Re: Program closes when selecting PRINT

Finally got my new laptop delivered last week, installed the current Debian version and was able to run the Linux OWM build... and promptly ran into this bug.

Is there a known workaround, or do I just need to print from Windows until 1.0.2 comes out? Based on the earlier speculation in this thread, I tried switching the default printer, but it didn't seem to change anything - still segfaults as soon as I hit "print".

We were able to reproduce it, and it's one of the issues we are still working on for the next release. It's got me a bit confused.

If you don't want to print from Windows another option is to export the map to PDF and then print the PDF.

Ah, great, thanks! I was actually trying to print to PDF, then send that to the printer (so I have both paper and digital copies), but it never occurred to me that I might be able to export to PDF instead of going through a PDF print driver.

Update. I was not able to fix this issue (personally working on the Linux port).

We made the call not to hold the release over this, but we will make it our first priority for the release after (which will aim only to make small changes/fixes).

Thank you!
