Re: [Closed REQ 5044]: printing from geomview
> I would like to print images from geomview, is it possible ? and how ? Yes, though you'll do it differently depending on which version of geomview you have -- for the SGI, NeXT, or for X. It's easiest on the SGI. Press the Save button on the Tools panel (or press the > key in a graphics window). On the Save panel, scroll down to "SGI Snapshot". Type a file name in the panel's long input field. When you press Return, the camera window will be saved in SGI image format. To print its contents on a Postscript printer, use SGI's /usr/sbin/tops command as in tops yourimage.sgi | lp On the NeXT, geomview can't save its own windows as images, but you can use /NextApps/Grab.app to save a window as a TIFF image, or paste it into an Edit document, for example. Under X, again geomview can't save images of its windows, but you could use xwd (X window dump): xwd > yourimage.xwd (and click on the appropriate camera window when xwd changes the cursor to a crosshair) xpr -device ps -gray 4 yourimage.xwd | lpr Hint: white backgrounds tend to look best when printed.
