Summary0003263: QSL label printing changes needed (bucked of tweaks from the 204 build)
DescriptionI'm going to pile these items into a fresh new Mantis record so we don't have to wade through the other open items. Pardon me for putting this in there... should probably be THREE separate items. But let's try it like this for these few items.

First of all, the changes made in the 204 build are VERY close to what we want. I was able to print using font size = auto and it looks good (except for item #2 below).

We need to tend three items before we ship this:

Item #1 - the font size needs to be "pinned" (hard-coded) to "Auto". Any other selection causes the text to be truncated when printed. (See image titled "Build 204 QSL label print options")

Item #2 - trying to use the File > Print > QSL Card option puts you in an endless loop. (See image titled "Build 204 QSL card printing endless loop". It's probably best if we have a conversation about how this is supposed to work.
Steps To ReproduceItem 1 can be recreated by selecting 30 QSOs to print labels for... right-click File > Print > Labels.

Item 3 can be recreated by selecting 30 QSOs to print QSL Cards for... right-click File > Print > QSL Cards.
TagsNo tags attached.

Ignore the other image that I attached regarding the gridlines. It's fixed in the 204 build.

I pinned down the auto font and disabled the qsl print menu item in release builds into we get it fixed.

Didn't reproduce the endless loop, I will dive a bit more into the code though.

just kicked off a build.

Thanks, Doug. I've got the build. There's another place where that endless loop thing comes up... but as for now, we should go ahead and get a release build out.

I'm calling this item validated. Good job.

I spoke too soon.

We need to get rid of the "Use New Print Functionality" option. Pin it to enabled and hide it. (Or rip out whatever code is behind it. It won't be useful for folks to go back to the old print functionality).

While we're at it... look in the Print Label dialog. There's a dropdown that says "Print On". If that option is changed from "Label" to anything else, we get the endless loop. We should probably disable those as well.

Removed new or old printing options, always new.
Disabled Print on drop down in release mode

"Fixed" QSL printing. Can't tell by the code what in the world printing 2 and 4 to a page was supposed to do, so let me know how it looks.

Committing now, and will kick off a build in a few.

With the changes in 206, this is good.

(This leaves open the issues related to printing QSL Cards. We'll pick that up later.)
