Have to check all settings for every single print

Post by Pauwehla » Thu May 29, 2014 7:40 pm

Every picture is send as single print-job without remembering the previous print-settings?
Is it possible to avoid having to set paper size, all margins, paper quality, paper source, print quality etc etc on every single image to print?
Its on XnViewpMP 0.68

yes, but this is not a default setting?

i need to re-input A4 all the time?
or is it because I have a US Debian version?

You have to re-input A4 for each print you make, or each time you open XnViewMP?

The page size doesn't seem to be saved in the xnview.ini file:

Code: Select all

[Print]
geometry=@ByteArray(\x1\xd9\xd0\xcb\0\x2\0\0\0\0\x2k\0\0\x1\x32\0\0\x5\x31\0\0\x3\x1e\0\0\x2s\0\0\x1R\0\0\x5)\0\0\x3\x16\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\a\x80)
layout=0
unit=0
autoRotate=false
grayscale=false
leftMargin=0
topMargin=0
rightMargin=0

fixedWidth=10

captionPos=0
header=false
headerInfo=
footer=true
footerInfo={Page number}/{Page count}
headerFont=@Variant(\0\0\0@\0\0\0\x1c\0M\0S\0 \0S\0h\0\x65\0l\0l\0 \0\x44\0l\0g\0 \0\x32@ MHs\xec\xad\xe3\xff\xff\xff\xff\x5\x1\0\x32\x10)
allPages=true
pageStart=1
pageEnd=5
For me, A4 is set when I open XnViewMP, and my printer has A4 paper in it...

Possibly something you can set in your printer interface?? The print interface in XnViewMP is rather unusual (due to a limitation in the design of the QT5 framework, I believe) in that some settings only appear when you click on 'Print', which would normally be the last action which starts the printer:

You might look at the menu that appears when you click 'Print' and see if there is a setting that enables you to set the paper size, as in the 'Preferences' above in my printer interface which leads to a paper size setting.

I don't know, but possibly you will find the solution above...

Comparing XnViewMP (and XnView 'Classic') with another popular image editing program, the printer details such as the current paper size selected do not seem to be saved in the program ini file when the program is closed...

[XnViewMP 0.75 x32 beta (Windows only)]
