If that turns out to work for Alan, it would certainly be easier. I have an old
laser printer on LPT1 and a much newer inkjet on LPT2. Since there doesn't seem
to be any settable XY default for printing to a printer that's on the 2nd.
Parallel port, I use TYPEF ,LPT2 whenever Xy is making use of that printer.
