Showstopper: Print-Outs from Desktop far too bad

Postby jakobssystems » Tue Jun 06, 2017 2:10 pm

During evaluation if Onlyoffice is capable as replacement for Microsoft Office we've found out that the rendering engine for print is unusable. Everybody can verify this when printing out in a PDF. Just open same Document on OnlyOffice and in MS Word oder Apple Pages and do a print. Print it as PDF and zoom in. You see the difference there and of course when printed out on laserprinters. This is a big showstopper for OnlyOffice. Interestingly the Online-Version - we are using OnlyOffice within NextCloud - works pretty good and shows results as expected. I assume you are using the browsers rendering engine then.

Here is a demo-picture:

Hello jakobssystems!
Thank you for your information!
We are working on creating a new rendering engine and hope we will fix it in further releases. Anyway to get a great quality PDF file please use "Save as" option, not virtual printer.

Yes this is a workaround, "save as PDF" makes a clear more crisp rendered PDF than printing. But this can only be a work-around. Looking forward for further releases.
