Title: printing from Arduino IDE
Post by: queenidog on Jan 23, 2018, 09:07 pm
Printing is lousy: prints code not wysiwyg but zoomed in so text falls off the edges of the page.

Anytime I want to print an Arduino sketch, I cut and paste it to Notepad ++ that very neatly color codes everything, prints it out like professional document.  (Plus Notepad ++ has tons of options, including choosing your own colors.)

It's just another step I have to take to get a document in hand for my hardcopy files.

I use notepad++ too when I want to print - but that rarely happens anymore.
Have you ever tried to use another printerdriver e.g. a PDF writer or so, that might do the trick. (not tried)
