M1.x - EPIC has no Printing Capability


Keywords: EPIC, print

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Currently, EPIC does not have printing capability.



You may use a "screen capture" utility to do this.

Use the UNIX Snapshot function:

Snapshot is an OpenWindows XView utility that allows users to save images from their Workstation screens into a raster file.

For more information, run the following on the UNIX command line:

man snapshot


On a PC, you can copy the active window (EPIC, for instance) to the clipboard by pressing ALT + PRINT_SCREEN. Then, open Paint (or anything that allows an image, such as Word) and paste it in. You can then print that document.

Alternatively, you can get a shareware screen
capture program (try www.download.com).

This problem will be solved in an upcoming EPIC update.
