– fixed problem with invalid font size in the
generated text file when Access 2002 reports
are being printed. The problem was caused
by the fact that Access 2002 uses a World

printer specific paper size and the text file
generation routine did not check this.

to scale the output, the font size will also be
rescaled. This problem did not affect the
resultant image file, it affected only the
generated text file.
