    I may have to try this option but for years I have used simple MS-DOS batch
    files  such as this one
    printgl map1 /fi
    Skymap is set up to call the graphic output map1 then I hit the batch file
    called "Map 1" on the screen and it prints.  I also have batch files for maps
    2-4 in case I need more than one (just change the appropriate name in Skymap)
