I am trying to print some text which has been typed into
a text box.If I use printer.print the text comes out as one
long line and runs onto new pages. I basically need to wrap the text around. I wrote a function to wrap the text
onto the next line breaking on spaces however I seem to be losing the last word on each sentence when I print this does not happen in the debug window.To cut a long story short is there an easier way to print text from a large text box to a printer.
