Each time you print, the Raster Image Printer will prompt you with the Save Image File dialog to choose where you want save the output file. You can change this so that the output file is always saved in the same location without showing the dialog.

All output options are controlled through the Printing Preferences dialog. Close any open applications that you will be printing from before making changes as not all applications will see your changes until they are re-started.

Step by Step Instructions

 

Changing the prompting options using the following steps is a global change, meaning that no matter what application you use when printing to Raster Image Printer, the Save Image As dialog will not appear.

 

1.From the Windows Start menu, go to All Programs -  Raster Image Printer  11.0 - Properties...

2.Click on the Save tab in the Printing Preferences dialog.

In the Output Directory field, type in the folder where you want to save your output files. You can also use the Browse... button to find a folder on your computer. If the field is left blank, the Documents folder is used by default.

Leave the Filename field blank to have Raster Image Printer use the name submitted by the application when the file is printed as the output file name. If you specify a filename, and have the Overwrite always option checked, each print will overwrite the previous file.

Click the Overwrite always check box to turn on the automatic overwrite option. If an image file of the same name already exists, it will be replaced by the new file and no warning dialog will be shown.

Click the Prompt only when needed check box to turn off the Save As dialog.

3.Click the Apply button and then the OK button to set the changes. If the output directory you typed in does not exist, you will be prompted to confirm creation of the new directory.

4.Printing to Raster Image Printer from any application now saves the output files into the chosen directory without displaying the Save Image dialog box.
