StyleScript 5.0

  • InfoWave Imaging StyleScript 5.0

Inexpensive ink-jet printers keep raising the bar on image quality, but they still don't speak PostScript, the Adobe page-description language that's necessary for producing clean EPS files. Enter StyleScript, a utility that converts Hewlett-Packard's DeskJet 1120C and Epson's Stylus Color 740, 740i, 760, 860, 900, 900N, 900G, and 1160 into PostScript 3 output devices. In our tests, StyleScript produced a clean, non-jaggy EPS file from QuarkXPress, though printing took up to twice as long as with the native driver. And the software didn't work when Mac OS 9's Multiple User feature was enabled, a conflict that's mentioned in the PDF documentation. Otherwise, installation went without a hitch.
