Issue/background:
2 Operating Systems - WinXP Pro SP-2 / W98SE.

I'm having issues with NFOpad 1.2 on WinXP Pro SP-2 system which runs without fault on the W98se system using same version NFOpad 1.2.

FYI: the older NFOpad 1.0 works fine on WinXP Pro as it also did on W98SE.

Error dialogue box when NFOpad 1.2 is installed in XP is:

NFOpad
"Error reading PrintDialog1->Copies: There is no default printer currently selected."

This error appears regardless of 'text" file type selected to 'open with' NFOpad 1.2. e.g. .txt / .nfo. /.diz

I un-installed version 1.2 and installed 1.0 and error message box no longer appears.

While I am here I'd like to say that for the greater part, I've been most pleased with NFOpad and have been using version 1.0 for a couple of years. Generally speaking, I prefer it over most every other NFO reader I've tried (and I tried more than a few. :-)

However, if I could be so bold as to make a suggestion or request an 'improvement', I'd like to ask for the ability to choose Font typeface styles and text size options, as the simple choices of small, normal, or large is rather limited and is either miniscule or else rather 'clumsy/bulky' in appearance.

Screen resolutions I've used have been 1024x768, 1280x1024 and 1600x1200. Currently, I'm using 1280x1024 and text size is still on the small size when using "small' and 'NFO standard font'. Normal text (size) is too "bold" and heavy.

Thanks for whatever time you've taken to both develope this program and for reading my post.

Cheers and thanks,
Picky

Hello,
I'm glad to hear you like NFOpad and I thank you for the detailed bug report.

I've noticed this bug too, and it is the printing controller that I use that doesn't work properly if no printer is installed in WinXP. The problem can be solved by installing a printer... Also, this bug is fixed for the next version of NFOpad which I hope will be released in May.

Regarding the font settings, I will be using a new font in the next version, which will look much better in all sizes. I will consider adding more font settings as well.

Hi. :-)

Thanks for reviewing my "review" :-D... and, you are most welcome.

I appreciate te info regarding the error and the solution. :-)I had a printer as most do, but it died (as most do). I haven't yet replaced it (as most people do not do as I do). *ggg*

It's nice to know the 'bug' will be remedied in next release, which will probably be sooner than my ability to purchase a new printer. :-D

As for the Font/Typeface/Size improvement(s), I look forward to that with great anticipation.

Again, many thanks for your program, your work, and your dedication.

Regards and cheers,
Picky

Hello,
you don't need to have a physical printer connected to the computer. You can just install drivers for a printer, for example a Microsoft generic text printer (I don't remember the name, but it's something like that). Let me know if it doesn't work or you need additional help.

Thanks for your suggestion.... I'll give that a try. :-)
