Toner Tuner News -- Anthony Pun <anthonyp@extro.ucc.su.oz.au> reports that Working Software says that Toner Tuner, the utility that helps reduce the amount of toner or ink used in draft printouts, works beautifully with the 600 dpi HP LaserJet 4M. There are apparently still problems with the DeskWriter 3.x drivers, but Toner Tuner does work with the older 2.2 version of the DeskWriter drivers. Other bugs due to be fixed in the next upgrade, which will be free, include tweaks for PageMaker 5.0, FreeHand, and Illustrator, all of which use custom PostScript code. And finally, Working Software reduced the price from $49.95 to $24.95 per machine and has made the program available in Egghead and through some mail order companies.
