TinyTERM for Mac supports both print screen and transparent printing. Print
screen sends the contents of the current screen to the selected printer as plain text,
with no colors or other attributes applied. Transparent printing is described in our
Printers are configured through the Printing tab of the TinyTERM Preferences
Printers 1 through 6 are available through the drop-down list. "Printer 1
(Default)" is used by all terminal emulations for both print screen and transparent
printing. The SCOANSI and Wyse60 terminal types support
multiple transparent printers, so printers 2 through 6 are used only by those
The Transparent Print Destination determines whether printed out put goes
to a Printer or File. If Ignore is selected instead, print
screen requests are ignored, and transparent print jobs come to the screen instead
of the printer.
When printing to a file, if the file does not exist, it's created when the first
print job is sent. New data can Append to an existing file, or
Overwrite the file instead.
When printing to a printer, you can set the number of Page Rows and
Page Columns. The higher the numbers, the more text can fit on a page. More
rows results in shorter characters, and more columns results in narrower
characters. If the printout is too large or small, adjust these numbers.
Turning on Spool Print Jobs will cause TinyTERM to hold the print job in
memory until the selected condition is met. With Print on Key Press set, any
keyboard key will release the print job. With Print on Timeout set, TinyTERM
will wait the specified number of seconds. If no new print data comes in during that
time, TinyTERM will release the print job automatically.
To print the current contents of the screen, select Print Screen from the
File menu, or type ⌘P. If Printer 1 is set to File, the
file will be written to immediately, with no visual indicator. If Printer 1 is set
to Printer, the Print Screen dialog opens:
Select the desired Printer and Presets, or click the PDF
button. The screen will print as plain text to the specified print device, with no
colors or other attributes.
Transparent printing works almost the same way, except that no menu command is
needed. Instead, start the print job from the host system. Depending on the printer
settings, a file will be written or the printer selection dialog will open. Remember
that SCOANSI and Wyse60 emulations can select from multiple printers, rather than
always printing to Printer 1.
