Print window capture in png format, edited with GIMP.

This is a suggestion to improve the application:

1. - You can add the checkbox "Two-Sided Printing"?
2. - You can add the checkbox "Print in Grayscale"?

Here are two options I need in 95% of my impressions.
Thank you for your dedication.

I attached a screenshot of the Catalan version.

These options are typically already located on your printer’s Propietats…

true, but I think it would be a time-saver to have those options right in the LibO print dialog.

I will add that in Okular (, you have the option to "print odd pages" and "print even pages".

This is of great advantage and an excellent solution when you have a one-side printer but want to print two-sided. 

"Print Odd sides". Get the paper stack out, turn it around, and re-insert it into the feeder (correctly though, and it is sad that the semiotics of the embossed icon on the printer is not entirely informative about how to do that). Then "Print Even sides". 

Attaching a the screenshot of the okular dialog.

(I dream of a world where all this printer fiddling is not even in the application but a service provided by the GUI system, where it should be since, let's say, 1999 or so)
