Print Preview gone!

Recommended Posts

I have avoided upgrading for a while because of so many things get broken in each new version. Yesterday I dared to go to 6.16.4.8094. Thought it was OK until I went to print a Note. I have always used Print Preview to make adjustments and check the number of pages being printed. Its nothing but a pdf in an Adobe! And no way to set margins anymore, the default seems to be about a half inch. Page Setup is now completely useless. Has no effect on printing. HELP! I would like to stick with the new version, I really like having two databases open a the same time, but this another bug I have found are sending me back to an old one.

What version did you upgrade to? Using the latest beta 6.17.1.8179, I see a "Print Preview..." item on the File menu. Associated hotkey is Ctrl+Shift+P.

I am using the released version 6.16. Sure I can see Print Preview on the menu just like you. Have you clicked on it to see what it does?

Sure I have. It produces a PDF file that, when viewed (mine opens up in Chrome, which is how I have configured as my PDF viewer), that allows me to see how it would look when printed. I'd call that a print preview, of sorts, though not as nice as being able to adjust settings on the fly. You're right about the Page Setup margins -- those seem to be ignored in Print Preview and Print to PDF; orientation seems to work, at least it did when I tried it. I'd call that a bug. I'll report that over in the beta 6.17.1 thread.

Thanks, jafito, for confirming what I saw. A lot of what I do with Evernote is pretty up documents to be printed, most of the time just one page. I have reverted back to 6.7.6 until I hear good news.

No problem -- I very rarely print anything at all (mostly crossword puzzles for my wife :)), much less from Evernote, so I never really noticed that one. Hope that it gets fixed soon.

Interesting. I'm a little curious as to why you picked Evernote for this purpose. 90% of the threads on this forum come under the heading of "Evernote is great at doing a lot of things, but its editor really reeks." Which it kinda does, though things have improved a good deal lately. Using it to pretty up documents seems counterintuitive to me.

Well Dave, I don't need much of an editor. I need a place to store everything and then find it, and have it accessible from anywhere and any computer. And when I print documents is doesn't take much. If I need to get fancy I go to Google or Word.  I see now reason why they should have broken print preview, or a lot of other things either.

Thanks for the reply. I guess "prettying up" is relative--a dash of paint can work in Evernote, while complete redecorating requires other software, as you say. A lot of things did get broken over the last year or two, some of it having to do with changes to underlying Chromium code, or something like that, over which EN had no control. Why print preview should be one of those, however, escapes me too.

Thanks for the report. The print preview is now expected to show in the default PDF viewer. To access the page select option,  select File > Print. 

Currently, margins set from the page setup option are not applied to the printed page. We're aware of that issue and working on a fix.
