Could you provide more information about the problem and expected behavior? I don't see how it is related to MDB.

added MDB support page in print view for your reference. 


When we are using plain angular 6 application with window.print() is giving more setting option.
But when we integrated with MDB, More setting options is not displayed when we are saving as PDF.

Thank you for the details. We will check if this problem is somehow related with our components.

We have tested it on Windows 10 & Edge, Windows 10 & Firefox, Windows 10 & Chrome, Windows 7 & Firefox, Ubuntu & Firefox, and we're not able to reproduce your problem - with every check there were a More settings option (or something similar).

I don't think that this problem is related to the MDB.

Could you please check your problem on another machine? Maybe there's problem with your browser / device.

Best Regards,

Hi Damian Gemza,

If it is working in your end please share some screenshot for our references. Because when we have debug deep found one class which is differ in angular 6 and angular 6 with MDB in windows 8/chrome browser version - 71.0.3578.98.

Angular 6 with MDB - print-preview-more-settings hidden

Angular 6 - print-preview-more-settings

When we are removing hidden class from chrome browser more setting option are getting enabled.

Waiting for your response

Looks like this problem is caused by bootstrap styles on @page element.

Please try to add this rule to your styles.scss:

@page { size: auto; }

Hi Damian Gemza,

We have tested with different browser and devices as well but still save as PDF not showing more setting option. Below I have attached(with/without MDB) video for more information . In both reference video we are using window.print().

Without MDB with angular reference

MDB with angular reference

Even I have try to save below url as PDF where I am not seeing any more setting option.

We will take a closer look at this problem, but it is very strange and hard to debug. pro commented 6 months ago

The problem was with bootstrap. Bootstrap explicitly has @page { size: A4; } We update it from A4 to auto
