To export files to PostScript

1.Choose Export... from the 'File' menu.
2.Select the page range you want to export.
3.Select Discard file list if you want same-named files to be overwritten - see File List.
4.Choose PostScript level 2 or PostScript level 3 as the 'Format'.
5.A wildcarded filename (with extension .PS) and folder are supplied. To create a different filename or extension, type in the new name. To select a different folder to store the file, use the Browse button.
Check the LPR box; the filename will be supplied automatically.
6.Click PostScript options... to set more options for export.
7.Tick the Force monochrome checkbox if required.
8.Tick Run the associated program after creating the file if you want EscapeE to open the file immediately using your preferred program e.g. Ghostscript.
9.If you have data fields set up in the document, select the format for the Log file. See options for Log file export.
10.Click OK to export the pages.


EscapeE directly generates output for PostScript level 2 or 3 printers without using any Windows printer driver.

There is an option to use data compression: this usually reduces the size of the output files, though it makes them slower to generate. See To set more options for export.

The tray/bin selection specified in the PCL data can be overridden using /TRAY and /BIN - see Command line syntax.
