> c) Also Print Preview affected

Print itself doesn't do anything (no message in the Error Console), neither does Ctrl+P.
Print Preview works for me, though, and I can successfully print from there (2.40/Win7).

c: Indeed, today 'Print Preview' works fine for me - strange!
   When I tested this one, I already had did tests for several other issues,
   possibly during those tests 'Pint Preview' has been "picked off" temporarily
   without any relation to this problem her?
The next release is 2.42. We are skipping 2.41 so [WONTFIX 2.41]. If it works in 2.42 then there is nothing to fix.
