Are we talking about insightII from Biosym Tech? If so, edit your file
printer_info in the $INSIGHT_HELP directory and add a line for each
printer you want to see in the chooser.

printer_name print_command [,print_command]

e.g. : g316 lpr -s -P%P %F

where %P will be expand as the name of the printer and %F the name of
the file. See System Guide 7-1
