Description Michael 2019-02-18 09:22:11 UTC
I'm referring to resolved bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=348172 and are using okular 18.12.1 with the patch added (not sure why I can only select version up to 1.6.2...).

Now that it is possible to chose a print scaling (thanks a lot for that :-)) it would be nice if
a) okular would remember the last setting  (rasterization + which mode chosen) or
b) one could activate rasterization and store a pre-selected scale mode via the settings (or the config file, GUI wouldn't be necessary).

For me, normal printing almost cuts of the borders, so I need to chose "Fit to printable area" most of the time. Doing all the clicks again for every print is a little bit bothersome :)

Just got okular 20.04.2 with opensuse leap 15.2 which has the rasterization patch included, so we don't have to compile okular with the patch again.

But indeed, it is tedious to activate it again and again for every print, so there should be a setting for rasterization and the fittings setting, or okular should default to the last setting. It doesn't even keep the setting for a session, i.e. on every call of the print dialog rasterization is off again.

Would be great to have config option here...
