Description nouvo09 2020-05-27 17:38:35 UTC
There is no more possibility to print more than one exemplary at the time.

The "quantity" field does not exist any more.

Just downloaded build 3d775be2011f3886db32dfd395a6a6d1ca2630ff

Is this your case? See the video here...

Version: 6.4.4.1
Build ID: b50bc319eca5cd5b66fbfe2ebd0d3bd1eed099b5
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: ro-RO (ro_RO.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

If yes, there are some "more" options to show more lines of options.

Finally I got it, yes.

But this option to hide this basical option is not very relevant.

Thanks anyway

I agree with you. For some people, that use number of copies very often, is very hard to click on more very some minutes...

Would be nice to move Even and Odd pages to more, and Number of copies up.

+1

And why not use tabs as previously instead of these ridiciculous buttons, hard to see, hard to find, hard to use and whithout any description?

Everyone can mistake. Please just correct.

However I found, how to say to print multiple copies, I strongly do not welcome the change hinding it behind extra button. 
For office work it is probably the most used function when printing and it reduces productivity. 
If print dialougue was supposed to be simpler, I suggest hiding print range selection, but not number of copies. 
Please, go back.

changed hardware to All. It is the same on windows.

Also this is a regression, on stable 6.3.6.2 there is an good ald dialogue.

Quick fix - just expand "more" option by default, number of copies is really a basic option.
