#95 closed defect (fixed)

Printing to postscript file does not have correct header

Reported by: guest Owned by: eros2
Priority: major Milestone: Beta 4
Component: Lucide Core Version:
Keywords: postscript Cc:


If the postscript printer selected is set to output to file, the first line of the file is not %! which says that it is a postscript file. E.g. The first few lines of the postscript file that is generated: *

[{ %%BeginFeature?: Smoothing True << /PostRenderingEnhance? true /PostRenderingEnhanceDetails? << /REValue 2 /Type 8 >> >> setpagedevice %%EndFeature?: Smoothing } stopped cleartomark


Adding %! to before [{ allows me to lpr this file to a postscript printer.

This is a bug in beta4

As first lines provided by PM printing subsystem, I can't get it off. Instead, I added 'Print to file' option for postsript output in print dialog. Check it on, and ps output routine will ask for output file name and produce clean postscript file.

See changeset [162].
