Even/Odd Printing

Reported by: guest Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4.0

Keywords: Cc:


I would like to suggest adding the ability to print odd pages only and even pages only to the printing subsystem to facilitate printing in duplex mode with a simplex printer.

Implemented for 'As Image' printing. Changeset [183].

I have downloaded and installed Lucide RC1. Looking at the new even-odd printing, which works on my printer for a six-page document, I have the following suggestions.

  1. The values on the print dialog should be sticky. Suppose I set number of copies, print as image, print at higher quality, even pages only, and then print. I would like those choices to be displayed in the dialog the next time I print.

This change will make 2-sided printing much easier for me.

  1. Even if I choose 2 copies, only one copy prints.

Note: here is a problem implement even/odd printing for postscript output as poppler (PDF rendering library) support only sequenced output page-by-page without skips.

We will try solve this later.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Even/odd printing works for me with Print as image. Current popplers seem to have no trouble with this.

Closing as resolved. Feel free to re-open if there are difficulties printing this way. Other printing enhancements are planned; perhaps even/odd printing without Print as image may be implemented later, if necessary. Right now, this works well, here.
