If you print to tiff you get a much better resolution. A A4 file is about 30-50 MB. After you open the tiff file in a pictureeditor an shange it to 2 color, crop and resize to the size you want. We do use this for all our pictures for spare parts lists and manuals.
Heres a little tipI like to use CGMs, they work really well in most MS applications and such. They are much smaller files and the drawing lines tend to come out much better, even when rescaled in the application. THe best way to make a drawing cgm is change the scheme to black on white and than save it out. In order to use the cgm you need to make sure that you have the filter installed for graphics file in the office setup, and its under filters I believe. It does not get installed by default typical install.
Sorry, I missed it was a drawing and you were using "Save As". We print to "Generic Postscript"and check to a file. We can then import into Ghostscript and output in many different formats. Does a screen grabbing utility work? Edited by: donha
