1 Choose File menu > Print to open the Print dialog box.
2 (Mac OS) From the pop-up menu below the Presets pop-up menu, choose Corel Painter IX.
3 In the Print Type area, select one of the four print types that Corel Painter supports.
• Enable the Color Quick Draw (Mac OS) or GDI Printing (Windows) option if your printer is not a PostScript printer. Some common examples are the Hewlett-Packard Deskjet, the Canon® Bubble Jet, and the EPSON Stylus®. You cannot print separations to non-PostScript printers.
• Enable the Color PostScript option to print to a color PostScript device. The Minolta QMS™ ColorScript and Tektronix® color thermal printers are examples of color PostScript printers.
• Enable the Separations option to print separations. The output consists of four pages, one each for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. You can print separations from Corel Painter with any PostScript device, including high-resolution imagesetters.
• Enable the B & W PostScript option if you are printing on a black-and-white PostScript laser printer.
Corel Painter places a color bar, registration marks, and color name on each of the four separated plates.
4 If you want to use the Color Management System to control printing, click the Toggle Color Correction icon ^J on the vertical scroll bar so that the icon displays color bars. For more information, refer to "Understanding Color Management" in
Corel Painter uses the device's default screening information to produce high-quality color separations. If Output Preview is off when you save to EPS format, Corel Painter uses the Color Studio separation tables with your device's default screening. For more information, see "Saving in EPS File Format for Printing" in the Help.
