Printing on Linux
« on: June 11, 2011, 09:00:34 AM »
Clicking on the print icon under Linux does nothing. However, if you right click within the display window that you want to print, then select print, it is possible to summon a print dialogue and successfully print an item.

However, after printing, the print dialogue will not disappear and it sometimes crashes the program.

Hi,
  Printing was a problem in Linux even in BeerSmith1.  BeerSmith uses an internet explorer plugin to display and print most reports and for some reason Linux/Wine do not like this.

  The workaround I built into BeerSmith 2 is to use the "Save Report" button which is just to the right of the report name on the preview pane title bar.

  This will save your report as an HTML report so you can print it from any native web browser.
