Description Thibault Molleman 2015-11-17 22:01:34 UTC

My mom has been using Microsoft Works (yea, that's even before Office) for a while now and is finally switching to something else (LibreOffice).

She finds it annoying that she has to press the Synchronize Labels button when she wants all her Labels to be synchronized. The way it worked in Works was as follows: https://youtu.be/-hvfB6wiPlg
You can select the mode of making the labels. If select the 2nd mode it will show one label in white and the rest is gray and not editable. When you edit the first label nothing happens until you click on print button and it duplicates the label to all other labels in the print preview.

Maybe something similar could be added to LibreOffice? 


BTW I'm not actually running Win XP. It was a virtual machine running on Win10

UX: we need your guru advice.

Guess this question is rather up to the devs. The labels are likely fields and therefore have to get synchronized/updated before printing - or when the user wants to get a preview.

Set importance to enhancement.
