How do I "Print To File"?

VP install banner.jpg

ViewPlus printer drivers incorporate the option to "Print to file".  This will save the printer output to a file with a .prn or .tdsx extension.


PRN files are associated with Tiger Designer, and you may open a PRN file for editing in Tiger designer or Tiger Viewer.

Tiger Viewer is installed with your Printer Driver, while Tiger Designer is installed with the Tiger Software Suite.
Tiger Designer is useful for enhancing graphics to make them more useful for blind readers, while Tiger Viewer has limited editing functionality.
