Print Using A Different Form

This is a trivial exercise, but I have not seen anything like it in this database so here you go.... We all know that the words "Notes", "Print", and "Looks Good" do not go together! My tree-killing, print-centric users appreciate the nice forms we develop for use in the Notes client, but are often disappointed when they try to print. Usually the forms get cut off by the right margin. I solved this by creating a print-friendly version of the Notes form. I started with a copy of the original form and stripped out special formatting, changed the fields to simply display data, reduced colors to black or elimated them. Then I created an action button in the Notes form that contains a simple Script to open the document using the print-friendly form. The print-friendly form has the usual print button containing the @Command.
