New Feature: Just print the drawing

Issue #554 new
Sven Jungclaus created an issue

I'm an oldschooler in pattern drawing. I love doing it by hand, seeing all the lines, put notes on it for the tailors, mark the pockets and so on... Is it somehow possible to print just the drawing.

    I find the drawing quite beautiful, too. And It would be beneficial for teaching patternmaking. So I say yes to this feature.

    We'll have to think about how to do this. It will be some time before this is implemented, unless you would like to ask a programmer (friend, spouse, sibling, co-worker) who can work on it.

    I have several questions related to this issue:

    1. Do you want print whole drawing or separate pattern piece?
    2. Do you need tiled printing?
    3. Do you need export to PNG, SVG, DXF etc.?

    • I would like to print the whole drawing,
    • just in one piece for now
    • export to SVG, path set as polygons would be perfect, otherwise I'll edit and transform the normal SVG with LibreOffice Draw

    Btw... I'm making progress with this. Will hopefully be ready to submit a pull request within a few more days.

    it would be nice to print out all what is visible. With groups it can be controlled, what is printed
