    Question Printing to a file!

    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.
