The developer toolbox has a screenshot function...
Depending on the page, it takes a while till it has a png exported...
Where are the .png's going? Can't find anything (using the unstable version, admittedly).

Where are the .png's going?
The PNGs go to the Downloads directory that you specify in Preferences >> Preferences >> General >> Downloads ... but can be directly accessed by the Ctrl+J combination ... or from a "down arrow" button that you can add to the top tool bar.

A lot people print online invoices and receipts after they purchase. Offices print database records and so on.

I have found that a lot of web pages with little on them, such as a simple invoice, can print to 3 pages. But if you think that it is a PM error, try using another browser and see how that goes.

Well that's the thing.. Most of those are not gonna be dynamically generated garbage but physically (digitally speaking) document structures we CAN print. Unless that changes of course. We will just have to take it as it comes. However, random website printing is still gonna be more difficult and really shouldn't be needed that much to be a critical issue at this time. Key phrase: at this time.

I wondered where they were going, tried a few times and still no clue, then opened XYplorer to the download folder and there were 4 images. It's not exactly verbose :roll:
