Click to expand/collapse this hidden text Converting a print file

to other formats. Some of these formats are useful for archiving documents: e.g. TIFF (Tagged Image File Format), PDF (Portable Document Format), plain text or the format that MS Windows Vista® defaults to: XPS (XML paper specification). Other formats are useful for transferring jobs to other printers, e.g. IBM® IPDS and AFP images, Xerox® IMG images, PostScript files and FDL (Forms Description Language). You can export files manually or set up EscapeE to run continuously, converting new files as they arrive. EscapeE supports TCP/IP input from a specified port and can send its PDF output via LPR. EscapeE also can be controlled remotely from a standard browser using the RedTitan nQ server.
