[tdf-discuss] PinterSettins are no longer persistent (windows)


Hallo

Sinds 3.3 (windows) all PrinterSettings except the Printer Names are no longer persistent and not stored anywhere not in the profile, and not in the document. Within the printer settings we have the "options" who are not Printer specific and we have "Settings" who are bound to a specific printer. Both are all lost after reloading the document, We can use the Printer specific settings during but only when starting the printing itself the choosen settings are remenbered as lo,ng the document stays open.

Setting the PageSizes using the API is also broken, please trie the included code with a printer who accept to changes the PaperSizes

PLease can someone confirm this, so i can fill a issue
