Description allottnigel 2022-09-21 23:05:29 UTC
In earlier versions - specifically up to (which I still use because of this problem), I could select an item in Draw and then proceed to the first printer dialog screen, push the "selection" button and only the selected item would preview and print. This does not work with more recent versions - all items, both selected and unselected show in the preview and print on the page. (May be related to Bug 40163?)

I have the same problem (in several new versions too).

I use Kubuntu 18.04 LTS with their version of LO ( now) => the problem exists in various platforms and versions...

1. Create two shapes in Draw, select the other one
2. Print - click Selection radio button

Preview should only show the selected shape

Srijan hasn't been active since 2020.
Mike and Heiko, as reviewers of the patch, any chance you could have a look?

I have the same problem, as defined in the first post, with LibreOffice (x86_64) under Windows 10 Pro : all the page with the selection is printed and selected, but not only the selected shapes.
