summary: "Print screen" and similar functions
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
depends: cooked-printer
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

Support for locally-initiated printing functions such as "print screen".

This will require something similar to simple Windows GDI line-printer emulation to be implemented.

The best you can do currently is copy and paste from the PuTTY window to another program, and print from there. (Since r6555 / 2006-02-14, PuTTY has supported copying text with a full set of colours and other attributes.)

Alternatively, PrintNow will apparently cause Alt+PrintScreen to print the current window display to a printer (instead of just copying it to the clipboard).

Audit trail for this wish.
