Description Brian Jason Drake 2005-04-10 06:07:18 UTC
This problem has been discussed at length at bug 1577 (I 
don't know how to make it link there). Bug 1577 is filed 
under MediaWiki; this one is filed under MediaZilla; the 
problems seem to be identical.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-06-22 22:56:13 UTC
Is this referring to the 'Format For Printing' link in bugzilla?
(eg http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/long_list.cgi?buglist=1858)

Yes. Previously when I used "print preview" in BugZilla it was formatted for printing, making 
the "Format For Printing" link redundant. However, I tried it just now and it was formatted 
like it is on screen, except that the background and stuff on the edges of the screen are 
missing.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-06-23 03:14:26 UTC
Print Preview looks pretty attractive (no sidebar, etc) right now 
in Safari 2.0 on this bug page.

'Format For Printing' removes parts of the form (the comment input 
box, resolution options, etc) and changes the form controls to 
plain text.

Stripping the MonoBook formatting is done in the print stylesheet 
when printing/previewing for either, while both display on screen 
with the MonoBook formatting. Does that seem consistent with what 
you're seeing?

If I understand correctly, the request is for the 'Format For 
Printing' view to engage the print stylesheet onscreen as well? 
(ie, tweaking the MonoBook template for Bugzilla so on that 
particular page it formats differently)

Shouldn't the print preview be "format(ted) for printing", since it 
is being printed? Why should the print preview be any different to 
the page linked to by "Format For Printing"?

Looks fine to me?
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2010-08-10 21:44:44 UTC
In Firefox 4.0b2/Linux, https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=1577 still displays with the sidebar, etc intact. The full print styling isn't engaged until actually going to print or print preview.

It's a bit debatable whether this is a problem per se ('format for printing' does some other tweaks to the layout within the page, such as not using form elements) but it is still kinda confusing, since the resulting view doesn't match what you get when you actually print.

How about BZ4 now? ;)

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=1858 is no better. Still has cruft on page 3. See attached PDF.

Bugmeister is the new Bugzilla maintainer and default assignee.
Comment 11 Chad H. 2011-09-09 20:26:16 UTC
Does this even matter? Who seriously prints out our BZ reports?

I would go for a wont fix:

- the print preview does not look that bad
- not worth investing time in something nobody use
Comment 13 Thehelpfulone 2012-06-22 19:18:59 UTC
Resetting to default per bug 37789
Comment 14 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2012-06-25 12:39:45 UTC
Being bold and marking this bug WONTFIX. We have no interest in supporting bug printing.
