Description LordGiodai 2012-01-24 16:04:10 UTC
> People who used MS Office before have a complaint about LibreOffice:
  ---> Printing only even pages or odd pages is a pain in LibreOffice.
>      Lots of people doesn't know that left pages means "even" and right pages means "odd"
>    --> Why don't you include the terms "odd" and "even" beside the "right" and "left" terms? The options might look like this (at File/Print/Page Layout/Page Sides/Include) :

    + "All pages"
    + "Back sides / Left pages (even numbers)"
    + "Front sides / Right pages (odd numbers)"

    Page numbering is the primal factor for identifying pages. The terms that are actually used in LibreOffice are only better reminded when pages are destined for book confeccioning; however, before getting the pages together, they might be organizated first :-)

     Lots of users will thank you for making their life easier.

Thanks for bugreport with new idea.
reproduced in 3.5.3. Used this place:
File->Printer settings->Options
changing status to New

Have print odd and even pages is very important for print on both sides in printers without duplex unit: print the even pages, recharge in the printer tray the same pages and print the odd pages.

Since I started using OpenOffice/LibreOffice I miss this option. Reading this I found out it's possible to print only even/odd pages, but it sould be more easier to identify this functionality.

I think it sould be an option in the main tab of the printing window to can select printing only even/odd pages. Like in Okular or MS Office, for example. I'd really appreciate it.

This was done from 6.3 with new print dialog, so could be marked Fixed. 
But let me mark duplicate for the ongoing bug.
