10.4: Automate 'print to file' printing from Classic
Authored by: fredrikw on Oct 09, '06 05:12:54PM

This certainly sounds a lot easier, if not all that obvious!

I couldn't get it to work when I tried though, maybe because I already had some printers installed, but I couldn't just select LaserWriter 8 without selecting one of the printers to the right. And when I chose to print from Classic, I only got the selected printer, not the ones from OS X.

Well, this is absolutely guaranteed to work if your system is working correctly, and works for absolutely every Classic application I've tried. Perhaps you need to clean out the older printer drivers - download Printer Setup Repair, go to Classic Mode Management, and delete the contents of the Printer Preferences folder. Then restart Classicc.

I forgot to mention that in the Chooser, you simply click on LaserWriter 8 in the left panel and then close the window by pressing Ctrl-W. You do NOT need to select anything in the right panel.
