Why do you say that? I'm using a different dot-pet, but printing works just fine for me from Opera. (EDIT: I should specify- Opera 11.00, Lucid 511.)

Here is a typical sample:



So what is that about then!

I think I may have discovered what I'm doing differently (without even thinking about it) that gives me better results.
I save webpages as MHTML files, then later open those and then print everything I need at once. It seems to make a difference.

I've attached a wonky PDF that's printed/exported directly from a view of the forum, and then I've attached a PDF printed from a saved *.mht of the same thread page. (They're both in an archive, since the forum doesn't allow PDF attachments.) The "bad" direct-print copy isn't as dramatic as your example, but there is a noticeable difference.

I'm going to go try it out on a few other sites and see if saving to *.mht files before printing might not be a decent work-around.

EDIT: I tried it out on Techrights.org, and it seemed to help preserve the site layout there, too. Images were a little low-res, but not distorted or marred like your screenshot.
Opera's printing still won't win any awards for image fidelity, but it's better than nothing.

Might want to give this method a try. Nothing to lose, after all.

Yes, my published post was deleted, and attempts to repeat it were blanked. I don't know what's going on. Perhaps a moderator is playing games. Wish someone would explain.

Hello,

I just posted the following here, which appeared but seems to have been removed. I recovered it from "view my posts." Mystified, what happened?

I went to the Opera support site and picked one of the many strings on printing problems:



Take a moment to read this and you won't be looking in Puppy for the problem.


This is what I see, when clicking "quote" on your first post and remove the link in your text. Some links cause trouble in the forum it seems..

Thanks, Bert, but this does not explain it for me. The message I originally posted has appeared, disappeared, my followups appeared with the body removed, my original message again appeared without the followups and later disappeared, the followups returning. Nothing like this has ever happened in my previous 600 some posts. I've wasted too much time on it; I don't like it. Let's see if this post survives.

Yes, this post survived Wink

I again clicked "quote" on your last post and it was there in 'preview'. Then I added the opera link from your first post and it became invisible in 'preview'.

So, maybe there's more to it, but the link certainly plays a role.
Hope this gets solved!

http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=783492

Think I found the cause:

In the original empty post, the link had a space between' id=783492' and '[/url]'. Removing that space, makes the link and the post visible.
