doc turns to pdf before I can print

Post by leenie » Fri May 03, 2019 3:26 pm

Hello and thank you for this wonderful program!
I am wondering why my doc files always turn into pdf before I can print them. Am I misunderstanding how the program works or am I doing something wrong? I printed 6 pages (textmaker turned doc file into pdf first) in 10 minutes and I can't tie up the printer like that at work.

Under Linux, TextMaker creates a temporary PDF or PostScript file, then sends it to the printer. This is how printing is usually done under Linux. It is done automatically (so I am wondering what you are actually seeing from this hidden action). What problem are you experiencing with it?

There is a long wait for document to spool to the printer (more than a minute). I have to leave document open after telling it to print or it will not print if I close the window too soon.
