Problems with setCopies() on PrinterJob

P: n/a
Hi everybody,
following problem is driving me crayz:
I'm working with JDK 1.3.1. We are printing a PDF File via PDFGo
( In the print dialog shown by printjob.printDialog(),
the user selects the printer and, unfortunately, the number of copies
to be printed. Since the legal background demands that only ONE copy
is printed, what I'm trying to do is to set the users selection back
using printjob.setCopies(1) after the print dialog is shown.
getCopies() then tells me that one copy is to be printed, but the
printer prints the number of copies selected in the dialog, despite
What can I do here? I cannot disable the Number of Copies-Option in
the print dialog, can I?

Desperately yours
