Low Resolution eps links when printing - Macromedia Freehand

Hi Everyone, I hope someone out there can help me troubleshoot a printing problem I'm having. I'm on a Mac platform, OS X Jaguar V.10.2.3, and using Freehand 10. When I print to my color printer, my eps links come out all pixelated. I cannot seem to change this. I've played with the preferences, but to not avail. The same links print out just fine from Illustrator 10. Any advice? I appreciate anything you can tell me....

    Default Low Resolution eps links when printing

    Hi Everyone,

    I hope someone out there can help me troubleshoot a printing problem I'm having.

    I'm on a Mac platform, OS X Jaguar V.10.2.3, and using Freehand 10.

    When I print to my color printer, my eps links come out all pixelated. I cannot seem to change this. I've played with the preferences, but to not avail.

    The same links print out just fine from Illustrator 10.

    Any advice?

    I appreciate anything you can tell me.

    If your printer is an inkjet it prints WYSIWYG or what you see is what you get. Illustrator shows a higher resolution on your screen and therefore it prints clearer. You can change the on-screen resolution in Freehand by going to Preferences>Redraw and set the resolution to Low, Medium, High or Full. That should help.

    You need a postscript RIP. Embedded EPS files can only be printed using a
    Postscript Printer. I doubt your ink-jet is a post script printer, so you'll
    need to use a Postscript RIP like GhostScript.

    Or, an easier route, is to just save it as a PDF and then print that.
