For question two:
I don't think you could do this.  Are you talking about printing Kanji?

By the way.  Asking two unrelated questions at one time is not fair.  You should have posted two separate questions.

Lousy question.


Add the following code to the global module:
Type OrientStructure
      Orientation As Long
      Pad As String * 16
End Type
Const PORTRAIT = 1
Const LANDSCAPE = 2
Const GETSETPAPERORIENT = 30

' Enter the following Declare statement:
Declare Function Escape% Lib "GDI" (ByVal hDc%, ByVal nEsc%, ByVal nLen%, lpData As OrientStructure, lpOut As Any)

The following code will print in landscape:

Dim Orient As OrientStructure

Printer.Print ""

Orient.Orientation = LANDSCAPE

x% = Escape(Printer.hDC, GETSETPAPERORIENT, Len(Orient), Orient, NULL)
Printer.EndDoc

Printer.Print "Should print in landscape mode"
Printer.EndDoc
