The art box defines the extent of the page’s meaningful content including potential white space as intended by the page’s creator. This may be useful on PC displays that get confused if a program attempts to write text to the console while the display is in a graphics mode.

Specifying a ghostscripy output file works fine for printing and rasterizing figures, but sometimes you want images of each page of a multi-page document. CID fonts are PostScript resources containing a large number of glyphs e.

This document describes how to use the command line Ghostscript client. Subpixels are a smaller raster grid which is used ghostscropt for text antialiasing.

To obtain a full overprint simulation, use the psdcmyk or tiffsep device, where the spot colors are kept in their own individual planes. After clicking “Print,” you will be asked to save your newly created PRN file.

The options are the same as specified for -dRenderIntent.

How to Use Ghostscript

PCL andPostScript cannot be handled in ths way, and so all the pages must be interpreted. This cannot be used directly in a cidfmap file because the xx notation in prb is a PDF-only encoding. A guide to international paper sizes can ghosyscript found at http: All output then goes to the Epson printer instead of the display until you do something to change devices.


This means you must exercise caution when using this switch, and probably should not use it at all when processing a mixture of PostScript and PDF files on the same command line.

Ghostscript automatically overprints if needed when the ghodtscript device uses a subtractive process color model.

As of Ghostscript version 9.

Thus if spot colors are used with overprinting, then the appearance of the result can differ between output devices. If this option is included in the command line, source device color values e.

We think this problem has been fixed in Ghostscript version 6. Also, in this case, the font returned by findfont is the actual font named fontnamenot a copy of the prj with its FontName changed to the requested one.

Each general record is a pair. This policy has, no doubt, encouraged PDF generators to be more careful.

Ghostscript currently doesn’t do a very ghostscriph job of deleting temporary files if it exits because of an error; you may have to delete them manually from time to time.

Xdefaults on Unix in a form like this: Absolute path to a directory, which contains fonts to substitute to CID fonts. Decoding name optional The name of a Decoding resource to be used with the font.

Normally, pdfmark is only called for these types for PostScript files or when the output device requests it e.
