    Hello everybody,

    I have a really strange problem:

    Actually I am using orCAD 10 in windows 8.
    I want to print layout file with actual size for manufacturing of board

    I have heard the idea to do so
    "try saving as a 'Postscript' file with 'print to file - *.ps file type - before then converting to *.pdf" but i do not have that particular software to do so.

    Can anybody suggest me the link of printing and plotting software for orCAD files equivalent to postscript (*.ps) software.


    Thanks in Advance !!!

    Current Windows versions have that capability built in. No need to install third-party programs. Just look for PDF in your list of printers.

    Thanks for your reply !!!

    I know the procedure to print it but
    I am not sure that where any pdf like "dopdf" will give 1-1 print which is as same as original one(i.e. *.max file) without shifting and part of PCB layouting .

    That is why i wanted post script printer driver (*.ps) format file and then convert it pdf by using "dopdf" or something else

    Hope you understand my point !!!
