setting things up for easy printing later?
Submitted by raisins on Saturday, 23 July, 2011 - 05:29
Dear all,

I would like my code to be formatted in a way where printing is easy. As is, jEdit indicates that my screen is displaying in Monospaced 12 plain font. The print options indicate that printing will be done in the same font except in 9 point font. However, when I print, the font is not 9 pt, it is still 12 pt. Am I missing something easy here?

I would like to set my font to 9 or 10 pt while editing and printing. However, when editing I would like to be able to zoom in (so 9 pt is bigger than it usually is). I have not found how to do this. When I set jEdit to 9 pt font, it simply shrinks the page and so nothing changes (I can fit no more text on a printable line). Any general advice would be appreciated. I am trying to format some code for publication, and I am not a computer scientist (perhaps obviously) and am looking for the most efficient way to do this. I'm pretty sure copying code into a Word .doc and formatting there would be a nightmare (and a duplication of work in some sense).

Thanks,Seth

Zoom and Print

1. Zoom
There are two macros: "Macros -> Interface -> In-/Decrease Font Size". If You'd bind them to shortcuts (i.e. C+ADD and C+SUBTRACT) You can "zoom" easily the text area.

2. Print Font
When I change "Global Options -> Printing -> Print Font" this change is reflected in the printing result. Printing definitely doesn't use the text area font.

3. Formatting Code for Publishing
The Code2Html Plugin lets You create a HTML or Latex file, that looks exactly as You current buffer in jEdit.

It works, and I'm starting to understand the logic of jEdit more. I now have another issue I'll start a new thread concerning (I'm afraid font width in points may not conform to stand typography).
