Bypass Postscript for printing

Is it possible to checkBypass Postscript for printing in Server/Publisher mode?


In the .qvw I can print reports to pdf using that option, but when I put the same file in the Server/Publisher I get reports with poor graphic quality.

It is similar to what happens when you don't check bypass postscript on QlikView desktop application.

This can be done this way:

- Go to:

C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikViewBatch

- Open the settings.ini file in Notepad

- Under [Settings 7] add a line:

SlowPrinting=1 (Important: Add this line at the top of the list i.e directly under [Settings 7]

- Start the QV services by restarting the system (or by restarting the services manually: Computer/Manage/Services and Applications/Services/Qlikview [..], Start all)
