Microsoft Windows makes things so easy to use that they are too complicated to understand. Most of the printer formating is done in Windows so the PRN file is ment to be coppied directly to the printer, but only the printer that is selectedby the printing program.
You could set your default printer in Windows to the 'genreic, text only' and see how it works. You will loose a lot of the detail and some charts will be barely readable because of loss of formating..
