Print to PDF

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

Is there any news about what stage of development is print to PDF files in Maxthon?

I mean, print in Blink core, where text can be selected.

note

I know that I can print to PDF for example using "PDF Creator" and the "Trident" core.

I don't think there is a lot going on in that area... but anything can happen.

This is a pity, and I think that not only I often store (save, print) websites to PDF, and therefore I am forced to switch to the core Trident or I need to use Firefox. This is basically one matters that annoy me on Maxthon much.

I just printed this page to PDF using the Foxit Reader PDF printer as my printer option. Worked just fine and from Webkit mode.

I also prints in PDFCreator, but at the core Blink text can not be selected, quality is low and the resulting file is much bigger than from Firefox or Chrome. :(

PDF printing in chromium is very easy but Maxthon does not support this. continuously switching to retro mode just to print a PDF is a bit silly really as well as time consuming.

Printing a PDF from webkit looks like it just merely changes the page to an image format (pixilated when zooming in) then outputs as a PDF file.

Maxthon really needs to support PDF output natively as with chromium.
