Description Daniel Collins 2018-08-16 17:56:59 UTC
Re: Printing Impress handouts slide ordering. Some time in 2018, a prior bug was (mostly) fixed in which the order setting was always ignored (cannot find that bug at this time to link). Now, if "slides per page" is selected to some number, that feature works. But if "Slides per page" is set to the default "According to layout" setting, then the Order setting is still ignored. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an Impress document with multiple slides.
2. Select File > Print > Document (Handouts). 

Actual Results:
Slides per page is by default set to "According to layout", and Order is set to "Left to right, then down". However, the preview pane shows the slides ordered top-to-bottom-then-right. 

Expected Results:
Slide order should be Left-to-right-then-down, as selected in the "Order" drop-down. 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Note that if the user hand-selects any fixed number in the "Slides per page" drop-down, then the selected Order is honored (e.g., Left-to-right-then-down in the preview pane).

Impress document with twelve slides

Print this document as handouts: File > Print > Document (Handouts). Note that by default Slides per page is "According to layout", Order is "Left to right, then down", but print preview pane shows slides top-bottom-then-right. If we switch Slides per page to any fixed number, then ordering is shown correctly.

Hmm, I see you yourself fixed it: bug 99301 :)
However, you opened this current report against 6.0, but the fix is only in 6.1.
I see the problem in 6.0, but not in 6.1. Should we close as duplicate of the older one?

I agree this looks to be nicely fixed in LO 6.1. (Apparently I got a partial fix in 6.0.) Feel free to close this; thanks for the update.
