printing?

Asked by HansBKK on 2011-11-29

I take it there isn't any printing facility?

I'm able to kludge something using SnagIt, but not ideal.

And I guess the concept of a "page break" isn't supported in txt2tags?

No, there isn't at the moment.

Well, the problem is that page breaks are not really well supported by
html and css. Or do you know a way to obtain them? There's more info

No, and I haven't been thinking of HTML, but I guess quick conversion then print from a browser would do it. Avoiding webkit by the look of your links.

I'm sure PDF has a pagebreak symbol/function - I've got Textallion on my list of stuff to check out, maybe that does it via LaTeX. . .

I guess it does it that way. I want to stick with webkit however to
avoid pulling in another dependency (latex).
