Cleans up printing for Gmail.
Hi all, friendly neighbourhood extension creator here. Long story short, I have no time to maintain this - PrettyPrintGmail started out as a hobby and gradually grew and grew until I was knife-fighting a hydra. Several hours have gone into this and what with everything else going on right now in my life, this extension is low on the priority list.
Something doesn't work? Your options:
1. IF YOU'RE A DEVELOPER
Go on over to https://github.com/shivankaul/prettyprintgmail and file a PR. I would be more than happy to provide you with any assistance I can.
2. IF YOU'RE NOT A DEVELOPER

In other words, without help, I cannot maintain this extension.
OPTIONS: Right click extension icon and press Options. Now, select whether you'd like subject / from / to / date + time to be printed for your emails!
MULTIPLE PRINTING: From the Gmail main page, select all the emails you want to print, and press the extension icon (printer button). You can also press Alt+P instead of pressing extension icon but if some thing else uses this shortcut then it won't have the intended effect.
Note that all of your emails will be compiled into one PDF. This takes time, so please be patient. This feature has been tested with printing up to 25 emails at one time.
SINGLE THREAD PRINTING: Simply open an email thread, and press extension icon.
SINGLE EMAIL IN LONG THREAD PRINTING: Open the particular email you want to print, click the down arrow near top-right of the email (next to the reply button), and select Print. Voila, prettified email. Check screenshot #3 if this is confusing.
Q. It's not working :(
A. Aww. You can head on over to http://feedback.shivankaul.com and if you give me a full debug log, I promise to prioritize and look into the error you're getting.
Q. Wrong emails are being selected for printing :(
A. Refresh Gmail - Go to label/folder - Select emails and click Pretty Print icon. It's possible that you selected other emails and that's confusing the extension. Starting from a clean slate will help.
Q. I can't find the extension icon! What do I click to print my emails?
A. If you can't find the extension icon (orange printer button) next to address bar, click on the three dots on the extreme right of address bar. A popup with a number of extension icons should show up. One of these (the orange printer one) will be PrettyPrintGmail. Right click on this and click 'Keep in Toolbar'.
If extension icon is pressed outside of mail.google.com, it will simply navigate to mail.google.com.
Go to github.com/ShivanKaul/prettyprintgmail for a much prettier README.
Currently works for Mac, Windows, ChromeOS, and Linux. Note that this extension is meant for Gmail only. It does not work for Inbox (by Google), but if you use Inbox there's already an easy way to print emails - click the Print button.
