Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 257521
Printing from Writer ignores requested page order
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
Writer (and maybe other OOo components; haven't tested) doesn't honour requested
page order when printing. If I print a multi-page document from Writer and
choose a page range of "2,1", it prints page 1 first, followed by page 2. If I
wanted it to do that, I would have specified "1,2" or "1-2". If I specify
"2,1", that's because I want page 2 printed first.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a multi-page document in Writer.
2. Choose "File"->"Print..."
3. Under "Print Pages", click "Range:" and type "2,1" in box.
4. Click "Print"
Page 1 is printed first, followed by page 2.
Page 2 should be printed first, followed by page 1.

Yeah, see http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=23862
The order that the pages are entered into the "what pages to print" area doesn't
actually affect the order that they are printed in, it just selects which ones
We do have the "Reverse" option which reverses the order that the entire set is
printed in, but that's it.
