Page dimensions and saving in pdf

Post by emeck » Sun May 28, 2017 8:11 pm

Hello, two wishes for the list.

First, could it be possible to specify page dimensions in units like cm, mm, inches, or even selecting some standard page formats like A4, A3 and such? Also with horizontal or vertical orientation?

Second, saving to PDF each page or a range of pages would also be very useful. I know there is saving to bmp but...

From time to time I need to make flyers and sent them as PDFs for printing. This last time I wanted to do it with my Amigas, so Designer came to the rescue. With those two options Designer can be a very useful kinda DTP program also 8-)

HW rocks!

I agree that PDF export would be very nice but it's lots of work so don't expect miracles here.

In the meantime you just install one of the hundreds free php-scripts on some webspace wo can render pdfs for you with any source (jpg, png, text) as Workaround.

Yes, that would do it. But no need to go online for that, ImageMagick does the trick. It is working fine for me.
