(GanttProject Support) #1

Good Afternoon,

Having trouble printing. When I print, the pages come out blank. Even printing from print preview, nothing is printing on paper. Very frustrating.

Yes, I’m printing PDF. I watched the tutorial, helpful, but still can’t print.

The best and recommended way to print is to export (Project->Export) to PNG or PDF and print the result using appropriate printing tools.

Hi Dmitry,
Thanks for your reply.
I have read many posts in this forum about printing, and I have seen your usual reply about using PDF reports and PNG images, and I use these extensively for “small projects”, when printing on one by one page or 2 by 2 pages is fine.
But I’m using GanttProject for larger and larger projects, where printing on one page is not a viable option. I have not found a way to make PDF export print the Gantt and the Resource Charts on multiple page.
PNG export allows to print on several pages (in two steps with the Paint program for example), but repeat of headers on pages is not possible because PNG is computing a global image for the whole project. This is acceptable, as I said, for small projects, but does not work for projects which require more than 2x2 pages.
So any solution allowing to print headers on pages would be a major improvement.
Best regards, and thanks again for this remarkable application.

PDF can be tiled using Adobe Reader if you choose big paper size in the PDF export settings. That is, export using A0 and then tile using Reader. This will effectively do the same as PNG though: global image tiled over multiple pages.
