Regarding GCAPS_SCREENPRECISION in printer driver

Hello Ashwin,

Win2k DDK documented the GCAPS_SCREENPRECISION in Graphic Caps in
DevInfo, if this flag is set, font engine will choose the screen fonts
over device fonts when there is no exact match. Setting this flag fixes
many device font related issues ( if we uncheck this flag, GDI
automatically substitutes with some device font which may not be proper)
in win2k/XP. However this flag is not documented for NT 4.0. Can you
throw some light on how to achieve this functionality in NT 4.0.

Thanks in advance
Ravi

This flag doesn’t seem to have been implemented at all on NT4. So I am
not sure how you can achieve the same functionality on NT4.
Unfortunately, there are numerous GDI flags that are available on W2K/XP
but not on NT4.
