Smaller font in euwiki PDF downloads than in other wikis
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

It is two days since downloading the article https://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lehen_Mundu_Gerra with the "Download as PDF" option in euwiki is giving documents with a very small font-size, smaller than the one given by enwiki or eswiki PDF creators. This font-size is too small to read and creates strange layouts in articles.

But I ca't fint any difference on why this article is downloaded in such a small font.

This is still happening.

Also an issue with Proton. I suspect this is Chromium dynamically choosing a viewport suitable viewport width, to accommodate the panorama picture in the article in question.. (the file is Wrecked ammunition train3.jpg). It probably also happens for very wide tables on a page.

Comparison between an English version of this article and the eu version. Both articles have the same computed font-size when I view the print styles in the inspector. Zoom reset to "Actual size" in both PDFs. A font size difference is clearly visible. While a styling issues (PDF-Rendering), fixing this probably requires changes to the print config of chromium (if there is even an option for this) so also tagging with Proton.

Chromium has a --window-size option, that Proton might be able to use for making viewport consistent ? Downside of that would probably be that very wide images and tables might get cut off of course.

This is still happening.
