Quick print from DNG


A very nice feature of DNG that I just ran into is the “Generate a document-style report for this view”. The way this feature is implemented  basically gives you a quick print button.

printView

The “Generate a document-style report for this view” :

  • preserves the sorting and filtering defined by the view
  • is very accessible through the toolbar button
  • requires minimal user configuration, you can simply click next in the wizard

One downside is that it uses a private DNG REST API for accessing the data so you cannot replicate this in standalone RPE. Another minor problem is that if you have sorted/filtered your view the heading numbers will most likely be off since filtering/reordering a view does not change the heading numbers.
