Option: Print to PDF

Bug #171023 reported by Wilsonronl
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Some users in my office are confused by hte need to
either use "Save As" or enter a command in the Print
dialog to produce a PDF file.

A checkbox to specify PDF output would be a lot more
intuitive for non-technical artists.

When option is selected, interpret box as file name even if
the > is not present.

(non-technical users will never use other then a printer
name or file name)

Inkscape is a SVG editor, PDF in one of the multiple export
formats supported (and is not even well supported). I don't
think it make sense to add a button (checkbox) for each
supported fomat.

I am just saying that for nearly all of the applications my
employer's non-technical users use, the Print dialog has
either a "Print to file" or "Print to Postscript" check box.

Since most non-technical users think of PDF as a "print
format", this option is appropriate for the Print dialog.
