To first display a print preview window, this can be added to the BRConfig.sys file:

Substitute WIN:/  PREVIEW:/

Or, the preview can be started from the program itself using this command:

 00100 OPEN #255: "name=preview:/select",display,output

As of 4.2, BR saves the PREVIEW window "position" and "maximized" settings across sessions.

During PREVIEW, clicking "Print (all)" produces a standard Windows print dialog box so the user can specify copies, range and other printing options.

The PREVIEW window continues to be non-modal (permitting multiple concurrent previews), but we suppress the raising of the initiating window in response to waiting for keyboard entry until the PREVIEW window is closed. This avoids the eclipsing of the preview window by the initiating window.
