Description LaurentZG 2013-08-26 15:28:30 UTC

I am wondering if you could please add the option to select "Odd or Even Pages" under "Range and Copies" in Libre Office's print specification dialog? As you most probably already know this is an option available in Adobe Reader.

When printing double sided with a printer which is not able to print double sided at once one have to, as you know, turn the pages. When doing this with larger documents it becomes impractical to specify 1,3,5,7 and so on and then again 2,4,6,8 and so on when the pages has been turned around.

feature request. changing status to NEW.

no OOo/LibO/AOO version ever had such a feature in print menu.
changing version to "inherited from OOo"

could it be an easy hack?

From bug text I understand you might had not been aware there's "File/Print/Page Layout/Page Sides/Include" with:
+ "All pages"
    + "Back sides / Left pages (even numbers)"
    + "Front sides / Right pages (odd numbers)"
To add words odd/even is Bug 45201.

I'm not sure how this was confirmed at all. 

Other reading would ask for that option under "General/Range and Copies" but I don't find it acceptable for a lack of space. It's just tab away and it's not widely used. Anyway, can be another bug if doesn't exist already.
