Welcome to GnuCash Steve! I just caught up on a thread about W10 printing issues. It seems the problem has indeed carried over to the 3.0 series. (and still exists in 2.6.x)
As long as you can then print that PDF, it’s an extra step, but you aren’t locked out of printing. Unfortunately, looking at your questions in 2-4, you might need an extra few steps anyway. There’s no need to export first, you can simply select-all and copy/paste your report into Excel, and use that to format your printout with desired page-breaks, paper size, and footer. Directly to your #3 - Check in File > Page Setup. You can set paper size and orientation there. You can’t directly control page breaks, but you can change page orientation and you can adjust font-size by editing the stylesheets or creating your own stylesheet. However, you’ll likely have to alter this by trial and error and then do so each time the report changes. (not very time efficient) Likewise, you can customize the Footer stylesheet to your needs which will allow you to print a footer on the page. There are some variables to use in some places but I’m not sure if page-number and page-count are included in these or if they’d even work in the footer. You might have to create a custom report. (which would be even more trouble) The easiest way to get all requirements is to copy/paste and format in Excel as noted. Please note, a proper reporting system is on the wish list, but it’s going to be well down the road until after core parts of the app are rebuilt, particularly, the transition to a true database app. Till then, we can always use our favorite spreadsheet for custom and ‘pretty printing’.
