-== Welcome ==
-
-Welcome to your wiki! This is the default page we've installed for your convenience. Go ahead and edit it.
-
-=== Wiki features ===
-
-This wiki uses the [[http://www.wikicreole.org/|Creole]] syntax, and is fully compatible with the 1.0 specification.
-
-The wiki itself is actually a hg repository, which means you can clone it, edit it locally/offline, add images or any other file type, and push it back to us. It will be live immediately.
-
-Go ahead and try:
-
-{{{
-$ hg clone http://bitbucket.org/codepoet/cups-pdf-for-mac-os-xwiki/
-}}}
-
-Wiki pages are normal files, with the .wiki extension. You can edit them locally, as well as creating new ones.
-
-=== Syntax highlighting ===
-
-You can also highlight snippets of text, we use the excellent [[http://www.pygments.org/|Pygments]] library.
-
-Here's an example of some Python code:
-
-{{{
-#!python
-
-def wiki_rocks(text):
-	formatter = lambda t: "funky"+t
-	return formatter(text)
-}}}
-
-You can check out the source of this page to see how that's done, and make sure to bookmark [[http://pygments.org/docs/lexers/|the vast library of Pygment lexers]], we accept the 'short name' or the 'mimetype' of anything in there.
-
-Have fun!
+== Introduction
+
+[[http://cip.physik.uni-wuerzburg.de/~vrbehr/cups-pdf/|CUPS-PDF]] is a backend module for [[http://www.cups.org/ |CUPS]](Mac OS X's printing system) by Volker C. Behr that, rather than printing to a device, prints straight to PDF files.
+
+Why use this rather than a simple "Save as PDF" in the print dialog?
+
+* Pressing return is faster.
+* Batch-print through the writer to convert documents to PDF.
+* Common save location for all generated PDFs.
+
+== Installation (Snow Leopard)
+
+* Install the package.
+* Open System Preferences and go to Printing.
+* Click on Add Printer (the + at the bottom).
+* "CUPS-PDF" should be in the list, select it.
+* Select "Postscript" from the "Print Using" menu and pick "Generic postscript color printer"
+* Click Add
+
+== Use
+
+Print to the printer normally.  The output will be in {{{/Users/Shared/CUPS-PDF}}} in a folder with your user account's name.  Feel free to make an alias to this folder on your desktop or put it in the Dock.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
