Let me answer:
Because there are some programs, which can only print postscript (eg. VPDF, OWB, etc.)
Secon reason: perfect printout and much quicker than TP.
I'm definitely not arguing against postscript being a useful feature. The point is that I had the impression that defender was quite happy with how printing worked for him in the past (see original post). If that is the case, then there is no real need to go through the hassle with ghostscript and so on.
And btw, don't forget that there are also many applications that don't output postscript at all but rely on the native API (FlowStudio is one of them but far from the only one).
my problem is that my turboprint settings seem to be messed up somehow.
I can print from Flowstudio for example, but from VPDF or OWB (PS:) my system frezzes immediatly.[ Editiert durch defender 29.05.2018 - 11:02 ]
