21 January 2008

Feature: New printing dialog with advanced printing options

There were many users who complained about the poor printing in Mindomo. We have listened their complaints and created a new dialog which will let you print your maps in all kinds of formats. However we were limited by the printing functionality in the Flash Player, but we hope that we managed to find a good compromise. Due to the fact that there is no way that we change the printer paperformat and orientation from the program, it remains for the user to do the same settings twice. Once for the preview and once for the printer. We show a couple of warning messages to remember the user this repetitive task and we hope that this will make the users to remember to change the printer's settings.
