Print Preview

Question

What is the possibility of adding a "Print Preview" option?

If possible, I always use it on other apps...sometimes prevents the waste of huge (sometimes expensive) sheets of paper!

Thanks

I'd love to see this too. Mac OS X has its own built-in print preview, but it requires waiting for a PDF to be rendered to the screen, so an instant preview built into VW along the lines of the one used in Microsoft Office 2004 (for Mac at least) would be great, and would probably help avoid a lot of printing mistakes.

Put me on the instant notification list when THIS feature is enabled. It boggles my mind that VW does not support print previews...especially for a Windows box!

Clearly this needs to be resolved. confused.gif

Always print to PDF >review page > then to Plotter/Printer.

This approach also provides opportunities for post-editing, archiving and

uploading to a server's client directory. VW output from screen WYSIWYG

to device depends on the printer driver installed.

Microsoft Office -programs are several magnitudes simpler than VW. Even so, they very often fail in the print preview.

The MacOS preview, on the other hand, is always exactly what will be printed with the specified printer: what you see is what would be sent to the printer.

Yes, it can take a few seconds, even minutes, but, especially considering that any view in VW is extremely close to what will actually print, I prefer that.

Do we again have a case where people who chose the cheap option are not happy with what they bought? Hey, Katie did make a pertinent point about the (financial) implications when choosing the operating system! You get what you pay for.
