PDF printer?

Post Posted: 17.05.2011 16:54

Hi.

Do some of you still use FreePDF XP?? I tried to install it on my new Windows 7 64 bit computer, but there was a problem to install Gostscript. So I am thinking to find another good PDF printer - what do you use?

Yeah, I was actually thinking about that too, because I use PDFedit995, to assemble several PDF files into one file. Is PDF995 good to make PDF drawings??

How did you install the GostScript? Directly from the webpage?

PDF995: Can you make settings, so you can save papersettings, like A3 landscape etc.??

From this location exactly: Location FreePDFXP. ?? I must say I prefer FreePDFXP over PDF995, after I have tried that.

Ok - I tried just to use the file AFPL Ghostscript 8.54, that I also had on my old computer and it seems to work now.

Ok - it works - but it does not work in the same way as on my old computer. On that, I could get a "printer interface", where I could save printer settings, like A3 landscape color, A4 portrait, A3 landscape greyscale etc. - and just choose among those, to suit my print job.

Do you have that on your system Joachim Neumann??

Ok - I have:

Ghostscript: AFPL Ghostscript 8.54.
FreePDFXP: FreePDF 4.04.
Windows 7 64 bit.

Where did you get Ghostscript 8.7? And I have 64 bit Windows. Would that make a difference? Before I had Vista 32 bit.
