Feature Request for printing offset

Post by Puffolino » Tue May 14, 2019 12:42 pm

Not the highest priority for that - but should be simple to implement:

Sometimes the document format doesn't match with the printer output format, so "Custom Zoom" is a good method to get the best result - ost of the time. But today I needed to print some PDF's where the content is non-centered, so it would be cool to use a manual x- and y-offset which shifts the printed area.

Alternatively I could crop the document pages, but moving the redish rectangle in the print preview would do the trick much easier.

Hello Puffolino,

I believe that this already exists in the Standard printer, by way of the "postion" options.

Note that this can sometimes be overridden by the printing application, but in general I do believe it would allow you to accomplish what you are looking for.

You're right, would be fine to have this option within the XChange-Editor as well (I can use the crop box which can't set the width and height, so that needs also more clicks than wanted :) )

Interestingly the print dialog of the editor shows a group "Page Placement and Scaling" while the old viewer just says "Page scaling" for more or less the same options here...
...again, not the most important feature - just a nice to have :roll:

Hi Puffolino,

If you are looking for this functionality in the Editor, you can select the desired content, and then use the following options on the "Arrange" tab:

Alternatively, the Crop, Resize pages, etc, tools do serve this purpose already, so it is highly unlikely that we will offer another tool to do the same.
