I might have figured out what might be the problem:

- QCAD Pro switches automatically to the print preview when choosing File - Print.
- QCAD CE doesn't. You have to choose File - Print Preview and then File - Print. This is a bug and has been fixed for the next release.

Can you confirm that this is what caused the problem?

A quick fix is available at:
https://raw.github.com/qcad/qcad/master ... t/Print.js

This file replaces file scripts/File/Print/Print.js of your QCAD installation.

yes, that is correct. furthermore, when after a fresh install i activate print preview and remove pro-tools afterwards, it is no longer possible to deactivate print preview without closing and restarting qcad. After a restart, i can turn print preview on and off without problems, but the printing problem persists.

Yes, for this reason QCAD shows a warning that it needs to be restarted after removing trial plugins.

Alright. So the current situation is that the print preview works as expected but printing does not, is this correct?

Did you try to create a PDF from the print preview?

Yes (the 'print icon' in the tool bar is actually a 'print preview icon'). The menu File - Print Preview also works.
Once in print preview, the print menu also works.
