I did use RiScript 4.13, but now convert postscript (created on RISC OS) to pdf using GhostScript 8.51 on the PC. It seems far faster than doing the conversion using RiScript 4.13 (under VirtualAcorn) and allows me to manually specify the paper size before the conversion, which although I have it set up correctly in RISC OS in !Printers+.ps.paper, isn't always correctly read by GhostScript.

Examples of the output are on [link] - as you can see the EFF type-1 postscript fonts are retained, which works great. So I'm not sure if upgrading to RiScript 5.0 would give me any benefit yet.

Future versions of RiScript - "Support for printing PDFs from applications" - would this bypass the postscript generation altogether? (e.g. the problems with printing sprites) Creation of password protected pdfs - is this a possibility?
