TPrintPreview and kerning.

Postby rodrigo3d » February 22nd, 2005, 10:23 pm

Hi.

I'm using TPrintPreview in Delphi 7 and I'm having the following problem.

The text is printing with wrong kerning (the spaces between the characters).

I.e. The character "V" and "E" are overlapping.

Does anyone knows why?

TIA,

Rodrigo Campos

you use not-truetype font. that's why. and that's not component's fall. it's windows metafile behavior.

When user ask to print the preview, instead of calling Print method of the component, set DirectPrint property to True and recreate the preview pages. In this way you will havd good quality output.
