Keyboard Messages not intercepted when PreTranslateMessage is used


Mine is a MFC ActiveX Ctrl. I am using PreTranslateMessage as follows
so that keystrokes like backspace can be detected in IE, but though
SendMessage gets called, the Keystrokes like Arrow keys, delete
backspace don't function at all in
ActiveX container as well as IE. Am I missing something or do I need
to explicitly write WM_KEYDOWN (KEYUP) message handlers? Please let me know.

BOOL CMegafleetPluginCtrl::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
	switch (pMsg->message)
         case WM_KEYDOWN:
         case WM_KEYUP:
            switch (pMsg->wParam)
	       case VK_UP:
               case VK_DOWN:
               case VK_LEFT:
               case VK_RIGHT:
               case VK_HOME:
	       case VK_BACK:
	       case VK_DELETE:
		   SendMessage (pMsg->message, pMsg->wParam, pMsg->lParam);
                  // Windowless controls won't be able to call
                  // Instead, just respond to the message here.
                return TRUE;
      return COleControl::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);

Got it working. The control now responds to keys like
backspace,delete,tab etc in ActiveX Container as well as IE.
Now i override PreTranslateMessage as follows: ( with reference to some
other posts on MFC related groups)

BOOL CMegafleetPluginCtrl::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
bool isHandledNow = false;

if (IsDialogMessage (pMsg))
return true;

return COleControl::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);

it seems too be working fine...

Publisher won't print business cards correctly on any paper I use

In Publisher 2007 the business cards come out printing outside of the perforated areas, to high, off center, etc. I have tried manually going in and adjusting the paper settings and nothing has been successful. I have wasted tons of paper, ink and now I am frustrated. It should be as easy as click print and get your business cards, after a...
