Thot documents can be printed directly from the editor with the ``Print'' command from the ``Document'' menu. This command translates the document into PostScript while producing the same display as that displayed when the command is called . This PostScript display can be saved to a file or sent to a printer. The command displays a form in which you can choose:
Once you have chosen the print optionst, press ``Print'' in the form to start printing or translation to PostScript file.
You can continue to work on the document once printing has been launched. A message in the Thot window indicates when the PostScript document is stored in the printer queue or in the file, according to the required destination.
Note that printing only produces good results if you use a presentation schema defining pages (see section 8.5); otherwise, only the beginning of the document will be printed on paper.
You can also print Thot documents by passing them to a formatter (LaTeX for instance): use the ``Save as'' command (see section 7.8) which produces a file containing the document in the syntax required by the formatter.
