Command line options are fine, but I believe not enough: there are also times
where you look at data interactively and want to print stuff out to show other
people. Having to go through the settings each time is a major pain.
As I said in the original report, I'd suggest defaulting to landscape but I
really believe being able to specify the orientation and margins in the
settings is needed. What we may possibly simplify is having only global
settings (for all types of printed output: PDF, printer, etc...) instead of
per-printer as used to be possible with kst 1.x / KDE3.
