Another way, you can use a printer driver called PDFPrinter. This printer driver has a free version in internet. You can print everything (text, graphics...) in a file: a file name is asked for when you print to this driver.

Ud. puede definir en configuración de la impresora, entrar en propiedades, luego en detalle seleccionar el puerto de la impresora "file" en vez de lpt1 ...
Puede hacer una copia del controlador de la impresora y tener uno en lpt1 y otro en file, en el momento de la impresión se le preguntará el nombre de archivo que desea generar.
