Chapter 5.4 - PostScript graphics printing engine (PS)

If your source programma does use very complex PostScript graphical printer control codes (like OrCad or AutoCAD for DOS), you can select the PS printing engine at Configuration -> Standard in place of the RAW printing engine (that forces you using only PostScript capable printers).

This engine, in fact, allows sending prints containing graphical PostScript commands to any Windows printer, even if that printer doesn't support the PostScript language (including virtual printers, like PDF writers).

To enable it, you need to install GhostScript in the PC:

  1. Download the Win32 or Win64 version (depending if you're using a 32 or 64 bit Windows version) of GhostScript from https://www.printfil.com/cgi-bin/connect.cgi?ghostscript
  2. Install the EXE (for example gs910w32.exe or gs910w64.exe) on your machine

If the print preview is enabled at Configuration -> Standard, instead of using the integrated GDI Printfil's preview, the PostScript print will be converted into a PDF file and shown inside the default PDF reader, so that you can eventually print it and/or send it by e-mail.

For this purpose, you also need to create the "Printfil" virtual printer, as described in Chapter 8 of this manual.
