Dear Maxime,
Nice work so far. I would volunteer to the help specify some print formats if you would like some assistance with setting up report configurations. I know you are very busy. Good work on your project.

Gtk has a native print functionnality set, I have already tested and will probably uses.
This permit to direclty print or save into a pdf file.

Just because I'm a quite printless man, what all of you need so much to print, and what to print from HomeBank ?

Hello Maxime,
We need to be able to print out summary reports for review or to use as
documentary support in preparing tax returns or other information.

+ wish : add print and pdf output

I would love this functionality to be included, I may add it myself.

I already spent all of 2 minutes to change the automatic transactions maximum days from 100 to 36500, increasing that number definitely needed doing :)

I think at least a PDF output would be great. Direct print could wait if the PDF option was available (or the opposite, on Linux it's easy to use the build-in PDF converter when a print is needed).

I'm a printless man myself too, but being able to get a PDF to send to third parties is quite needed.

So most of you need to print mainly from the report dialogs.
Can you specify which one is the most needed for print? statistics ? any other
My goal is to organize the print implementation step by step, has I would probably enable to do all print part at once.
So I will implement this by priority order if possible, and include maybe the most urgent one into v4.5

1. Account Statement for the period (For each account)
2. Account Summary&nbsp;3. Income , Expenditure &amp; Balance Report (All Statistics- Categaory wise, sub category ,etc.)4.Others can wait
Thanks for taking up on priority in v4.5.
Yours sincerely,Jayantilal B Kalaiya

To build upon the above suggestions, it would be useful to print or create a pdf for the following:

* Transaction list (homebank already produces this) with totals.
* Balance sheet https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balance_sheet (example: https://decollins1969.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/wb_balance_sheet1.gif)
* Income statement https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Income_statement (example: http://www.immi.gov.au/about/reports/annual/2006-07/html/_img/Financials/GIFS_financials/income-statement/financials_extractedPage275.jpg)

For the above, it would be helpful to be able to specify:
* categories to include
* date range

First thanks for the new look in 4.5 and cleaner English terminology.
Second balance sheets and income statements are business software and is not appropriate for free software.
Lastly, just add pdf output for all existing reports, and skip print. Print drivers change with every Windows version and will always be a source of bugs. Print from pdf and let adobe keep drivers up to date.

summary: - wish : add print and pdf output
+ wish : add pdf export (for print purpose)

So, as a summary, here is what you will be able to export as pdf:
1) account transaction, according the current view (with active filter)
2) statistics report: graph + list
