Print Format Type

Hi there,
I am trying to customize a print format for delivery notes.
It’s the first time I do a print format customization and I am feeling a bit lost.
There is a point that it’s not very clear for me: What is the difference between Server, Client, JS Print Format Types?

If I have understood, Server can user Jinja templating, JS can use John Resig’s templating and Client it’s pure CSS.

Is it correct?

So far - this is the only one I “understand” (vaguely) - yes

This is what I found in Frappe Documentation:
https://frappe.io/docs/user/en/printing

The terms are slightly different and when it talks about create a custom print format, there is no any mention to Server, Client and JS…

AFAIK, client is old deprecated format and if you want to print in pdf it’s Server

hi…

how i change printing format form normal A4 Size to A4 landscape.

For a custom print with server type you can add
<meta name="pdfkit-orientation" content="Landscape">
in the beginning of your template.

Note it works only in PDF not in JS preview.

Regards.
