AW: any secrets printing only a section from a card?

2017-04-11 Thread Tiemo Hollmann TB via use-livecode
Yes, that's my experience too. I also tested the printScale without success.
I now, created a separate print stack, copied all objects to that card and
print the whole card.
Thanks
Tiemo

This might be an older issue. I have been struggling with that myself, in
context of producing PDFs, in version 7. Only printing the full card works
reliably. Any other option produces a different output but not the desired
one, at least not reliably.

Hello,

LC 8.1.4, Win 10. (Same with LC 6-9) When printing a whole card with 
just
"print card" everything of the card is being printed fine, only 
stretched to

the papersize.

But when trying to print only a part of the  card by "print card from
myLeftTop to myRightBottom into page Rect" I never get the wanted 
rectangle
being printed into the pageRect. It is always clipped somewhere and 
only a
small part of the wanted rectangle is being printed. I have also tried 
to
set the printpapersize and printmargins and fiddled around with 
different

rectangle sizes, but didn't got the wanted section.

Are there any secret conversion factors, when printing "from to"?

Thanks for any hint

Tiemo

A couple of things you can try.

You can print into a specified "pageRect". See the dictionary.

You can also set the "printScale" to a value other than 1. See the
dictionary.

any secrets printing only a section from a card?

2017-04-10 Thread Tiemo Hollmann TB via use-livecode
Hello,

LC 8.1.4, Win 10. (Same with LC 6-9) When printing a whole card with just
"print card" everything of the card is being printed fine, only stretched to
the papersize.

But when trying to print only a part of the  card by "print card from
myLeftTop to myRightBottom into page Rect" I never get the wanted rectangle
being printed into the pageRect. It is always clipped somewhere and only a
small part of the wanted rectangle is being printed. I have also tried to
set the printpapersize and printmargins and fiddled around with different
rectangle sizes, but didn't got the wanted section.

Are there any secret conversion factors, when printing "from to"?

Thanks for any hint

Tiemo
