 Interesting, what is so hard about editing the print directory option?

 FWIW if you really want to have a standard look for this dialog, you might
consider using wxPreferencesEditor which is meant to look as native
dialogs. Unfortunately MSW doesn't really have any native dialog for this
nor even any real standard (I think a wxListbook or a wxTreebook with the
icons on the left hand side is the most common approach, but there are
plenty of exceptions), so it won't gain us much under this platform, the
difference is most pronounced in wxGTK and wxOSX ports. However using this
class might still be a good idea because if it improved in wxWidgets later,
lmi would profit from these improvements automatically.
