1.) I dont know "tango" exactly, but i did use master designer in dos. And i
was able to get it running on Windows 2000/XP/NT as well as 9x boxes!!!
2.) When i wanted to print i just loaded the plot file in winplot and
printed from there. You can also plot to PDF and print that way.
3.) Simple print screen commands allow some cut and paste.
Let me know if you need help with any of these.
