This little ARexx script makes printing PDF's from Wordworth a bit easier.

1. Copy the script where you like (Wordworth/WWRexx might be a good place).
2. Set up the PostScript printer driver in Workbench (drag from Storage/Printers
to Devs:Printers if necessary)
3. Create a macro in Wordworth for the script.
4. Set up printer in Wordworth to use the Postscript driver
5. Configure Postscript printer to print ot file RAM:WwPostScript.ps
6. Download and install WaitNotify from aminet

Install done!

The macro first asks for the PDF to create.
Next the WW-print is started, press "Ok" if all looks good (Postscript driver is
chosen to print to RAM:WwPostScript.ps).
Wait for the print to finish.
If you didn't install WaitNotify you have to "Press OK when print is ready" in
the requester.
The PDF should now be displayed in AmiPDF.

Trouble shooting:
Prob: I get a blank PDF!
Reason 1: You might have pressed the "Press OK when print is ready"-requester to
soon. Make sure the entire PS is printed.
Reason 2: WaitNotify isn't working as it should. Go figure.

The script is rather straightforward, go have a look-see if something isn't
working. Maybe your paths are wrong? I've used the standard paths in an OS4/4.1

If you find anything that can be improved, tell me so, or better yet: do it
yourself and replace this file!
