I’ve run into many Windows applications that for whatever reason don’t have an option to save a modified file or export into a readable format. There’s a trick that I learned back in the Windows 3.1 days that makes any application that can print be able to export a PostScript file. The trick is as follows:
- Set up a Generic PostScript printer as a new printer that can print to FILE only.
- Print your file in the obstinate application to the new printer. Make sure you use the .PS file extension on the newly created file name.
- Enjoy your new output file in Ghostview, Inkscape, or other applications that can read PS files.
