Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

In general viewing a topic in Printable and then trying to actually print it is completely broken in Dakar in the Pattern Skin.

The text is shifted to the right and the text is cut off at the right margin.

In Firefox tables are often ignored.

It seems the Printable mode has not ever been tested for its actual purpose.

I am testing in Windows XP.

Printing not possible must be an urgent bug.

Test case. Open any topic. You must be using Pattern Skin. Now click the printable button and do print priview. Try different topics.

Try both IE and FF. They fails in different modes. Tables disappear in FF when they are wide.

Changing to Extension: PatternSkin


There have been changes in the layout. Print template was lagging behind.

Wide verbatim blocks will always be cut off. There is no way to get that printed well.

SVN 7749.


I have re-opened this bug

It still cuts the page on the right side.

Did you hard code a paper size?

And if you did - you probably adjusted it to Letter size which is a paper format only used in USA/Canada. In most of the world we use A4 which is more narrow. And the actual printable area depends on the printer.

The left margin seems to be very wide also. Almost 20% of the paper.

OK. So Arthur is European and uses A4. Thanks for that info on IRC.

So the explanation for the error must be another then. I was just guessing for a possible root cause.

I have attached two screenshots from Internet Explorer print preview to show how it looks.

The print preview looks the same in Firefox

I have removed the print page width (SVN 7807).


Yes. Confirmed. Looks great. Thanks.
