Printing using the MS Printer Manager..


New member
Hi, I'm wondering if any of ye has had any luck printing Drawings using a standard A3 (or A4 for that matter) colour laser printer? What setting can you use in the print Dialog box?

All I get out is some text gibberish or a .pltfile (which I presume is for a plotter which I don't have)

your help is appriciated,
