Description skiani 2012-03-28 20:00:52 UTC
Currently if I have a 10 sheet drawing or 10 sheet presentation and I want to export all the sheets as png files I have to export one sheet at a time. For each sheet I have to enter the resolution and page size. It is very tedious.

Enhancement: Add ability to select slide to the bitmap export dialog (png, bmp, jpg, etc) similar to how you select pages in the print dialog. Default could be "Selection" which is similar functionality to what is current. If you select more than one slide it will automatically append the slide number to the filename. For example if you type in slides 2,7,8-12,14 and you enter the filename of "My Exported Slides" when you export a png, it will output the followings:

My Exported Slides02.png
My Exported Slides07.png
My Exported Slides08.png
My Exported Slides08.png
My Exported Slides10.png
My Exported Slides11.png
My Exported Slides12.png
My Exported Slides14.png

Until someone will work on this enhancement request, you can use export the html. This does not only generate the html-files, but generate a picture from each slide. You can choose, whether it is png or jpg. They are simple named img0.png, img1.png,...

No, close but this is just not the same thing. I need 300dpi export of every page to make the legal documents requirements. html has too limited control of export format. Right now only way to export is with controlled size and resolution is one page at a time. If document is 50 pages that is very tedious.

Not certain why closing as "invalid" but here is information requested. Now if developers are rejecting the enhancement then I suppose that would need to be set to "Wontfix". for now I will set to unconfirmed as the instructions recommend. Here are responses to questions for reopening:

> a) Provide details of your system including your operating system and the
> latest version of LibreOffice that you have confirmed the bug to be present

Affects all operating systems and versions up to 4.0.3
 
> b) Provide easy to reproduce steps – the simpler the better

1. Open or create a drawing with many pages.
2. Select page 1.
3. Select File/Export
4. Set file type to .png
5. Set file name to something like "page1.png"
6. Set the options for page size and resolution (this will reset everytime).
7. Repeat steps 2 to 6 for every page.

> c) Provide any test case(s) which will help us confirm the problem

Any drawing with multiple pages, best test case need >10 pages. I often deal with >50 sheet drawing.
 
> d) Provide screenshots of the problem if you think it might help

Would not help

> e) Read all comments and provide any requested information

Biggest comment was if exporting as html is acceptable work around as that creates thumbnails of all the pages. This does not however allow you to set the page size and resolution as you can exporting one page at a time. Other work around is export one page at a time which is very tedious and can take a great deal of time if you have lots of sheets/pages in your drawing.

The other comment as "NeedsInfo" warning which I provide. If not clear and I can try to post a video demonstrating out tedious it is to manually exporting one sheet at a time.

changed to NEW: seems to be an interesting improvement proposal

Sounds like an EASYHACK.

No need to add needsDevlEval for easyhacks (but ok it does not hurt).

need code pointer, difficulty<foo>
Comment 18 jani 2016-09-15 15:25:51 UTC
Adding the menu entry is an easyHack, but making the code loop is non-trivial.
Comment 19 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-15 15:26:51 UTC
Removing keyword 'needsDevEval' as this bug is an easyHack
Comment 20 Roman Kuznetsov 2018-06-16 15:29:03 UTC
