1774Re: [wordperfectmac] Printing in WP - Classic
- May 9, 2005Classic and OS X are two different systems and the printer setup
functions of each don't overlap. So setting up a printer for X won't
give you access to it in Classic (in fact, there are always - in my
experience - two different drivers for printers, X and OS 9/
Classic). Here's what to do:
While you're in WordPerfect, click on the Apple menu, go to Chooser
and you should see your printer on the left side (if you've already
installed OS 9 drivers; if not, install them first and then come back
to this email).
Double-click on the printer in the left box. It should show up
highlighted on the right side (if it doesn't, trash the printer
preferences in the OS 9/Classic System Folder and the printer
extension in "Extensions" in the System Folder and reinstall the
driver from scratch and start again).
Once it shows up highlighted on the right side, you should also see a
button below that says "setup." Click on it, follow the prompts and
then close the Chooser.
You'll then get a message telling you to change your page setup. Do
it, from inside WP. When you do this, the printer driver's software
should come up with some basic global setting options. Check
whatever works for you and then close the window.
Then try printing your document.
