<title>Print</title>
<h1>Print to PDF</h1>

A PDF of the differences can be generated from the File->Print Pdf menu.

The PDF will be generated from the current screens, so make sure any
settings like context and ignore are done and you have regenerated the diff.

The following choices are available (command line flag in parens):

  *  Header Size. Font size to use for page header. (-printHeaderSize)
  *  Paper size. Landscape  will always be used. (-printPaper)
  *  Chars per line. See below. (-printCharsPerLine)
  *  RGB background values for diff display. Text is always black.  (-printColor*)

From the command line you can also give -printFont <ttffile/afmfile>.
See [./usage.wiki|Usage] for all command line flags.

The font size is automatically scaled to fit the given characters per line.
The GUI will give you choices that fit all or most lines in that line length.
Longer lines will be wrapped.
