Release Notes

Adds the ability to preview Postscript and Encapsulated Postscript (PS and EPS) to Vista and Windows 7. Explorer and Outlook 2007 are common places you might see the previews. This release fixes a number of small bugs.

Please install ghostscript first - this utility depends on it being installed to work! I've tested against 8.63, 8.64, and 8.70, but there is no reason any other relatively modern version of ghostscript shouldn't work. I have seen lots of rendering bugs in 8.62, so I'd recommend installing at least 8.63!

Known Issues
There are two issues I know about. First, the scroll wheel does not work to move through the rendered images of a long postscript file. The second is it is difficult or impossible to resize an Explorer or Outlook window when the preview is being displayed. Work around is to display a non-postscript file, resize the window, and then display the post-script file.

Bug Fixes
A number of crashes were fixed. The resolution of the rendered images was also improved.

Reviews for this release

This Little tool Improves my Performance at work a lot. It has a Few small Bugs, But nothing that has caused me Pain. My One suggestion is compatibility for a few more File Types. That Said I love this tool, Thanks Gordon...
