Hi Julian,

Welcome to the Quartam forums.

You should be able to bypass the preview window by passing "false" as the 'show preview' parameter.
Your user would still see the 'Page setup' and 'Print' dialogs, though - there's currently no option to suppress them and print silently.

Unfortunately, the current release has a bug that throws an error if you try to print without preview.
I have fixed it, but I still haven't put out an official release yet (swamped by work at the day-job)

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
