This has been one of our main concerns too. At the time of project planning, we were thinking more about QML support because of the missing printing support within QML. However, if it is not possible to split the dialog off qtbase, we could probably redo the QML part and write the UI using QWidget instead but that would be our last option.

The CUPS backend API doesn’t support all of these options yet. So we just put up dummy dropdown and we’ll add backend functions to them as soon as the API supports it.
