I'm trying to print documents with SWT but the output, at least under
Linux, is very ugly. Fonts are huge, and so are lines, even setting line
width to 1 the size is huge, I can't believe it is 1 unit (whatever that

I'm trying to take a different approach, generate a PDF and print it
using Sun's PDF Render, but the result is nowhere near the original PDF
layout. Just to clarify, when printing the generated PDF with lpr the
output is correct, so the PDF is generated correctly.

I don't need very complex layouts, just few tables, but I need nice
fonts and lines drawing.

How do you generate your prints ?
