color graphics with this printer object. This should be done by copying a bitmap onto Printer.Canvas.

This produces poor results though. The Printer.Canvas seems to be black & white, so NO dithering is used to emulate color on b&w printers.

There must be a better way:
  Has anyone experienced similar problems with delphi 1.0?
  or perhaps an alternative way of printing graphics that they
  know produces proper results?

Have a look at www.borland.com and locate Ti3155 in the Delphi Technical Support section.  It is too large to post here, but I believe it will answer your question.

I am about to try it myself...
