Bug report #11479

Direct printing only prints small area of the print layout

direct printing in the print composer does not print the complete layout. Only a small part (maybe 50%) is printed. It happens on two different Windows 7 PCs (OSGeo4W 32bit) but works under Windows 7 (OSGeo4W 64bit) and GNU/Linux. Maybe because of a different Qt version used in 32bit (Qt 4.7.1) and 64bit (Qt 4.8.5) OSGeo4W package?

isn't this a regression?

#2 Updated by Otto Dassau over 9 years ago

Building the 32bit package also with Qt 4.8.5 (instead of 4.7.1 as now) would be no regression.

I can't reproduce this. What printer/paper size settings are you using? Are you printing an atlas or a single page? Using data defined page size/orientation or not?

#4 Updated by Otto Dassau over 9 years ago

I work on Windows 7, use the current 32bit OSGeo4W package. I have no special printer settings. It is a4 page, a simple direct print as single page. There are now data definitions, orientation is default. If I export the layout as PDF and print it using acrobat reader, it works fine, but direct printing does not work properly.

And as I said, I have a current 64bit OSGeo4W package installed in parallel on that PC, and there it works as expected.

Thanks for your help!

Does it work in 2.4? Are you printing as raster?
