Description GUTH Christophe 2015-10-30 12:43:13 UTC

I work on calc document with multiple sheets. To print, i sometimes need to select 2 or 3 sheets and print them at once (for page numbering). But if i forgot to deselect the sheets and if i modify a cell, I lose the content of the cell on the other sheets (not only the active sheet).

My idea was to put a macro on the OnPrint event of the document, but this event is called before LibreOffice starts actually the print job. If i change the selected sheets at this time, I can't be sure of the result.

The best way would be to start the macro on key press (but there is no event related to this), or to start the macro after printing (to automaticaly deselect the selected sheets after printing), but there is no event OnPrintEnd.

Is there a way to add such event ?
