about qpdfview Feb 2015

Debian Testing
HP Officejet Pro 8600 with HP native printer correctly installed.
CUPS 1.7.5
HPCUPS 3.14.6
qpdfview 0.4.12

It uses Qt-native printing dialog, however:

  • completely ignores Duplex setting. If I set it to long-side duplex once, it will duplex all the time. I have made sure its set to off, also in CUPS web interface it is set to OFF, nevertheless it prints in LongEdge Duplex after I once used it.

  • lists supported papers, but only few are selectable. For example it lists A4, A4 small margins and A4 borderless; but only A4 small margins is selectable. If I select this, then text gets CUT as if it does not scale the input image, but instead cuts the margins off. A workaround (!) is to select the only available A4 small margins, then set borders to zero manually. For every print.

  • There is no option to preview the result. Very primitive.

And no djvu support...
