Printing Logic Needs Changing!

The addition of clipping logic has the potential to break current ProEssentials implementations which include custom printing logic. In the process of porting an application to v8 from a much earlier version, you should plan on changing calls of PEresetimage to PEresetimageEx or disabling clipping by setting DisableClipping to TRUE.

 

Also, if calling the Windows PlayMetafile api call, it should be replaced with the ProEssentials PEplaymetafile api call.

 

Custom Parameter Set now Disabled!

NoCustomParms is now by default set to TRUE. If desired, set this property back to FALSE.
