Please, could you follow the steps below and return back the results to me?

1. Switch to *Scratch* buffer

2. M-: (setq ps-selected-pages '(1)) RET

3. M-: (insert (ps-setup)) RET

4. Save *Scratch* buffer into a file (settings, for example).

5. C-u M-x ps-print-buffer RET scratch.ps RET

6. Switch to *info* buffer.

7. C-u M-x ps-print-buffer RET info.ps RET

8. Send me back the settings, scratch.ps and info.ps files.

9. Thanks
