I'd be very surprised if this were true for the Windows version, since it isn't true for the Mac version. I know it doesn't do a simple screen dump--you can tell that by the absence of jaggies in the printed output. The Mac version (and surely the version for that other platform) has a fairly elegant formatting capability accessible from the Print Preview command. You can also set just the area you want to print with the 'Print Area' command.
