I have a Writer document that has dynamically changing content and thus needs a macro to effectively print (instead of hundreds of manual print dialogues) and I am fiddling around with some print methods and properties found at:
http://www.pitonyak.org/OOME_3_0.pdf. Everything in my macros for my dynamic document all work correctly (including the general print property changes), besides the PagePrintSettings. The PagePrintSettings seem to fail at runtime and I am not sure why. Are the margins supposed to not be a string? I have tried making them both integers and floats to no success (as well as strings, obviously). I am sure I have made a small mistake somewhere. Can anyone explain a little bit of the print properties/methods and give some working examples? Also, are the margins in TWIPS? Is that perhaps why it is not working?
