Print Dialog Problems

Recommended Posts

In macos Mojave Apple changed the way printers work. This resulted for some printers in completely unusable print dialogs in Apple applications like Pages or Preview. All the printer specific settings are now in one long list with contradicting settings. The pre-1.8 versions of all the Affinity applications did not have these new dialogs (see screenshot from AD 1.7.3):


The new 1.8.x versions do have the new dialogs:


The list of settings in the dialog is actually much longer than what you can see in the screenshot above. But the two paper size settings show that something is definitely amiss …

I know that this is in part a problem of Epson and Apple. But: Why did you have to change this behaviour in the new versions? Why not keep the old print dialogs? Adobe Applications do not have this problem because they use their own print dialogs.

Hi @mala

1.7 did not use the correct print dialogue (it did not have access to all the print features). We have fixed this in 1.8 and the dialogue should display all the printer settings. This print dialogue should be the same as the one you find in native Apple apps (Pages, Numbers, etc)

This is not a bug I'm afraid. If you see options that don't make sense in both our app and Pages for example, I suggest you get in touch with Epson/Apple to get them fixed.

In the native Apple apps the print dialogue is as unusable as in Affinity 1.8. This is a known problem since Mojave came out so I can't expect a solution from Epson/Apple. I'll stay with 1.7 then …
