Quick page format selection for printing

Hi guys,
How about a drop down icon in the print menu to make a quick selection between most common formats: A4,A3,A2,A1 & A0 ? This would alleviate going all the steps of the "Edit" menu...

Hi J-J,

nice idea! :D

I use the "Drawing Preferences" Button in the Print Option Bar and I think it is pretty fast to make changes to the Page settings ...

just three clicks and I have a new format.

I would rather think about to reduce the selection of offered Page sizes like the "Use reduced selection of fonts" option below Application Preferences / Draw / Text

That would also eliminate the question of: What is the most common format?
What do you think?

Hi Husky,
I use them all, A0 trough A4.
Large formats are nice with a pdf export, because you can zoom on details. That was just a suggestion from my typical usage.

I think that it is a good idea. I use to press Ctrl+i to go fast to drawing preferences, but, at least, would be a great thing if the window "drawing preferences" remembers the last tab opened, to avoid one more click to open the desired tab.

It would also be very useful to be able to save - with their name - any customized formats

IMHO
