You won't, if there is an up-to-date backup.chex file in your Chandler
directory. I think Chandler's default is to update that file when you
quit. Can someone on the list confirm this, please?

Alternatively, you can test this: quit chandler, then search for
backup.chex, and check its modification time.

No. There are no new printing features in 1.0.3.
