@bbeuckSIG  PTC doesn't implement user ideas.  You can verify this by going through the idea lists and see how many of those ideas actually now exist in Thingworx.  They only have this "ideas" forum here for show.

@AndyHilton Thank you for the feedback and sorry you feel that way about the product ideas.

We collect product feedback and ideas here for product managers to review. They do look at the ideas and engage as often as possible. At the time of the post, we can see that 40 ideas have been delivered. We all wish there would be more, of course. 

I'd like to point you to this post from 2 PTC executives where they explain the role of the product managers. They run complex and often lengthy development cycles with multiple streams of input and have to make difficult choices about where to deploy limited resources.

Hi all,

 

since we needed PDF support we built our own Extension based on Playwright. It basically opens a headless Chromium in the background offering most of the print options the regular print dialog of e. g. Chrome also offers.

My colleague will probably share this Extension soon on his github account, if anyone is interested I will be happy to share a link.

 

Best regards
Benny
