Every web developer has had to deal with this. Open up the print stylesheet…make some tweaks…open browser…open print preview…close print preview…make more tweaks…open print preview…etc. And yeah yeah yeah…there is a way to emulate the print css in the browser, but that doesn’t do squat when trying to adjust content to fit the width of whatever page standard you’re supporting (letter/A4/etc.)
Well, here’s a bit of a shortcut for at least the closing/opening of print preview. Open the print preview window, right click on the preview, and click “Inspect Element”.
this.printPreview.previewArea_.previewGenerator_.pageRanges_ = null;
That will refresh your print preview window every 3 seconds. My plan is to expand on this, and make it a Chrome plug-in that listens using an observer.
