If you have Unix, you might try my XFWINDOW program.  It's essentially
a normal direct graphics window, but has the special property that it
records all graphics commands.  Then you can simply press a button and
the output goes to the printer, or a file, or both.  It has the
capability to automatically thicken lines when sending PS output.

I haven't updated the web page recently.  If you have IDL 5.3 or 5.4,
you will need to recompile, per the instructions.
