Trying to print all n pages of a Writer-document only n-1 pages will be printed
You have to add an extra page to get n pages printed
Trying to print last page is not possible. Adding extra page is oligatory.

@ Bernd Kloss:
Thank you for your bug report!
@ Alex Thurgood:
As you are our QA expert for printing problems on Mac OS X, could you please take a look at this new bug report and try to reproduce it? (I still can’t print from my machine, therefore I can’t help here :-(
Thank you very much!
Meanwhile I am working with 126.96.36.199, but the problem is still existing.
If you are printing parts of a document in writer with more than one page, you get errors like
'no page selected'
document with 5 pages and you try to print all then only page 1 is being printed and a second dialogue opens that alows you to print pages 1 - 4
There has to be an extra page added to print pages 1-5
The last page of a n-page document is not prinable. n+1 has to be added to get page n
This problem does not occur using MS Office 2011
Confirming. Very awkward indeed.
How to reproduce :
1) Open test document.
2) Press the Command+P keys
3) In the print dialog, select a page range choosing from 5 to 5 (i.e. from page 5 to page 5)
4) Error message is displayed "No document selected"
5) The preview display then changes in the print preview of the print dialog and removes the last page. It is now impossible to select page 5 of the document.

> Confirming. Very awkward indeed.
I reproduced the buggy behaviour with LO 188.8.131.52.
Testing with another document that had no embedded images shows that the problem lies in the document itself or the way it is being parsed or fed to the printer subsystem.
The problem is document specific, the question now is to find out what exactly triggers the problem.
I tried removing the manual page breaks - no difference.
I tried deleting some of the images, starting from the end of the document - no difference.
@Bernd : we need a minimal document that reproduces the problem - there are currently too many possibilities to be able to single out where the problem is coming from in the document you have posted.
Removing header and footer made no difference.
Perhaps it is the way the image are anchored (to paragraph) ?
Hmm, seems to be linked to image management within the document. Changing anchors makes no difference either.

Print bug, simple doc without anything
I have found a workaround, and what might be the cause of the problem.
Reset the margins to say, 1cm top and bottom, and the I can print out page 4 on its own just fine (in fact any page I choose). You can then reset the margins again to the value you want and the printing will continue to work.
This would indicate that the problem lies in the initial margin settings.
Setting this as duplicate of 35771, which in turn seems to be linked to bug 36799
