Request: Page-break printing (A4 paper)

Post by budz45 » Fri Aug 22, 2014 5:33 pm

Hi,

Is it possible that XnViewMP could implement an Office style printing option of page breaks.

Myself, as well as users, would need this for printing exceedingly long length image files, namely screenshots of whole page websites, so that each A4 paper is used in the printer and the image is sized to best fit

Feature Request: print large sized images on multiple A4

Post by mrwul » Sun Mar 08, 2015 9:38 am

I know it has been asked before
See
Request: Page-break printing (A4 paper)
print collection custom size and single print poster size

Say you want to print a image (like a map) with
Print size 55.02x37.11 cm (=21.66x14.61") on multiple A4 pages, with 1 cm overlapping

I think XnView/XnViewMP has no option to deal with that.

It would really be nice if that would be available...

Keep up the good work!

Print Long image file

Say I have a screenshot of a website. Properties say the length is 29x150cm (...)
Obviously this cannot be printed, papersize 21x29cm

Suggestion to add a feature to XnViewMP to handle such prints.

e.g.
- split pages (show page-breaks) that can be grabbed/moved up/down a little, so text is not cut
- resize width
- show printpreview

I guess a neverending request ... :wink:

It would roughly be something like PosteRazor (no updates since 2008).
There aren't many simple tools aronnd that can do this.
There even is a portable version of PosteRazor.
Think though it would be nice if this would be available in XnView
(maybe as a plugin?)

Anyway ...
Hopefully it will be built in one day.

(p.s. regretfully it is not possible to upload files and have them displayed as thumbnail, so a post with a few screenshots gets very big... I am sorry)
