Example Spreadsheet

When using the PDF-Export Dialog (via File - Export as PDF...) in Calc and the  field command "Pages" (##) in footer/header. The field command "Pages" upon export is entered with a wrong count.


How to reproduce:
1. Open attached Spreadsheet (Page-Test.ods)
2. Choose File - Export as PDF...
2.a Under Range, select Pages and 1-3
3. Hit Export
4. Open exported pdf-File with 3 pages

Current behavior:
5. On the footer of each page it reads "x of 6" (pages) - although there are only 3 pages in total.

Expected behavior:
5. On the footer of each page it should read "x of 3" (pages).


This is especially annoying when passing the pdf to other people. Due to the wrong count "x of 6" instead of "x of 3", people "miss the other pages" - which triggers unneeded questions/answers i.e. phone calls/emails/etc.

Hi,

Agreed!

Thanks for providing this clear steps!
Because this is not a 'bug' but rather an 'enhancement' I mark it as such.

Kind regards,
Joren

Hi, I found this problem today when I was doing my important daily work, and filed bug 81707.

But finally I closed thay bug, because I realized that calc is not showing the wrong page count, - it is trying to export all sheets. see my comment in bug 81707.

Should we still keep track this bug, or refile another one?
