    For some reason when I try to export postscript (File -> Export Layout -> ps) upon inspection of the resultant postscript file with ghostview shows an extremely low resolution export.  When I try printing them, it also is of very low quality.  Is there a way to increase the resolution on this?

    I don't recall this being an issue before, I've used pcb for years and perhaps an older version I was able to extract high resolution printouts.

    (My PCB fab method: homemade / toner resist.)

      I found the problem, this is not a bug.  Turns out that ghostview was "antialiasing" this improperly.  Printing the layout directly from the file (with antialiasing turned off) fixed the problem.

      I thought there was something fishy going on as ps should be vector despite at the end of the day layouts need to be rasterized somewhere...
