Should be fixed in SVN. Please give it a try.

The final fix is still my workaround as any clean solution is not possible given the way the printing code in NSView is written.

Looks like my theory is correct. When replacing the line in NSImage

[_lockedView lockFocus];
[_lockedView _lockFocusInContext: [window graphicsContext] inRect: [_lockedView bounds]];

the resulting PDF is correct and the images get displayed correctly after the printing. Now I only need to find a proper way to integrate this change into GNUstep. Sorry, but this will have to wait until after my holidays.

My current hypotheses for this problem is that it is caused by the image caching. If the image caching happens during a print operation the code in NSView _lockFocusInContext:inRect: wrongly uses the prining graphics context for the caching. I still don't have an idea how to verify this and after that fix it.

I discovered the following while opening and printing this to PDF from INK

1) images of the RTFD will load in Ink on demand, while scrolling down
2a) if the images are all loaded, they will print
2b) if they were not, they won't print except for the few loaded and, once printed, scrolling the document won't ever load them again

Clipping appears to be a different problem, related to window-width and page size. If, like in my case, the two match, the output is quite sensible.

The same problem if you save as postscript.

Open the attached file with Ink and then save this as PDF with the Print panel. Now open the PDF file. You will see that not all images was included in the PDF.
