Margin

If the AutoCenter option is off, you can adjust the margins by editing the values in the field adjacent to the "Margin L/R/T/B" button. The first value is the left margin, the second is the right margin, the third is the top margin, and the fourth is the bottom margin. All values are in inches.

Background color

The three entries in the field next to the "Background Color: R/G/B" button set the color used for the background of the image window (the method for rendering the background is controlled by the Window Outline toggle button. The three values in the field are the red, green, and blue components, respectively, of the color. The range for each component is 0 to 255.

Window Outline

The "Window Outline" toggle button controls how the background of the image window (the parts beyond the image boundaries but not including the image window controls) is rendered. If the toggle button is on, no background is drawn and the boundary of the image window is indicated with a line drawn in the background color. If the toggle button is off, the background is rendered as a solidly filled rectangle in the background color.

Image Label

If the "Image Label" toggle button is on, a label is included in the output to indicate the current z value, wavelength index, and time point for each image displayed. If the toggle is off, the labels are not drawn. This toggle button is independent of whether or not the current section index is shown on top of the images in the image window: the section label, if any, shown in the image window will not appear in the PostScript rendering.

Print to File

If the "Print To File" toggle button is on, pressing the "Print" button will generate a PostScript file rather than send the PostScript result directly to a printer. On Linux and Mac OS X, this toggle button is always on: MonToPS has not been fixed to interact with the printing mechanisms for those operating systems.

Preview

Pressing the "Preview" button will display on the monitor what the printed output would look like. On Linux and Mac OS X, this button is always disable since MonToPS has not been fixed to recognize the native PostScript viewer.

Print

If the Print To File toggle button is off, pressing the "Print" button opens a dialog to send the rendered PostScript directly to a printer; otherwise, a file selection dialog is displayed to choose the name of the file in which to store the PostScript output.
