Have you checked Xcode docs in Core Printing? That’s where I would look. Most things the user can set in a print dialog may be retrieved for use in code. Maybe PMPrinterGetPaperList()?

Keep in mind the demos and the include file do not present a print dialog to the user. Of course it could be added ( possibly in the calling code ).

Would you post the "all sorts of errors"?  Both the calls cited are available in OS X 10.0 +. However, be advised my goal was to write 64-bit compatible code and compatibility with older OS X releases wasn’t checked. If OS X 10.4.x is the priority, consideration should be given to the standard FB runtime instead of my include.
