Printing vector (not raster) graphics

Printing vector (not raster) graphics

Printing vector (not raster) graphics

It's always bugged me that RISA prints everything as raster graphics. It would probably be even easier to program it if they just did vector graphics instead. This format wastes file size (and with lots of images, it adds up quickly) as well as removes the ability to select/copy text and to zoom in on complex areas to see a better, non-pixelated view.

Here's the weird thing, I JUST got a report from someone else, printed back in 2019, which has VECTOR GRAPHICS on the graphical printouts and not the typical raster graphics. This makes the label and any loading views much more readable, or even readable at all when multiple text all tries to overlap.

The reports are printed as vector graphics, so I know the software can do it, I just can't figure out how to get the graphics themselves to be vector graphics.

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.


RE: Printing vector (not raster) graphics

I agree, what I've done is use Bluebeam "reduce file size" tool to reduce my report size and it works pretty well.
