Are there any plans to expand on the Print Preview functionality? My application uses Office2003-style menus and icons, so the Print Preview window doesn't have the same look-and-feel as my application.

In a future release, it'd actually be nice to see the Preview Preview supplied as a control with methods & properties to control zoom, size, pages on screen, etc. That would allow us to create our own windows and toolbars that look like the rest of our application.

Just curious what you thought...

Actually we call the built-in Print Preview dialog in the .NET framework. I think you can make your own Form and put a PrintPreviewControl on it. That way you can customize its look and feel. You'll need to pass a PrintDocument object to it, which we expose in the PrintSettings.PrintDocument property.

I didn't realize that's how it was implemented. Thanks for the heads up!
The latest build of this product (v2018.1 build 0341) was released 6 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
