Description hardy 2011-10-03 13:18:17 UTC
This happens in LibreOffice 3.4.3 release.
It has not happened in OpenOffice 3.2

Here is what to do to reproduce the unwanted behavior:

* create a new Impress slideshow with 2 slides (for example)
* use the menu: file - print
* in the print dialoge set: 
  print all transparencies, print Handout (important), 2 slides per page
* already now you can see on the left hand side of the print dialog,
  that Impress intends to print an additional, surplus, second empty page,
  at the end of the printout

And in the final printing, this surplus page at the end really gets printed.

This also works with more then two slides on the handout.

This behavior is nasty, because I often print those handouts into pdf documents. And it is a non-trivial task to remove the last page from a big pdf document.

I hope this can be easily fixed. As said above, this bug is new in LibreOffice. It has not been there in OpenOffice before (but many other bugs have...)

[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:

I confirm: This bug is fixed in LO (or maybe even earlier).
