Description Martin Jürgens 2008-03-02 13:01:54 EST
Description of problem:

Imagine you are a teacher and write a class test which is 1 page long. Now, you
want to print it for your students and as they are young and have good eyes, you
want to put two class tests on a sheet.

The current way to do it is this way: You copy the class test and paste in on
another page. After, you select "two pages per sheet" and select the amount of
copies to be students / 2 which is not the best and easiest solution.

I don't understand what you are looking for?  Printing two documents on the same
page?  That would be an application level feature.  The print infrastructure
just prints what the application sends to it and only abstracts on the page and
data stream level.  It has no idea what a document is.  The applications would
have to stream both documents as if they were one.  

Really what you want is the ability for your applications to load one document
into another document so you can skip the copy and paste part which can be error
prone.  This is also very specialized so having someone write a standalone
utility that could load a number of pdf's and print them out in a number of
different configurations would give you the most flexibility without feature
bloating an application.  I'd call it ditto after the old precursors to the copy
machines ;-)

In any case OO can already load one document into another.  Just go to the
insert menu and select "file..." I don't think an application would implement
anything more than that.

The description in the first paragraph makes my report useless :) Thanks for
your clarification.

can I close this then or do you want to reassign it to another component?
