After much persistance, the Advanced Print View is proving to be practically impossible to use with the current HTML editor method. It also has a number of bugs which I have noticed surrounding working with Tables and Font Size.
The current method takes too long to achieve anything, if at all, in regards to getting it to look how you want it to.
Would it be possible to provide PLM with an MS Word file which already has all the formatting done. In the Word doc we could then place the PLM Artifacts so that we can get awesomely good looking and formatted prints with minimal effort?
I would expect that the doc would have to be rendered to a PDF on the server side before providing it to the user for viewing/download.
A method such as this would provide the user with the means to correctly define formatting options such as;
- Tables (including borders - line types, colours and weights)
- Proper Headers and Footers
- User a Table of Contents
- Page Numbers
- Text Styles
