OS/2 build 2002110812 To reproduce: 1. Go to the provided URL 2. Select lyrics "Where The Wild Roses Grow" (right under album picture) 3. Print out the selection Actual result: Printing takes one page. The printed text starts at bottom of the page. Although text does not fit the page, it's not continued on another page. Printing result in .ps is coming.
I did a search for my bug report, and found this one closest to what I want to report. Please let me know / file a new bug, if this is not where this should go: I have a 3 page printout of a web page. I selected some text, and printed it. Only half (first) of the text got printed. I tried it again, same thing. Then, I noticed that the selection that I had made was starting at the end of the 1st sheet, continuing to the begninning ot the 2nd sheet of the complete printout. It seems that if I print a selection that should have been printed in multiple pages on a complete printout, only the part which is on the initail page gets printed. Fails on Linux and XP: On Linux: 2003021605 OnXP: 20030224nn (don't remember the last 2 digits) Thanks Ajay Gautam
This is a very annoying bug for me, because I print long news articles all the time by using the "print selection" option under the print submenu. Usually in a long article, it only prints the first page. Occasionally it will print the whole thing but will chop off part of the text at the bottom of the page.
I tried this on linux (build ID 20041230). In the printout, the selected lyrics started at the top of the page and fit entirely on the first page of the printout. There are lyrics for other songs following "Where The Wild Roses Grow", so I selected the lot and printed that. This resulted in a three-page printout. All of the text was printed, but the last line of text on pages 1 & 2 was cropped short, with the missing pixels appearing as the first line of text on the next page. This isn't perfect--mozilla shouldn't be splitting a single line of text over two pages--but it's different from the behavior described in the original report. Max, could you try this with a current copy of mozilla and see how it behaves for you?
Printing selection prints selection as it appeared on the page originally, not independant of the original document. As a result, text appears skewif on the paper.
Yeah, now it prints much better. Splitting a text line between pages is a different issue (bug 240625). Marking this bug as WFM.
