Chromium print preview

Hello,

I like the print preview from Chrome on Windows.

See here: http://techdows.com/wp-content/uploads/ … chrome.png

I tried to enable it on Chromium Linux in the about:flags, however, it states that this feature is Windows only.

Are there really no ways / hacks to get this working?

Re: Chromium print preview

its there out of the box in the current stable chrome for linux (not chromium), not sure why chromium still uses the old one.

Re: Chromium print preview

That would be a motivation to try Chrome instead of Chromium. Is it possible to seamlessly change from the latter to the prior keeping my current profile?

chrome/chromium's integrated sync feature can sync all your bookmarks/settings/extensions/apps/passwords

Re: Chromium print preview

According to this [1] site even Chromium supports the print-preview.

--enable-print-preview[13] ⊗	Enables print preview (Force enable on Chromium, which normally does not have the PDF viewer required for print preview.) ↪

Re: Chromium print preview

For now I filed a report in the tracker [1]. It is indeed irritating to see this option in the settings if it is not working at all.
