#2698: PrinteResize

These days it’s ridiculous that, if I have to print something, the print should ever emerge from the printer unreadable.

When this happens, a lot of paper gets wasted, not to mention the time and frustration involved.

Today’s invention is therefore a program, running on my printer, which will identify text portions of a print job and automatically rescale them so that the printed font size will correspond with what is, for me, a comfortably legible size.

This might require some messing with the formatting of a complex document, for example, but the printer would ensure that all elements get printed clearly, even if the regions aren’t as closely packed as they were on the original page.
