the following with regards to pmview
version 2.3 for OS/2:

Does pmview support printer directly to a postscript printer, I've been having problems, I see one margin go wacky with a huge number?

I do see that I can save an image as encapsulated postscript, But then how does One print it under OS/2?

And can I get it saved so when I go to print it, it will be the correct size printed?

regards
cssw

Have you followed all the advice in the on-line help and in the FAQ at www.pmview.com?

Printing problems are common under OS/2 and as common as they are, they are also equally commonly fixed by following the documented procedures. Except for a few cases where the printer driver was exceptionally bad (may no longer apply at today's date), following these instructions have always worked.

That's a good question! This is not the common way to do it. It requires that you have set up your printer in a way that lets you pipe directly into the printer. If printing directly from PMView does not work, then I doubt you'll have much more luck this way, because it is definitely harder to set up (or at least not _easier_).

A good place to start is to install GhostView. This lets you display the postscript file and see that the file itself is correct...
