Printing code in eclipse font size too large [message #325980] Tue, 04 March 2008 23:54 Go to next message

Hi,

I was printing some code from eclipse yesterday and the default print font
size is huge. It seems like 20pt or something.

How do I change the default print font size?

I am using:
Eclipse SDK

Version: 3.3.1
Build id: M20070921-1145

On Ubuntu Gusty 7.1 amd64

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,

-Joel

It's supposed to use the font you're having in the editor.

Um... same problem.

Suse 11.4

Eclipse IDE for JavaScript Web Developers.

Version: Helios Service Release 2
Build id: 20110301-1815

Printing wastes very much paper and I can't find a way to make the font smaller and/or control margins. (printing via CUPS)

Thanks for any instruction,
Neil

Although there isn't an option to change the default for printing alone, you can scale the font when you print. My editor font is 11 point and when I print I set the scaling to 50% and it looks about 6 point font. This option is available under Details in the print dialog.
