Description thePanz 2011-06-29 07:04:01 UTC
I've a document with 210 pages, but using "Export as PDF" and choosing to export only a set of pages the resulting PDF is *alwas* the FULL document.

In the "pages" field I set "1 - 22" or "1 - 200" but nothing changes...

Comment 1 Jeffrey 2011-06-29 19:21:27 UTC
Had a six page excerpt on "War and Peace" on Writer and exported the third and fourth pages to PDF successfully. 

1. File -> Export as PDF
2. Clicked pages
3. Typed "3-4" in the box (NO SPACES)
4. Export and named file.

The problem with what you did is that you left spaces between the pages and the hyphen. So the bug should not be "Pages not taken to account", but perhaps that pages <space> hyphen <space> pages should also be accepted in the export.

I can confirm the behavior that Jeffrey described.
Removing spaces between numbers the PDF Export works correctly.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
