GhostScript is a free implementation of the PostScript language which enables MusiCAD to save music as PDF, JPG and PNG. By default all printing is performed using GhostScript. The GhostScript dialog [Options|Preferences|GhostScript] makes it possible to fine-tune GhostScript operation and even replace GhostScript with another postscript interpreter, as is required when using GPL-licensed software (GhostScript) bundled with non GPL software (MusiCAD)
- [GhostScript (GS)]
- It is possible to print without GhostScript: just uncheck GS.
- The filename of the actual GhostScript executable: gs550.exe, if version 9.50 is installed gswin64.exe would be used.
- Command line options to be presented to GhostScript:
- -q quiet-mode
- -dBATCH non-interactive
- -dNOPAUSE don't pause between pages
- [GS Device]
- Printer driver to be used, usually mswinpr2
- [GS directory]
- Directory where the GhostScript files are located, version 5.50 uses a sub directory of the main installation directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Musys Software\MusiCAD 4.2\gs The optional 9.50 version would be installed in C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.50\bin
- [GS destination]
- Full filename for the temporary postscript file generated
MusiCAD will draw black notes on a white page by default.
You may override the coloring scheme as needed/desired using the right pane color settings. Staff lines are drawn gray by default. Some printers show the color grey with quite large dots. Setting the staff line-color to black will circumvent the dithering problem.
- Color print
- Must be activated to print colors. On a black&white printer you should disable color-printing.
