When I upgraded to lyx 2.2.0 (which was when debian testing went to
it) I lost the print menu. I thought at first it was because my home
computer uses an old printer, but the same thing is true on my office
machine. I could not find out anything about printing on the
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX22 site, or anywhere else I looked.
Never mind, I guess. I see it now in the release notes. But it does
seem odd to dump it entirely. The argument that most people would want
to preview the output first is not the way I work with it. I often have
a viewing window open, but in the past have opted to print directly from
lyx. In fact, on an earlier computer lyx was one of the few programs
that would work with my legacy printer.
Was there a decision to relegate printing (maybe just in linux) to
programs handling the output files? I can print fine viewing the
output (using evince) and then printing from there, but lyx used to
support printing directly. Or, perhaps, something happened with the
configuration, but I did not see anything about printing in the menus,
or any mention of it.
Oh well. I will adapt, but I'd rather have the option.
