Description sviatoslav 2014-04-03 17:58:37 UTC
Created attachment 96865 [details]
Zip file containing 2 sample documents on which the issue is demonstrated

Problem description: 
Print range defined in 1 tab is not saved of file save.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download attached zip file and extract the 2 files into the same folder.

2. Open FS.ods

3. Say "Yes" to update links (there should not be any errors)

4. Go to tab "IS"

5. Select range A1:D33

6. Click Format >> Print Ranges >> Define

7. Save the file and exit the application

8. Re-open FS.ods and go to tab "IS"

9. Click File >> Page Preview

Current behavior:
The preview page shows nothing because the ranges was not saved (or so it appears). Also, actually printing this tab does not print anything (nothing is sent to printer). Tab "BS" however, seemed to have worked when I first tried it, so this is only visible on tab "IS". Breaking the link and then defining the range and saving works perfectly, so it must be related to the sheet being linked to another sheet.

Expected behavior:
The defined range in step 6 above should have been saved and when the file re-opened, it should have been defined and page preview should show the content of the range.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Reproduced on new Calc documents (same LibO version and OS).

Most likely this is a duplicate of bug 51022.
It's been more than 2 years since the bug was reported, but no action taken thus far.

Only the last sheet is affected.
As a work-around, you can insert a blank sheet to the end.

Dear sviatoslav,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
