Description hagar_de_lest 2008-04-29 17:10:49 UTC
The print preview doesn't render the font the same way than in edit mode (but it
keeps the same cell size, which is fine). Therefore, it can lead to blank spaces
at print because the text is more compact in the print preview than in the edit
mode while the cell size is the same.

See attachment, left is the edit mode, right is the print preview. Line feeds
are not at the same place. A blank space is visible (red frame).

It means that the edit mode is not consistent with the print preview, user has
to check systematically the layout and can't rely on the edit mode.

It seems that checking the Use printer metrics for text formatting option i nthe
general settings fixes the problem:

"Use printer metrics for text formatting
Specifies that printer metrics are applied for printing and also for formatting
the display on the screen. If this box is not checked, a printer independent
layout will be used for screen display and printing."

But a printer independent layout should be fine every time, shouldn't it? Why
the font display should be different between edit mode and print preview?
