As discussed in Workflow Analysis, there are currently a number of modal dialogs which might interrupt the user. These information are given with regard to e.g. wrong paper sizes, transparency or even color gradients. There is a need for a solution which explains the user potential issues without disturbing the usual workflow.



Proposed Designs


Proposed Information

Inform About Automatic Scaling of Printed Output

This information proposal is based on the Idea Collection, "Inform the user about the actual paper sheet size and maybe about document page or selection size".

Code Changes


Outstanding Issues

  • If people print via shortcut, then the print dialog is omitted. What to do?
  • If native dialogs are used, then we miss the flexibility to add this kind of warning.

  • Drucker gibt Liste mit (manchmal: vorhandenen) Papierformaten zurück --> nützt oft nur wenig
  • Zwischen-Fazit: Auch wenn das richtige Papierformat im Drucker vorhanden ist, dann wissen wir das nicht wirklich.
  • Beispiel 1: Falls Drucker das korrekte Format nicht zurück gibt, dann wird das nächste "ähnliche" Format verwendet (geringste Abweichung in Dimension)
  • Vorzugsvariante: Information Bar, denn dieser lässt sich für alle Seiten verwenden --> im schlimmsten Fall eigene primitive Variante, aber allerfrühestens 3.4
