Printing to Files
Printing to Files — We received a huge sheaf of suggestions on how to store a Web page for later printing or viewing, which we cover in Save Me from the Web, below. But we also received a note about an error in the FAQtoids section of NetBITS-009. The standard PostScript printer drivers on the Mac (which shows up as LaserWriter in the Chooser) and Windows let you save files in PostScript format, which you can later download to a printer. However, I noted the wrong location of this feature on the Mac.
If you’re using a LaserWriter driver that’s earlier than 8.4, you’ll note an option in the main Print dialog box (not Page Setup, as we said last issue) that lets you select between Printer and File for output. In version 8.4 and later, there’s a pop-up menu in the upper right of the Print dialog box that has the same choice. [GF]
