Automated printing option now available with PrintShop Mail
DECEMBER 6, 2002 — The latest Windows
version of Atlas Software's PrintShop Mail
application makes available a
"hands off" feature that allows you
to predefine PrintShop Mail jobs and include
them in an automated work flow.
This feature, which is called the
"Enable for Automatic Printing"
option, provides an
API (Application Program Interface)
that allows you to start and control
print jobs automatically, either by
specifying a script file
or by using another application to
send DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) commands
to PrintShop Mail.
The "Enable for Automatic Printing"
option can be obtained free of charge until
March 1, 2003. After that date, it will be
available for purchase.
