Tomy surprise,after I installed v6 to my laptop, when I tried to plug the laptop to my black and white laser printer, there was no place to plug it in. Is there a way to email it to the computer to which my laser printer is connected?

You would have to print it to a PDF file to print from a computer that does not have PatternMaster installed on it and then email that file. If PatternMaster is installed on the computer connected to the printer, you can just email the .LAS file as you would any other type of file. You can also save the file to a flash drive.

Oh OK. The target computer has v 5. That shouldn't matter, should it?

You would have to open the .LAS file in v5 Pattern Editor to print it but that will work.

We have all of our printers networked through our router. I can print from my iPad, laptop, desktop, etc. Is that an option for your laser printer?

Just wondering, how do you network all of your printers through your router?

The easiest, but costly, way of doing it is to have ePrinters which hook up to your wifi. Without ePrinters, you need Ethernet cables going into your router or if your house has Ethernet wiring going to some of your outlets, then you can hook it up at those spots. ,I'm definitely no expert. Know just enough to ne dangerous.

Another thought: if you can use a sub-router (not the technical name) that plugs into an electrical outlet, then you can attach your printer into it. I use Mac products, so I use an Airport Express for this purpose. Also now have all ePrinters.

Good luck.

I Use a programme called TeamViewer. It is a free download if you use it for personal use only. My plotter only works on
my desktop. I design on my laptop. I have PM on both computers, and when ready to print open TeamViewer on both computers and send the file from PM on laptop to PM on desktop. Then I print from desktop. Works very well for me.

I don't know very much about it, my husband sets all this up but basically we also use Airport Express (MAC household) and the last few years have chosen printers that are wifi/AirPrint compatible. So the printers can be accessed remotely on the network just like the computers are.

I can't remember how things were set up with our older computers. I seem to remember using at various times either an Ethernet connection or just hooking the printer up to main desktop similar to what Kirsten described and removing in through the desktop.
