I cannot speak about the settings. I thought those are saved somewhere,
like in the ~/.local/share/evolution/printing.ini file. There's a
problem that WebKitGTK+ uses its own printing dialog, which may or may
not be a reason why the old settings are not restored (and/or also

As far as I can tell, no print settings at all are retained between
invocations of printing, in particular "Scale", which annoys me a lot,
since the default scale is much too large; I have to set the scale to
75% each time I print anything. It would also be nice to have a
preview of what is to be printed as the name "Print Preview" implies.
The old page I linked to gives an indication of what a proper "Print
Preview" page might look like.

makes fixing any of this difficult:
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79226 I have just experimented with changing "scale" in
from 100 to 75, but it seems to make no difference. Maybe a
difference will show up when I reboot the system.
