I am running the latest version of cxOffice. Specifically, the applicatioin I am using is Visio 2003. When I installed it, it used a win2000 bottle. When I bring up the "Print" dialog, if I change the printer to a non-default printer, my document still prints on the default printer.
I have tried this with Word under the winxp bottle, and it seems to work fine. Is this an issue with win2000 bottles? Should I try to install Visio 2003 on the winxp bottle... even though it is not recommended?
edit: Just FYI, I am running Linux Mint 6 (which is Ubuntu Intrepid)

Sounds like more of an issue with Crossover just not being able to flip to different printers on your machine. Can you change the default printer in the OS and retest? Bottle types shouldn't make any difference.
I'm having a similar problem with this platform: Crossover Linux 7.1.0 Demo, Ubuntu 8.10 64bit (with 32bit libs installed). Whenever I try to print, no matter what printer I choose, it always tries to use "Invoice-R (Full Bleed)". I can select different properties for the printer, but it always flips back to the default. Any ideas?

hm...Crossover should be able to print to non-default printers (though default will be its favorite). Have you tried deleting and then re-creating the non-default printers on your system? This sometimes helps Crossover "see" the printer better (i.e. Crossover being already installed as the printer is re-created).

We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
