Description Paolo Benvenuto 2011-10-05 07:38:23 UTC
The print dialog has the option to print selected pages. By default it show the value "first-last page".

This default value is of no usefulness.

A useful default value is:
- if no selection, the page the cursor is on
- if selection,  the pages range the selection embraces

Currently we have bug 34697 to implement this, which will be in 3.5 for Writer. Other apps are not finished yet.

> - if selection,  the pages range the selection embraces
Not sure about this. :-) So change subject according to this.

paolobenve@gmail.com - Thanks for your good faith, but please don't change the version number, it is the *earliest* version where the problem occurred. See more at http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport_Details#Version

So I change it back.

I think that's been applied now on Writer with LO 4.0.4.2 (Win7 32bit)

Comment 7 sasha.libreoffice 2013-06-27 06:22:25 UTC
In 4.0.4 and 4.1.0 not implemented yet
Steps to reproduce:
0. Open or create document spanning several pages
1. Select some text beginning on one page and ending on another
2. Ctrl-P and see field "Pages"
Expected: range of pages, for example on screenshot above should be 2-3 because selection starts on page 2 and ends on page 3
Actually: only page where selection ends.

Ups..I've never imagine before about that. I thought about thumbnail preview on the left side when we change pages selection.
