Printing to a file

You can print to a file instead of to a printer. This is useful if you don’t have a printer attached to your computer, or if you want to print the document on a printer other than the one attached to your computer.

For more information about printing files to disk, see “Printing to files.”

WordPerfect Office tip Printing to a file

When you print to a file, you can print directly from DOS to the printer it was formatted for. For example, if the file you printed to is named LETTER, saved to C:\, and the computer you are using is printing to LPT1, type copy/b c:\letter at a DOS prompt, then press Enter. You can also print the file using the DOS Print command. See the DOS reference manual for more information.
