Can't see printing preferences (Mac 10.5, Inkscape .47)
« on: August 08, 2010, 08:31:30 PM »
Hi. I have a brand new Silhouette SD and am trying to use it with Inkscape .47 on a Mac (OS 10.5 Leopard). I have the Craft Robo plugin v1.61 installed. I can see the Silhouette as a printer from inside Inkscape, but do not see the Printing Preferences anywhere on the print screen. Anyone know what to do with this configuration to make it work?

Ooooo Ksnits

I will endeavour to try and find out any info for you, but my experience stems from using windows; so I may throw your query out to the rest of the members....

Hi,

I'm not sure about what you are asking.  I have Mac 10.6.4 and when I select print from the file menu I see this.

By working across the menu bar I can pick pretty much all of the preferences I need to print with.  I don't have the silhouette but I can print to any of my printers, I've never tried to print to the scanner tho.

Can you show/describe what you are seeing?

I can use a regular printer. The problem is that with the Silhouette (and other cutters) you need to be able to select the cut line before sending to the printer. The screen capture you put up is perfect. If you look at Cardsulike's screen shots from the same place, there is a "Printer Preferences" button that enables you to get to the Silhouette's cutting information. I don't know how to access this info without that button. There must be a way. I'm hoping any Mac users with a similar cutter (Wishblade, etc) might know?
