Not keeping Print Settings.

#1 Post by OldNortonBoy » 11 Apr 2022, 13:14

Hi All
I have a couple of printers connected and when I go to File > Titles and Sheet Setup > Print Settings > select my printer from Name: change Paper Size: A5 Select OK.
I have to do this every time I want to change Priinter Setup as DipTrace does not Save the configuration.
Thanks
Mike

We consider an option to save the latest printer and its options. Thank you for the suggestion.

It has been a year and a half since I reported this bug and it has still not been rectified.
It is such a tedious effort that every time I want to print something on a diiferent sized paper, that I have to try to remember, (Most times I don't), to go into Titles & Sheet Setup first.
Could you at least let me know if you will look at it and give some idea of when it will be fixed.
Thanks

Come on Guys this must be a simple issue to fix, yet I don't even get a response.

What is frustrating with the BUG is that after making the changes, when the program is exited it asks if you want to Save Changes.
Even though I say yes it does NOT save the configuration.

I simply love the simplicity of using DipTrace and use it quite a lot even though I am just a hobbyist these days.
I have just upgraded my licence to 'Extended' to give me a bit more 'wiggle room' when designing PCB's.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, fix this bug for me and probably others.

Thanks
Mike

Thank you for the report. Diptrace uses standard Windows features for printers. It returns the list of printers, default printer, its settings. To memorize last used printer and its settings within DipTrace, we need significant changes. We will consider what we can do.
