The Printable interface provides a Graphics into which I have to draw what I want. But it's calling my print() method way too many times to be reasonable to draw on the graphics from my data model that many times.

I was thinking that if I saved the contents of the Graphics I'm given after I've finished drawing on it and then in subsequent print() calls I could just provide the saved Graphics. The trouble is that print()'s signature is:


The Graphics I need to draw on is g. So I can draw on g and then create a new Graphics (say g1) with the contents of g, but how do I update g's contents from g1 on subsequent calls?

thanks
