Pinta prints in 1 cm x 0.5 cm area on paper

This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

using pinta-1.5-preview-20121103 on Windows XP.

Test No. 1:
1. I created print-screen and crop most of the image and save the image.
2. Print from toolbar, select printer and Print button.
Pinta prints out the image, but image is printed as 1 cm x 0.5 cm area on paper, so totally useless.

Test No. 2:
1. Print from toolbar and I have selected virtual printer "CubePDF Writer" installed from
2. When virtual printer is selected it offers to save to PDF file instead of real printing.
3. Opening created PDF file it clearly shows that image is getting printed way way way bigger that image actually is.

- image.png (image file I would like to print from Pinta),
- printed_image.pdf (the size of image that is send to the printer)

This is a more general issue, really - there should be options for how to scale / position the printed image on the page.

Changed in pinta:
importance: Undecided → Medium
milestone: none → 1.5

Cam, I agree, but at first why not jut put it at scale 1 : 1. Another useful scale would be to have fit on paper, but this can be more complicated, because users are using different printing formats - but maybe we can look at some other open source project how did they solve all of this problems.

This feature was not implemented in GSoC. I am going to change the status of this bug report to make more sense of current state of bug report.

I would really like to see printing in Pinta, but it looks to me that this is not going to happen in 1.6 milestone. So it should probably be best to change milestone to 1.7.

Cameron White (cameronwhite91) wrote :

Yeah, I think printing should be in 1.7, since 1.6 is long overdue already

Changed in pinta:
milestone: 1.6 → 1.7
Cameron White (cameronwhite91) wrote :

I've disabled printing for the 1.7 release since it isn't a blocking issue

Changed in pinta:
milestone: 1.7 → none

I agree printing to be disabled until it really works.
