I am not sure how anyone requiring to print a portion of a card and running a Mac on Yosemite (not sure if any other systems are affected) can even consider migrating to LC 7 when such a fundamental feature is unavailable. 

I wouldn’t call this a bug, I would call it that LC 7 is not fit for purpose. You certainly cannot call LC 7.0.0 and LC 7.0.1 and LC 7.0.3 stable.

If stable mean it doesn’t crash because printing part of a card is missing then that’s OK.

Perhaps the next release there will be no fields and because it doesn’t crash it’s OK to call it stable and the release after it will only have three wheels instead of four, it doesn’t crash so it is stable.
