1) Select 'view' -> 'Print Layout'
LO switches to Web Layout.

2) Select 'view' -> 'Print Layout' again
LO Switches to Print Layout

Same thing happens when selecting 'view' -> 'Web Layout'

Both functions act like toggle switches, instead just doing their own thing.
So either fix the menuitems or make 1 menuitem that switches both page layouts (like it is now basically).

Nothing new, I also saw that in OOo 3.1.1
Heritage from OOo, so I modify Version.
Not a real problem, it's a little unexpected, but I doubt that that might cause problems.
But I also agree that the toggle AND selec function seems a little inconsequent.
I did not find a similar pair of icons except from context menu 'Calc -> picture anchor' (to cell <-> to page), that does not toggle.

It's not a real problem as in -crash-...
But, having 2 menuitems that do *exactly* the same thing is just bad programming (or bugtesting).

I second that (re-)selecting each of the items "Print Layout" and "Web Layout" should do what the text implies.

Rationale 1: These items are exclusive and (on Linux) even represented by a group radio buttons. Re-selecting a radio button has to keep the already selected setting.

Rationale 2: If we ever add something like Draft/Outline views, then toggling won't work - then there are more then two states.

@ Rainer:
* I can confirm on "Linux" as well, so Platform = All?
* Removed "infoprovider: Christoph" from whiteboard field

@ xdmx: Excellent feedback - thanks!
