Description Aram Agajanian 2010-05-26 17:15:20 EDT
Description of problem:
We have a multifuntion printer (Xerox WorkCentre Pro C2128) which can automatically staple print jobs.  When a print job in OpenOffice consists of multiple copies, these copies get stapled together.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Happens every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start any OpenOffice application.
2.  Open a multipage document which is to be stapled.
3.  Select Print... option in File menu.
4.  Click on the Properties... button in the Print dialog.
5.  Click on the Device tab in the "Properties of" dialog.
6.  In the list of Options, click on the Stapling option.
    A list of stapling options should appear under Current Value.
7.  Select the "1 Staple" option.
8.  Click the OK button in the "Properties of" dialog.
    The "Properties of" dialog should disappear.
9.  Change the Number of Copies in the Print dialog to 2.
10.  Click the OK button in the Print dialog.
Actual results:
All sheets output from the print job are stapled together.

Expected results:
The 2 copies printed out should be stapled individually.

Additional info:
This happens in OOo Writer, Calc, and Impress.

This does not happen in Gedit or Evince on the same computer.

Best way to fix all these is to use the gtk print dialog and get uniform results across apps for the edge-cases

This problem also occurs in Windows XP so I filed a bug report upstream.
