  • When printing, there should be a bunch of available options (WikiPublisher.org is a great example)
  • Most common options are shown by default, and the others in an advanced tab
  • Since users tend to each have preferred default settings, system should remember last recent print. Ex. with cookies
  • Default options are Tiki prefs. overridable by perspective

List of options

Feature option

  • Wiki page may have different options than printing a tracker item

See mPDF manual for a large number of examples

  • PDF outlines
    • Table of content -> Ideas to improve at: maketoc
  • Header / Footer (Page numbers, title, date / time of print)
  • Watermark
  • Page sizes (A4, letter, etc) and options
  • Print as user X or group Y, which can use to personalize or redact text. Can we use PluginGroup or should be go for creating a PluginRedact?
  • etc.

Other ideas

  • It would be nice to use a wiki page to make the template to layout the header / footer / etc.
  • Maybe there should be a way to override some mPDF params via a wiki plugin? ex: force a page break. This page in landscape mode. force another page break. This page in portrait mode. Ex.: {print break=page} {print layout=portrait}
