Hi Trevor,

If I recall correctly, Amaya did have a print setup dialog with those
sort of preferences (please correct me if I'm wrong) but they were
removed during an infrastructure revamp (around version 10?). Quickly
trying with Amaya 11.3.1 (Dec 9 2009), I also wasn't able to find any
menu or preference where to tweak this kind of parameters.

In the meantime I can imagine that, therefore, probably Amaya is
simply using the default printer settings. As you haven't said
anything about your Amaya version nor environment (operating system,
at least), I'm just going to state that, on Windows, this can be
accessed through "Control Panel", "Printers  [and Faxes]",
right-clicking the desired printing and choosing "Printer
Preferences...". Then, according to the printer driver functionality,
you may be able to tweak more or less settings (which are basically
the default printing preferences which will apply to all
applications). Note that I haven't attempted this myself (check that
the default printer settings affect Amaya) so further feedback would
be welcome. :-)

(Another workaround will be using a browser which supports this sort
of tweaks. Firefox is such an example, although it also has its
printing issues.)

Hope this helps,
