When I try to print a bitmap, it always prints a "small" picture of it.  I am using code like:
...
begindoc;
canvas.draw(0, 0, image1.picture.graphic);
...
Is there a way to get the picture to print much larger, as it is much larger on my screen.  I don't want a 3" by 2" pic of it, but an actual sized picture. I am using D1 with Win95, and I have tried about everything to make this picture print larger, to no avail. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Remember the Pixels Per Inch quoted for your printer?
A laser printer could be as high as 600 dpi - the width of your screen is less than 2 inches on paper!
Use StretchDraw to print your bitmap larger.
