Description Mike Kaganski 2019-09-21 08:26:17 UTC
In the new Print dialog in version 6.3, the two previously independent groups of settings (Range from General tab, and Page Sides from Page Layout tab) were merged into one single radio group. This prevents one from selecting something in the document, or define a pages range, and only print even/odd pages from that selection/range.

The examples of user complaints are:

This is usability regression.

Problem persists in LibreOffice 6.4.3.2

I doubt the severity. Printing only even/odd pages of a range is a corner case. And easy to work around by entering the actual page numbers. Plus, was it ever possible to print even/odd pages before?

Nevertheless we should solve the issue. I suggest to have buttons for Odd/Even that switch the selection to Range and enter the pages in this field. If pages has been filled with a value before, eg. 1-20 we could modify that.
