The Save subset... command may be used instead of the Export... command with the Format set to Subset; the options are the same in either case.
|From the File menu, choose
|Export... then select Subset as the Format.
|If Do not overwrite files is ticked, EscapeE adds a number to the new output file name if there is an existing file of the same name already present – see Overwriting files.
|With Subset already set as the Format, a wild-carded filename (with extension .PCL) and folder are supplied. To specify a different filename or extension, type in the new name. To select a different folder to store the file, use the Browse button.
|Tick the Force monochrome check-box if required.
|Tick Run the associated program after creating the file if you would like EscapeE to open the file immediately using your preferred program (EscapeE is the obvious program of choice). See also Associated programs.
|Choose the Fonts to be downloaded:
|fonts from the input file, or
|Any used library fonts to include any library fonts required by the document.
You can adjust the font download options when saving/exporting a subset. Normally EscapeE assumes that all download fonts are needed and so 'fonts from the input file' is selected. You may wish to deselect this, for example, when you are in the middle of a print run and the fonts have already been downloaded to the printer. This will save download time.
shown in a rotated state, the rotation is ignored when it is saved or exported as a Subset.
Tip: PCL files that have been repeatedly edited and updated often accumulate redundant code and unnecessary font downloads. By running such a PCL source file through HP PCL Export instead you can reprocess the file and produce tidy, efficient code again.
