How to Speed up Printing in ProTEXT and ProDEX
Problem: My Laser printer prints slowly
Solution: Set your printer driver to handle fonts and graphics efficiently

PART A: --- Setup your Printer Driver -------------------------
1 - From Windows, Select "Start", "Settings" then "Printers"
2 - "Right Click" on your Printer Driver, then select "Properties"
3 - Select the "Fonts" tab, then "Download TrueType fonts as bitmap soft fonts"
4 - Select the "Graphics" tab, then select "Coarse"
5 - Select the "Ok" button

PART B: --- Setup ProTEXT (or ProDEX) -------------------------
1 - Start ProTEXT. Select "File", "Printer Setup" then "Options"
2 - Select the "Fonts" tab, then "Download TrueType fonts as bitmap soft fonts"
3 - Select the "Graphics" tab, then select "Coarse"
4 - Select "Ok"
5 - Select "File" then "Print"
6 - Check the box at the bottom labeled "Enable HPII-III Laser Compatible Fast Printing"
      (Try both settings - Use whichever prints the fastest)
7 - Select "From Sheet: 1" and "To Sheet: 1", and Test Print by pressing "Ok"


Note: This method applies to the ProDEX indexing program as well.
Note: After years of experience, we have found that the HP LaserJet III printer driver is the fastest. You may want to spend a minute to install that driver onto your system, and use it for printing condensed transcripts and indexes. Some of the newer drivers are slow no matter how much you tweak them!
