I get emails once a week asking about printing org charts on Cogmap and why it is excruciating. Based on that, I wanted to offer up some clarifications on what the deal is:
- Most browsers only support printing a certain number of pixels wide of content, so very wide org charts get cut off by the browser.
- We do have a very nice print.css that lays out the boxes. The only way we could shrink the width of org charts would be to compress the boxes to the point of illegibility. We don’t do that.
We would love ideas in this area, or even better, send us better print.css files! We know hackers are out there. Thanks.
