Slave Printing - Print Dialog Box Delay

MacWise version 10.7.996 fixes a problem with slave printing (or aux printing).
The symptom was that the print dialog box was taking too long to appear after the print job stopped. Sometimes it would never appear until you manually unchecked "Printer On" under the File Menu. This problem started with version 10.7.99 and is fixed with 10.7.996

The timeout is now set to 5 seconds. MacWise will wait 5 seconds for the host to stop sending print data before displaying the print dialog box.

Aux Printing with MacWise

If you use slave printing (or aux printing) under host control, you may have had problems with the Print Dialog box popping up for every line of print.

Starting with version 10.7.99, MacWise will now print an entire job without the Print Dialog box popping up after every line of print. (Some host computers issued Printer On / Printer Off commands for every line of print instead of waiting for the whole print job to finish.)

Previous versions of MacWise got around this problem with an option to ignore the Printer Off command from the host and then the user would manually toggle printing off to get the print dialog box to appear. You should no longer need to use that option (Priner Setup under the File Menu / Ignore Printer-Off Commands from Host)
