How to build WYSIWYG application that can preview printing in Delphi 2.
Is it possible to "control" font height with precision up to tens of milimeter, using CreateFontIndirect()?
Thanks.
P.S. Sorry for my English I'm still learning.

just a hint: you can automate Word from D2, then WYS is really WYG. Could provide code to start Word, open template, insert text, print doc, save doc. But answers are also in PAQ here.

And one more advice.

Create new question with the same title+"175p" , assign 0 points, and put there link to this question. It will pop-up again to first 10 questions without spending points.

Best regards,
Igor.

to PeterLarsen,
it seems to me still happen. I see an question without any answers at 02:20 (even after reloading), and at 02:30 I see a lot of answers from  01:27, 01:40, 01:55.....etc. Some of my (and not only mine) answers in some PAQ threads missing. Notification may take about 2 hours.

Cheers,
Igor.
