'print to file' makes single-copy-only file
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
When printing a document 'to file' as PostScript, I get this in the output:
/#copies 1 def
<< /NumCopies null /Policies << /NumCopies 1 >> >> setpagedevice
This means that when I print the file like 'lp -n50 output.ps' I only get one copy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Print to file as PostScript
2.lp -n2 output.ps
One copy printed.
Do you not find that you get "/#copies 2 when you untick Collate when printing
to file, and with Collate ticked a copies 1 document with the page manually

several copies of *that file*.
In other words, perhaps 'print to file' should handle several-copies and
single-copy in different ways, with only several-copies setting the number of
With single-copy I expect the PostScript to leave the number of copies alone so
that I can print multiple copies later.
ah the reverse of the problem I invented for myself, yeah that might work.
Problem isn't specific to us or to the gtk print dialog. Let's run it by upstream
accepted, committed to the relevant usual suspects
I believe 2.0.4-5.5.10 does the right thing now, if not feel free to reopen
