When designing a theme, especially a dark theme, it might be necessary to modify the appearance of email contents, via the
.ignore-in-parent-frame specifier in
email-frame.less. One example is the default text color. These changes to the email content now also apply to the print preview, which is not desirable.
Some workarounds are possible
- Using different css specificity for normal email frames and email frames in print previews (although this is tedious with the available options in terms of css specifiers).
- Using the
@media printquery in print preview window. However, this query is currently ignored in the print preview window, while it is applied in the actual print result.
I think it would be better to make the print preview entirely indepent of any additional css markup in the email frame.
