Description Paolo Benvenuto 2013-05-18 13:20:45 UTC
Reproduce it:
- open a new document and write something on it
- save the doc
- ctl-p, and set booklet mode
- ok: LO prints the doc in booklet mode

try saving the doc: nothing happens, the doc isn't considered dirty and LO doesn't save it.

Now if you close and reopen the doc, and try to print, booklet mode is lost. I.e.: the document was dirty because of printing setting, but LO didn't note it.

Print again in booklet mode, and after printing, do a trivial change like adding a space and deleting it => the doc is dirty. Close it and reopen, and again try printing: booklet mode is preserved.

Hi Paolo,

Did you have a look at Tools > Options > Load/save .. section Load where you can check printer settings?

Apologies - I should have understood that from your first description, 4th paragraph.

I can confirm this. Even in 3.3.0 it was like that, so an older issue.
