Using Po8nov on Mdk81

On my system the most legible on-screen font is a Serif font,
while the best results from my printer is with a San Serif font.
They are both as desired in Prefs,
but it requires about 6 mouse clicks to toggle from one to the other.

regards,
Richard.

Why would you want to toggle from 1 to the other?

Looks like he explained himself pretty clearly to me. Some people think of printing as a one-click process. If that becomes a seven-click process, they'll go elsewhere.

OT: I visited your website, thumperward, and the title says "Listen to young girls masturbate". Care to explain yourself?

The site used to be a parody porn site and I haven't bothered changing the title on the redirect. If you have a real urge to listen to young girls masturbate, as would appear to be the tone from your post, you could try sending a private message rather than simply stating that you are off-topic.

OK, now I understand the problem. I guess that would just require adding a rule to your user.css to force san-serif at media="print", no swithicng involved.

But I guess an UI to do it could be handy.

Looking at userChrome-example.css. Will have to study up on css.
Thanks for comment.

Basically, Phoenix prints the page using the displayed font, which requires reducing (that's another area where change to Prefs don't survive a restart of Phoenix) to about 50% to print well. The SanSerif font is most legible printed.

Well this is untested but I assume this would do it

@media print { body {font-family:sans-serif !important;} }

You can of cource set size too (% will probably be the unit that works best)

I guess userChrome.css won't do anything in this case. userContent.css would be the file to add a rule to.
