With 6.1, users who have an eQuestionnaire up in IE8 or IE9, cannot print the whole EQ using the IE print command. It only prints what is visible in the browser window pane.
6.0 didnt do this.
The only option they have is to zoom the page down so it fits in the window, but the EQ is so long that it then becomes too small to read.
Does anyone know of an IE Setting that might help them print it on multiple pages, like it worked before?
We have already turned in an SR for printing Activities in NPD, which does this same thing unless you open it in a popup, but we dont have the pop-up option for suppliers EQs.
The browser print feature was never an officially supported/tested feature. 6.1.0 UI changes now provide a fixed header location so that action buttons are always visible when the content area is scrollable.
You can provide a unique stylesheet for the print function that overrides the existing screen styles when printing. Add the following to your brand.css file. The code below will hide the header and sidebar. It will also set the height of the main content areas to 100%, without this code the browser will print the content area at a fixed height (which is why its cutting off). This should fix all apps. Add any other styles here that you would like to apply only to your print outs.
No. After adding what you suggestion to the Brand.css file on the Supplier Portal test server only, not the main GSM server, its now prints more than what appears on the screen, but only 1 page. Ill shoot you an email with screen shots if you done mind...
Thought I would chime in. We have experienced suppliers contacting us within the last two days to report this as a loss of functionality from our upgrade from 6.0xx to 6.1xx. The External Suppliers are not very happy about this because they had been printing their submitted eQs to verify against the final spec that we submit to Supplier Portal for approval. I am hoping that your forum thread will provide the mechanism to help all of us get this fixed to repair derailed Supplier Collaboration efforts.
