Description Henry Izurieta 2019-05-04 18:34:53 UTC
In the option to "save combined documents", include an option to save in pdf format in individual files.
The same could be implemented in the option to print in pdf, but individual documents, in addition to the existing one that prints all in a single file.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
This is not a bug, but when I clic in "File an enhancement request" open the bugzilla.

I want to improve Libreoffice

Combine dialog

This dialog save in individual files, but in odt format, not in pdf format.

Hello Henry,
This is already possible to do.
Choose PDF as output format once the save as dialog is prompted.

You're right, it's in the printing options, like pdf printing.

But I insist, it is necessary to improve the usability of the document combination option because, like me, other people will not easily find what they need.

I think it's just a matter of improving dialog boxes.

Hello Henry,
In your case, you want the PDF option to be displayed in the dialog, another person might want another option and so on and eventually we end up with a list of 15 options that makes it more confusing than helpful
Thanks for the suggestion, but selecting PDF as output from the save as dialog is consistent throughout LibreOffice
