Description samz 2020-05-03 09:41:34 UTC
Description:
In the "Print" dialog popup (File > Print), the text field beside the Pages radio button is pre-filled with the current page number. But the same field in the "PDF Options" dialog (File > Export as > Export as PDF) is not pre-filled. Please, pre-fill this filed with the current page number.
IMO, any field (like this one) should be clickable (to edit is content), and the click should activate its related radio/checkbox button. Actually we have to click the button first, then we can edit the field beside.
Thank you in advance and regards.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. LO Writer: Menu File > Export as ... > Export as PDF
2. In this dialog "PDF Options", the field beside the PAGES radio button is not pre-filled with the current page number.

Actual Results:
In the dialog "PDF Options", the field beside the PAGES radio button is not pre-filled with the current page number.

Expected Results:
In the dialog "PDF Options", the field beside the PAGES radio button is pre-filled with the current page number.


Reproducible: Always

I confirm it with

Version: 7.0.0.0.alpha0+ (x64)Build ID: 8c8b3a4f83f67882b284ddc3b3fe10d3fe6dedf4CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win; Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Language: en-GBCalc: CL

I would treat it as enhancement (but let's also ask Design-Team)

Don't see a negative impact on usability (nor much advantage of adding the current page number to the field where you specify the from-to pages).

It's filled in "print" dialog, so I guess - for consistency, it should be filled here too. 

I think the UX issue is that you may not know the number of all pages, so you would need to go out of the dialog just to get this information, and then go back in.
