       print.ini — survex printer settings


       The print.ini file contains printer descriptions for the Survex printer

   File Format
       The format of the print.ini file is similar to the .ini files  used  on
       Microsoft  Windows.   The  file  is divided into sections, each section
       corresponding to a separate printer description.  A section starts with
       a section name in square brackets, e.g. aven’s built-in printer support
       uses the aven section:


       followed by some options of the form <option>=<setting>, e.g.:


       In the  supplied  print.ini  each  option  is  preceded  by  a  comment
       (indicated by a semicolon ’;’) briefly explaining the option.

Customising Printer Settings

       If  you  wish  to  change  the  size of the font used for labels or the
       colours used you need to override some of the setting in print.ini.

       You shouldn’t modify the master print.ini (located in /usr/share/survex
       on  Unix, or in the same directory as the Survex program files on other
       systems), or your changes will be  overwritten  by  upgrades.   Instead

          ·  /etc/survex/print.ini (Unix - system-wide settings)

          ·  ~/.survex/print.ini (Unix - per user settings)

          ·  myprint.ini  in  the  directory  where Survex is installed (other

       If one of these files contains a setting then aven will use it  instead
       of  the  setting  in  the master print.ini.  Any settings not specified
       will still fall back to the values in print.ini.
