Description Jaap Stolk 2011-05-16 08:04:33 UTC
Created attachment 46771 [details]
spreadsheet file with an auto filter, hiding several rows

Rows in a LibreOffice Calc sheet can be hidden using a data filter.

What does not work:

Defining a Print Range using a selection across any of the hidden rows fails (without error message).

What does work:

Defining the Print Range using a selection when the filter shows "All" data. (no hidden rows)
Defining the Print Range across hidden rows, using "Format"-> "Print Ranges" -> "Edit" -> "-User Defined-" -> "$A$13:$D$25".
Defining the Print Range using a selection, somewhere that does not cross any hidden rows.
After successfully setting the Print Range, the filter can then hide rows, and these hidden rows are not printed (as expected).

What has no effect:

If the section is made using the keyboard with "Shift", has the same problem as when the selection is made using by dragging the mouse.
(When selecting the range with the keyboard, the down button also cycles through the hidden rows)
"Normal" or "Page break view" makes no difference, just easyer to see that setting the Print Range failed.

Expected behaviour:

Defining a Print Range using a selection across hidden(filtered) rows should work, just like entering the Print Range cell numbers manually in the Edit Print Range window.

The attached filtered_print_range.ods is created from scratch in (Win32) LibreOffice 3.3.2, and has only been saved in the native ods format.

Works in 3.6.1 on Fedora 64 bit
used this: Format->Print range->Edit
for assigning print range for selection
so, WFM
Comment 8 Jaap Stolk 2012-09-05 08:53:59 UTC
Format->Print range->Edit works (as I stated in the original report), even choosing the "use selection" option in that dialogue works (which I did not try before).
But the reported problem: setting the print range using Format->Print range->Define (crossing hidden rows of an autofilter) is still there.

I just confirmed this bug in version e29a214 (Windows 32-bit)

Regarding Bugzilla: this report was automatically changed from NEW to NEEDINFO,
and then automatically closed after 6 month, without anyone actually asking for more info. Since I'm the original reporter, I'm not sure whether that counts as VERIFIED, so I'm changing it to REOPENED.
Comment 9 Florian Reisinger 2012-09-05 09:23:00 UTC
Yep, confirming this bug @ Windows 7 x64 LibreOffice

Still reproducible.

this bug is still in: Versie: (Dutch, Windows)
Build ID: 7074905676c47b82bbcfbea1aeefc84afe1c50e1

As mentioned above, following the route: edit print range -> select area, works, but selecting an area, and then: edit -> define print range, does not work.
Comment 16 Stan 2017-07-06 00:36:21 UTC
Confirmed bug is still in Mac
Comment 17 Borja López Soilán 2018-04-09 09:25:34 UTC
This bug is still alive! 

- LO on Linux Mint (x64) -> "no data" on print preview
- LO on Windows 10 (x64) -> "no data" on print preview
- LO on Windows 10 (x64) -> "no data" on print preview
- LO on Windows 10 (x64) -> shows everything on print preview

Reproduced with:

Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: de7356c2e0cb099fac396808b5a86a0393b48e5f
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3

... so marking as affecting all OS.

Probably related to Bug 64703 ?
