Problems printing zoomed chart

Hi, 

I'm having problems printing a zoomed line chart.

I can't use the printer icon or 'Chart.Printit 0, 0'

because that gets me multiple (about a dozen) pages.

With 'Chart.Printit -1, -1', I get only 1 page, but it's

not the same X and Y scale that's on the screen.

Example:

The zoomed chart on the screen has these scale values:

X scale: 242 to 300

Y scale: 800 to 1000

The printed chart shows:

X scale: 482 to 550

Y scale: 740 to 1000

After the print finishes, the screen looks the same as before

until I click anywhere in the plot area. Then the scales jump to:

X scale: 482 to 540

Y scale: 740 to 940

Interestingly, the scroll buttons for the X and Y scales stay in the

old position that corresponds to the old values, until I click on

a scroll arrow. Then the corresponding scroll button jumps to

the position corresponding to the new value.

Occasionally, when I try to print the zoomed chart, I get a message box:

Run-time error

'-2147417848 (80010108)'

Automation error

What can I do to properly print a zoomed chart?
