Quick page format selection for printing

Post by J-J » Tue Dec 06, 2016 6:37 pm

Hi guys,
How about a drop down icon in the print menu to make a quick selection between most common formats: A4,A3,A2,A1 & A0 ? This would alleviate going all the steps of the "Edit" menu...

Hi J-J,

nice idea! :D

I use the "Drawing Preferences" Button in the Print Option Bar and I think it is pretty fast to make changes to the Page settings ...

just three clicks and I have a new format.

I would rather think about to reduce the selection of offered Page sizes like the "Use reduced selection of fonts" option below Application Preferences / Draw / Text

That would also eliminate the question of: What is the most common format?
What do you think?

Hi Husky,
I use them all, A0 trough A4.
Large formats are nice with a pdf export, because you can zoom on details. That was just a suggestion from my typical usage.
