Openoffice ignores 'copies' in printing dialog
Last modified: 2008-08-30 11:58:31 EDT
Description of problem:
When I try to print more than one copy of a document, only one is printed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a document
3. fill 'copies:' number>1
Does the latest update of openoffice.org-2.3.0-6.14.fc8 still exhibit this problem ?
ok, so I finally dragged my usb cable across to the F-8 testing box and it
"works for me"(tm) fine.
a) Can you try to print to file *as postscript* from the dialog and then load
that ps in evince and see if printing from evince with copies > 1 works or fails
b) And you could try toggling tools->options->openoffice.org->general->"use
openoffice.org dialogs" to use the older OOo printing dialog and see if that
makes a difference.
a) Printing to file doesn't make any difference.
b) I don't have such option in this menu. There are 'Update' and 'Settings
(Measurement Unit, Tab stops)' options only. Are you using the same version as
me? FC8, KDE environment, openoffice.org-core-2.3.0-6.14.fc8
So if you print to file as .ps and open it in evince and attempt to print
multiple copies you still only get one copy, right ?
If so then it sounds more like a generic issue than one specific to OOo itself.
Can you attach that sample output .ps here and I can see I can print multiple
copies of it here locally.
in relation to b), then I refer to under GNOME not KDE. Running under GNOME is
worth a shot just to double check that.
I was never able to reproduce this, as its such a basic thing to honour "copies" and there are no other reports, it must be specific to a particular unknown configuration of OOo or printer driver :-(
