Description Michael Weghorn 2018-08-28 06:06:29 UTC
Since commit ee6dad51150fd53d19f882edfefa879e18f9897d, the "Use only paper size from printer preferences" option in the print dialog (under Linux) is shown in two places:
1) in the "Options" tab
2) in the "Properties" -> "Paper" tab

However, when changing the current value in 2), the change is not reflected in the UI in 1).

Steps to reproduce:

1) open any document
2) open print dialog ("File" -> "Print")
3) click the "Properties" button 
4) make sure the "Paper" tab is active
5) enable the checkbox for "Use only paper size from printer preferences"
6) confirm by clicking "OK"
7) switch to the "Options" tab
8) observe whether the checkbox for "Use only paper size from printer preferences" is enabled/checked there

Actual result:

The checkbox is not enabled, i.e. it does not have the value that was previously set in the "Properties" -> "Paper" tab.

Expected behaviour:

The checkbox should be checked. Changing the value at any of the two above-mentioned places should always be correctly reflected in the UI at the other place as well.
