Print or PDF images often are messed up

Post by scott092707 » Tue Nov 26, 2019 8:25 pm

A fair amount of the time, something is messed up when I wish to print a web page, whether to my printer, or (much more likely) create a PDF file of the page.
Often, a long web page will show up as only 1 page in the preview. I then have to screen-shot (ScreenGrab package) multiple times, to get the whole page.

Other times, everything is there, but doesn't look much like the original.

Some pages have info that is wrongly sized, and/or is superimposed on other info.

I will attach an original .html file, 2 ScreenGrab screenshots of what it looked like onscreen, and the garbled .pdf file produced by Print/SaveAsPdf.

Code: Select all

scott@ASUS-PRIME-B350M-A-CSM:~$ uname -a
Linux ASUS-PRIME-B350M-A-CSM 4.19.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.16-1 (2019-01-17) x86_64 GNU/Linux

[Hmmm... I don't find an attach or upload option... Well, I can ScreenGrab my .pdf file being displayed, I guess. I would think you'd want the .html as well, but I don't suppose you want me to CODE: 4406 lines of HTML code...]

...it doesn't look like including images works, and also looks like it limits this to two "images". I'll try to add more in another Comment...

If anyone knows how I can include actual images and files here, let me know.

Otherwise, just telling you that "SlimJet makes things look really screwey" is not going to be very helpful, and won't get this bug fixed.
