Yikes, that's a good one. Let's see. The NSGraphicsContext your NSView will get will come from the NSPrintOperation.....
But you don't want anything to do with that.

Maybe you can make a NSGraphicsContext category? Add a method that will take this PS code and it will forward it on for you? I don't know, just late night ideas....

Hi,

i wonder if it is possible to send postscript data directly to a printer
instead having a view creating this data. Is this possible with the
GNUstep printing architecture? I recently started to work on ViewPDF again to create the 1.0 version. One thing to implement is printing. PDFKit can build postscript data for a number of pages of a document but i don't know
how to sent this data to a printer. I don't want the PDF view to do
postscript
creation because the PDF content is displayed as bitmap image which
produces huge amounts of data when converting to postscript.

thanks in advance
Stefan
