To printer in the middle of a line, you'll need to figure out the width of the text you're about to print, then begin printing 1/2 that difference between that width and the width of the printer object. This involves the use of the method textwidth, which gives the length (in the current scalemode) of a text string.

printer.currentx = (printer.width - printer.textwidth("print string")) / 2 printer.print "print string"

When I use this technique, it prints off center to the right.  Whenever I use textwidth I do not get the expected results.
