Quickly print view or selection
Quick printing (no formatting) of the current view, or current selection (if any). There are settings to add blank lines at the top or bottom, indent from the left, start with the filename and add page or line numbers. NB I do not know if this works on anything other than Windows - feedback is required! [Note: On Windows the Console will flash open on occasion.] [.txt files are added to the users' TEMP folder for each view printed.] SETUP: SHARE YOUR PRINTER (important); Windows: Make a note of your computer-name and the printer-name. Add these values to the package settings (although the computer-name can be omitted). In the settings you can also specify a port other than LPT1. linux/osx: It should print to the default printer, although you can specify a "queue" setting - being the queue or printer name. You will possibly have to configure your printers' settings to accept TEXT input, particularly if printing to a .pdf generator. On Windows you can use the setting "use_notepad": true; in which case it will use your default printer without requiring any configuration! The print option appears in the context-menu, or you can add a key-binding for the command "quick_print". [I prefer to use the context-menu because, if it appears in the file menu, then users would probably anticipate a dialog or print-preview to appear.] In the settings you can optionally specify: how many blank lines to add at the top of each page; whether to start printing with the full filename; number of spaces to be added on the left; the number of lines to print per page; How many blank lines (at the bottom) before printing the page number. (If omitted, or false, the page numbers will not be added.); whether to print line numbers. Using my_cmd and my_cmd_end you can configure your own command-line to be applied to the temporary .txt file that is generated. Perhaps to use Wordpad, or add command-line arguments for an application or pdf creator. There is also a "quick_print_reset" command (for Windows only) which reassigns LPT1 (or your chosen port) to your named printer. I use a key-binding to run this command.
