Printing options

Hi,

I just loaded K-Meleon a couple of days ago along with Opera, Firefox and Chrome as my IE7 is becoming unstable and even slower than it was.

I believe K-Meleon is my favorite. I love the super fast speed the most but the rest is AOK as well

I have a few questions/suggestions as maybe I am missing something.

1. Is there any way to customize the right click of the mouse to pull up print preview? I found the right click up in toolbar but how about anywhere on the screen?

2. Is there anyway to easily change the font size not just on the screen but for what is sent to the printer as well? Maybe a right mouse click custumization or like IE7 has where you can put 5 different sizes right on the toolbar and change with one click?

3. I agree with other comments in the forum that a sidebar which stays open with favorites would be great.

4. Addition of separate search box in toolbar would be preferred but current situation is workable.

Thanks in advance for any advise/suggestions or changes that you would have. I love your product.

Do you like said put the "Print Preview" option in right click context menu?
Remember that you can use the accelerator Ctrl+Alt+P.

You can define the Scaling in "Page Setup".
You can use Zoom buttons in toolbar, right click in Zoom button for more zoom options. Ctrl+Mouse Scroll to zoom in and out the web page.
You can setting Preferences -> Page Display -> Fonts.
Or you can create a macro to change Font from right context menu.
But i don't know if this changes in settings or the macro take effect over printer
configuration.

to easily change the font size on the screen (Thanks to someone else here at the forums)



set font size (Alt+y)
==========================================

Create a macro in notepad :

setfontsize{
$fontsize=getpref(INT,"font.minimum-size.x-western");
$fontsize=prompt("Enter the minimum size of font","minimum font size",$fontsize);
setpref(INT,"font.minimum-size.x-western",$fontsize);
}

Save it as
setfontsize.kmm
inside the folder macros in the K-Meleon root folder.


Start the browser.
Go to Edit > Configuration > Accelerators
accel.cfg will spring up.
At the bottom add the line :

ALT Y = macros(setfontsize)

Go to File/Save in notepad and save the file.

Restart the browser.
The shortcut ALT + Y should now open a prompt where
you can enter the minimum size for x-western fonts.
