Small document with visible issue

Controls print when frame is set not to print.

To reproduce:

Add a frame to a document ( Insert -> Frame -> Frame )
Put a combo box in the frame ( Form -> combobox )
Make sure the combo box property Printable is set to yes
In frame properties options tab deselect the print option

In print preview the field still shows.  Should everything in the frame not be printable?

Same issue with version
Comment 2 Oliver Brinzing 2018-11-21 18:26:37 UTC
already reproducible with

AOO415m1(Build:9789)  -  Rev. 1817496
2017-12-11 17:25

but i don't think this is a bug, cause the form controls 
"Printable" property is set to "Yes".

releated to:

Does not hide form controls when "Hide when printing" is selected

the question is: 
should a form control inherit "Printable" property from anchored cell/frame etc.?
Comment 3 libreoffice 2018-11-22 01:32:57 UTC
If the frame is a container, then surely everything within the container would inherit the container's properties e.g. print,hide
