It's difficult to provide the ability to go back a page when
showing the user a print preview. It's assumed functionality in
every print preview interface.
Come on Adobe, we need better printing support for Flash/Flex
in general. The OS should be able to handle stuff like which pages
to print, and print orientation too. Very generic, basic
functionality. Why are we still doing this in Flex? The Silverlight
punks are gonna catch up at this rate. :P
Also: since technically when we print multiple pages by
queuing them up in separate print jobs (as the Flex printing
example in the docs), doesn't that mean if other people print stuff
while your Flex print jobs are running, it'll end up in between
That really sucks. Better print support is needed if Adobe
wants businesses to use Flex extensively. ^_^ And I don't even want
to think about the performance hit (if any) you take printing lots
of pages like that...
So we gonna get this in Flex 4 or what? Or just some kind of enhanced printing maybe? Would be kindof a big deal... who cares about tinkering with stupid "states", just get the Flash team to help get printing working (better).
