Printing fix

Thanks to several alert readers, HeroMachine 2.5 Online has been updated so that the entire character, including the name box if visible, will print out on one sheet. Previously the new “ad” format had chopped the character off at the ankles when printed.

The solution was inelegant, at best. I introduced a dialog box in the app when the print button is pressed. The character area is shrunk down while it’s up and processing the print request. Whenever the character is done printing (i.e. when you’ve clicked the OK button on your system print dialog box), you can clear the HeroMachine dialog box and the character resizes correctly.

Kludgey, but it works.

This is actually an improvement over the original release in terms of the actual printing, as the bottom edge of the name box was always chopped off before. So that’s nice.

Let me know if you see any problems with it.
