Better Printing and PDF Rendering Feedback from T201
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Parent ticket T201

Browser Info

  • Chromium Version 72.0.3626.122 (Developer Build) built on Debian 9.8, running on Debian 9.8 (64-bit)
  • Firefox 60.6.1esr (64-bit)

Portrait Feedback

  • WIshlist: First page includes project image
  • Wishlist: Each page starts on a step, multiple images flow onto the next page instead of one per page (if possible)
  • Fix: FF: When printing in portrait orientation and while viewing any step other than 1, that step in view is displayed on every printed page.

Landscape Feedback
Printing OHAI-Kits in landscape seems to be natural. If we can get each page to start on a step, and have any multiple images flow onto the subsequent pages, it'll be a great default way to have a clean booklet.

  • Wishlist: First page includes step 1 and or at least the project image.
  • Wishlist: Each step starts on it's own page.
  • Wishlist: Multiple images flow onto the same page after the step copy
  • Fix: When printing in landscape orientation and while viewing any step other than 1, that step in view is displayed on every printed page on both FF and Chromium.

Here's what it looks like chromium and firefox in portrait with T377-better-sticky-scroller branch. It's still a little whack with firefox on the first page. Chromium version 72.0.3626.122 (Developer Build) built on Debian 9.8, or Firefox 60.6.1esr running on Debian 9.8 (64-bit).

This is what the T293-header-responsiveness branch print export looks like now.

@Orias do the pdf exports look how you want/expect them to? If so please close this ticket as resolved.

It's behaving on Chromium and looks good for both landscape & portrait, with and without the background graphics and headers.

Firefox still displays some weirdness on both landscape & portrait.

Some step information is lost under the page break:

Printing with Firefox's Simplified view however, cleans things up tremendously:
