GSview is a graphical interface for Ghostscript. Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript page description language used by laser printers. For documents following the Adobe PostScript Document Structuring Conventions, GSview allows selected pages to be viewed or printed. GSview requires Ghostscript.

Features include:

  • Display and print PostScript and PDF files.
  • View pages in arbitrary order (Next, Previous, Goto).
  • Page size and Orientation are automatically selected from DSC comments or can be selected using the menu.
  • Print selected pages using Ghostscript.
  • Convert pages to bitmap, PDF or PostScript.
  • Selectable display resolution, depth, alpha.
  • Single button zoom.
  • Extract selected pages to another file.
  • Copy display bitmap to clipboard.
  • Save clipboard bitmap as BMP file.
  • Add bitmap or user preview to EPS file (Interchange, TIFF or Windows Metafile)
  • Graphically select and show bounding box for EPS file.
  • Extract bitmap preview or PostScript from DOS EPS file.
  • Extract text or search for text.
  • Can read gzip and bzip2 compressed PostScript and PDF files.

Version Note

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
