Hi pepol!
Is it possible when on a webpage (or any thing for that matter) that a print button on it, to print to a file AND NOT TO THE PRINTER?
Could this be to do with the legendary 'virtual printer' I keep hearing about, but just keep missing all the details. Then the peope go quiet when I ask them about it.
Is it just a case of 'redirecting' the file to be printed? Or are ther drivers I can download to accomodate this? What is this bit of lint in my navel? Opps sorry bit off subject there, sorry.

Regards,

The Cell

When u click on the printer icon, check in the printer prefs for a print to file option. I've never tried it, but print to file is an option in my printer prefs.

Printer icons are normally a shortcut for the default printer, either change the default printer or select print from the file menu.

Canon printers have a little box in the print window l/h side, print to file, needs a tick to print to file.

Hi Brain_Cell. If I read you right.... Is it possible when on a webpage (or any thing for that matter) that a print button on it, to print to a file AND NOT TO THE PRINTER? why can't you just click File/Save As? :cool:
