no comments but comments section for printing
Can't reproduce it. You used Microsoft Print to PDF. Does it only happen with this program? I tried with PDF creator. Do you get the same result with that program?

Print Dialog from Document with content
Think i found the mistake:
maybe i set the comment print property in options / writer / printing.
But if i could set it there, is it also a good idea to enable this property on printing dialog, also if there are no comments?
A Problem also, if i change it back in options / writer / printing to no comments, the property in printing dialog still be on printing comments. Only after writer restart it will set
And there is a second strange behavier:
if i set in options / writer / printing the comment print property to border, the print previews of the printing dialogs looking different. If i open the print window from document, the document will be shown, but if i open it from print preview a empty document will be shown. Have a look at the added pictures.
I could finally reproduce it and marked it as a duplicate of bug 91680, because I thought it's the same Do you think, it is different from bug 91680?
i think it's a little bit different than bug 91680.
Moving it back to UNCONFIRMED until someone else confirms it.

I could reproduce it (see comment 7).
1. Open a document with comments or add comments to a new document
2. Open File -> Print
3. Select Print Comments "Place in margins"
4. Print the document or cancel print dialog
5. Delete all comments
6. Open File -> Print
Print comments "Place in margin" is selected and can't be changed.
Looks like there's a new bug "7. Try to print, print dialog won't appear" but this one remains.
