Good idea, Richard.
I will collect all relevant texts and code pieces and put it in one document. Maybe Ton will add that to his SB manual or at least mention the possibility of direct printing and point to it.

I like your program solutions for getting a program listing, but thought I would mention another simple way to get your program printed. While in Basic I touch the text and then "select all". I open "Word" (or any similar program) and paste. Then I print it like any other text document. For me, it is quick, simple, and also saves a copy of my program in Word. I have successfully gone the reverse direction (touch Word document of saved program, select all, past in Smart Basic) and it runs without issue.

Yes, that is another method to print a text file, IF you have the right printer for it (with "airprint" like capability). If not, you can still send a text file to the PC using dropbox or even email and the print the stuff. But it all requires additional "manual" actions, which is not a problem in incidental cases. But if you have an app that prints dayly reports then thing are different.
By the way, printing a SB listing was no more than a little example. It was/is not the main purpose of finding this printing method
