Its been a while since I have worked with PlanetPress. Back in the days of PP3 and PP4 I would create a form from the PP application and send that and the data to the PS printer and it would print. It has been so long, I have forgotten how to do that.

Currently we use the production system with the workflow which creates the composed PS files that we then send to the printers.

I would appreciate it if someone can point me in the right direction to see if I can still do this in PP7.

Send your PP form to Workflow.
In Workflow, the form will now be displayed under the PPS/PSM documents section. Create a new LPR Printer Queue and drag&drop the form you just sent onto the new printer queue.

Then, in your process, add a Printer Queue output, tick the printer queue you want to use and then, select the form to print and that's it!
