Printing settings (i.e. paper size on printer, orientation, number up, etc..) are not retained, and must be set for every print run. There are several places to check and alter to produce, e.g Brochures A5 on A4 paper. Earlier version retained these setting between runs. This is the desired behaviour. The setting are ALSO not retained with a saved document.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new A5 page sized document
2. Enter the print dialogue and set all the various options needed to print A5 on A4 paper as a brochure.
4. Enter the print dialogue again, note that all the carefully set setting have been replaced by brain-dead defaults. Scream.
See above. (or buy a copy of a well known competitive product.)
Platform (if different from the browser):
Ubuntu 12.04 up-to-date as at 20120730. 64bit.
This is reproducible with LO 184.108.40.206 (Win7 Home, 64bit), but I think there should also be an option to set all entries back to standard, otherwise, if you amend them for a specific document and afterwards want to print a standard document, then you would have to remind all the amendments you made and amend them back to standard. Therefore, I think this issue needs more evaluation, if and how a possible solution could/should be.
