RAW and EMF.> having printer problems. It is best
to set it to RAW then since that will be the printers 'language'. Also if
you are doing DOS printing, you will probably want to set it to RAW.
Another source > A raw spool file is a one that is sent to the Windows spooler unprocessed (which is why it's called "raw"). The raw file is used to send Postscript commands to a Postscript printer. The Postscript commands are understood by the printer, but are just plain data to the Windows spooler. The raw format is device-dependent and slower. If printing problems occur while using the EMF format, they can sometimes be fixed by simply changing the format to "raw" in the printer Properties.
