Need Win 3.x Laserwriter driver

By dbevins ·
Can anyone help me locate Windows 3.11 drivers for a Laserwriter Select 360/600 dpi? The only ones I can find are missing the 600dpi spec, and output doesn't match screen display from AmiPro 3.1.
Thanks,
Doug

Hi,
If there is a selection on there for the 'program' font, try that. It may help.

Your printer has no fonts for Laserwriter. Windows is substituting the closest definition in its standard fonts. I don't have any machine with Windows 3.x anymore but I still remember this problem.

Here's what you should do. Go to your printer manager from Control Panel. Select your printer (Laserwriter) then click the Add Font. Windows 3.1 will present the (at least 35) standard postscript fonts. Highlight all of them and click Install or Add whatever the button maybe. Then save everythingor close. Now check your wordprocessor. It will show the correct scaled font of your default printer font.
