BaseDocument.print(PrintContainer) still exists but uses the old DrawEngine (and on my unit test, it crashes).
Will that be migrated to PrintUtils or something from the View API?
I see that HtmlPrintContainer has addLines(List<AttributedCharacterIterator>) but that's not part of the PrintContainer signature. Shouldn't addLines() be moved into some AbstractPrintContainer so it can be reused by other PrintContainer-s?
I would need it, for example, to produce RTF output via a custom PrintContainer implementation.
I have a patch which just created a static HtmlPrintContainer.newAddLines(PrintContainer pc, Font defaultFont, Color defaultColor, Color defaultBackgroundColor, List<AttributedCharacterIterator> lines) method out of the original addLines(List<AttributedCharacterIterator> lines) method. This way I am still able to use the other PrintContainer, but it's just a workaround.
Should this still be kept opened?
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
Thanks for your cooperation,
