More Print Options

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Tue Jul 26, 2005 8:14 am

There doesn't seem to be any way to control printed output. It might be an idea if the printout matched the overview, i.e. if I zoom to view eight glyphs to the screen width in the overview the printout should also have eight columns to a page. Otherwise, I would like an option to set the number of columns in the print dialogue.

I prefer the option to set the number of columns. I'll add it to the to-do list.

I've uploaded a template in DOC format for printing out neat sheets of font samples.

I have used paragraph styles for the glyphs, captions, and footers so it is easy to modify for different fonts or typestyles. The glyphs are not in strict numerical order, but arranged in pairs of uppercase and lowercase rows for more convenient comparison. The ANSI character set follows strict numerical order.

The Print options could include the following:

:arrow: Number of columns
:arrow: Size of glyphs
:arrow: Size of caption
