 Could you please send me a scenario to reproduce the printing/problem
hang, I will debug it and try fixing it. Does current (HEAD) Emacs
have native printing support on M$ or does it relay on some lisp code
to use a helper application to print? I was using 'notepad'/'wordpad'
as a helper function to print earlier but have not used it in recent
times though.

I do not have UI related experience and hence may not be able to get
to work immediately.


Hi dky,

The information is in this thread:


But as Dan said this is not a simple issue that we can fix now. Instead I agree with what Jason said in this thread. We should simply warn the user about the problem (and I believe I said in the thread what I believe is reasonable to do). However adding a warning and a defcustom to avoid the warning should be rather easy (but not very simple).
