Printing in macOS Working

Posted on Aug. 23, 2021

New builds of Simply Fortran 3.20 are now available for macOS that should allow printing from the integrated development environment. Our build system was not properly deploying the necessary printing backends when packaging the application for distribution.

This improvement does have some caveats, however. Printing to a file can be problematic on modern macOS versions because macOS security may deny access to writing output files to certain locations. Additionally, print preview does not work due to a bug in the graphics toolkit that fails to launch macOS's Preview application. We'll continue working on the issue going forward.
