You can do the same thing with a generic PS driver that comes with Windoze. Just setup the port as FILE, and it'll cue you for it everytime you print. IIRC, you can use Ghostscript to generate PS ?or PDF? as a printer driver as well. -- Mark Randol, RF Evaluation Engineer Motorola SPS, Inc.

I've seen many people mention PDF distiller/PDF writer to get high res simple output. There is also a free alternative to this (if you don't mind PostScript). Adobe has put out a free PostScript printer driver at http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=44platform=Windows
