the PRINTER options are opened.
( this may be not a bug, may be a feature, but it is wrong ).
The PREVIEW options should be opened instead, just like when we use the MENU OPTION "Print..."
Actually, File-menu|Print does the same thing and always has (it opens the print dialog, not print-preview).
The hamburger-menu (the upper right three-lines-menu) is different for some reason -- it opens Print Preview for some reason. I agree that it is confusing that these 3 different "print" options don't all do the same thing, though I don't know if there's a great way to unify them.
Having said that, I suspect the Print dialog is really the right dialog to open in this case, because Print-Preview is meant to let you adjust formatting for HTML documents, and PDFs are more meant to be straight-to-printer.
Yes, that's correct assuming that all PDF are well formatted and contain all information about the orientation ( we agree that in this case, direct printing only is the way to go ). BUT, that is not always the case, for example, many php pdf creators like laravel/dom-pdf, does not include orientation information in output pdf. or may be has to be activate one flag like in imagemagick pdf generator. anyway, my point is: there are many pdf creators that not include orientation in their output, or requires the developer (generator of the pdf) that know flags to generate a perfect pdf, and, like in html, there are many resulting flavors out there. solution: give to the end user the power to modify or apply proper format to his pdf output, if this is not done, becomes a pain, and the user has to go to chrome ( where the preview appears by default ) in order to print his inproper created pdf document.
Anyway, as-filed, this is a PDF Viewer bug (since that's where this print icon exists), though I don't think this behavior is likely to change.
Thanks for take a look.
