Start with a document for which Formatting Aids, such as Paragraph end, Spaces, and Breaks are turned on.
Print a page(s) of the document.
Formatting Aids no longer show in the document.
If the document is closed and re-opened, formatting aids show again. If the document is edited and saved, formatting aids again re-appear the next time the document is opened.
Formatting aids should not disappear simply because a page(s) is printed.
The condition happens on two different Fedora 16 (64-bit) systems using different printers.
Thanks, but already reported as
'Bug 40482 - CONFIGURATION: Formatting aids - displayed nonprinting characters
become unchecked during printing and PDF export'
