[Help] Better Print button

Post by Victor Delta » Tue Sep 01, 2009 8:29 pm

Hi

I don't like Print buttons that sent data straight to the default printer without giving one the chance to select the various options first ie I prefer Ctrl + P or Print...

Unfortunately the Avant print button falls into the former category.

Is there any way to replace it with a print button that does what I prefer please?

Many thanks,

V

Use the Print Preview button instead - you can change various options there, including the printer used.

Thanks for that but surely there is a way to create a custom button and script that effectively simulates Ctrl + P - so one can go in one step to the Print options box?

No problem. Just a shame, IMHO, that one cannot add the new button to the standard buttons on the standard toolbar!

Still, Avant's pretty good despite that! :thumbup: (and who knows, perhaps one day...?)
