My understanding of this may be flawed, but from what I read years ago you should be able to use a pass thru filter (driver) and let the Mac do the hard work. It may be a slower way to print though, but based on your outline of the quantity you do print it should suffice. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
