Why does Print dialogue always show a scaling of 24% for A4?

Recommended Posts

Matt, can I assume that the scaling problems I am having with copying and pasting text from one document to another will also be fixed in the next update?

Matt, having used the new print panel for a few days now, I have just have 2 main comments:

1) not retaining settings in a session is a real pain!  For example, if I set the paper size to something that isn't default, change the scale and then want to print several pages, the print dialogue does not retain the changes, and I have to change all the settings each time!

2) there is a lot of 'beach ball' activity.  Selecting things like the number of copies, or changing the paper size results in a beach ball for a few seconds.

Hi Iain,


Number 1 has already been fixed for the next RC. Number 2 is due to not 'previewing' the job correctly at a lower resolution - we're doing the whole print job at full resolution every time you change anything. I can fix this fairly easily, but it might not be a safe enough fix to add at this stage as I don't want to risk adding instability before our release (which is very, very soon!)


Thanks again,
