KateRenderer: when printing initially set the color scheme to Printing
Needs RevisionPublic

Otherwise the print preview dialog somehow gets the text color from the
current default color scheme; also the user can't change the color scheme
either from the print preview dialog or the "print" dialog launched from
the preview dialog. All in all, this seems like a safe default.

BUG: 391678
FIXED-IN: 5.55.0

Test Plan
  • Change the default color scheme in kate to a dark one, e.g. Breeze dark
  • Open the print preview dialog, note that the text color is the one used in the breeze dark scheme, but the background color is still white

Apply the diff, the print preview dialog will be using the Printing color scheme
as expected.

Looking at the printing pages, I can find the following, see screenshot. Please note the ComboBox where you can select a printing schema. In other words, this should not be hard-coded, I think it should be explicitly set somewhere to what's specified in this combobox. @ahmadsamir Can you have a look again?

@dhaumann: in the screenshot that's "file -> print"; the issue here is with "file -> print preview", where the extra options tabs (including "Layout") aren't added by ktexteditor. :)
