Hello, the old print dialog (e.g. with OOo 3.2) had a very convenient feature: It was possible to choose and change the numbers of copies with the keyboard, all I did, was 1. Ctrl-P 2. Cursor-UP multiple times to increase the number of copies 3. hit ENTER to start printing. In a business environment, this was much faster than always using the mouse. Please port this behaviour to the new print dialog UI. regards Claas

Ok, currently it is: 1. Ctrl-P 2. N 3. Cursor-UP multiple times to increase the number of copies 4. hit ENTER to start printing. But yes, it is definitely a valid enhancement.
Comment 3 philipp.lohmann 2011-04-06 15:06:54 UTC
I don't think this is practical. Given that the print dialog always opens on the last visible tab page (which was an explicit design decision at the time of implementation of the new UI), the copy count field often is not even visible since another tab page is active. OTOH the change is small fries, so if UX decides we want the initial focus on the copy count field instead of the printer listbox on the general tab page, then so be it. Let's ask them.

Currently the default focus is set to the 'Print' button which is also the default button in this dialog. Normally the focus is set to a control on the dialog area, most times on the first or the most frequently used one. Therefore I propose to set the default focus for the 'General' tab on the 'Number of copies' field, like in OOo 3.2. This was an intended change some years ago, because it is the most frequently used control in that dialog and users are used to it from competition. All other tabs should focus the first control by default. Most times the user will not use the additional tabs, so the 'General' tab would be the default one anyway.
Comment 5 philipp.lohmann 2011-04-07 10:48:07 UTC
Whatever. Fixed in CWS vcl122; if the general tabpage comes up when the dialog pops up, the focus will be set to the copycount field.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity". For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
Comment 7 Li Feng Wang 2012-06-21 01:52:48 UTC
below list is OK with build r1351567(build bot) 1. Cursor-UP multiple times to increase the number of copies 2. hit ENTER to start printing.

(In reply to comment #7) > below list is OK with build r1351567(build bot) > 1. Cursor-UP multiple times to increase the number of copies > 2. hit ENTER to start printing. This isn't fixed. The CWS was never integrated. - New Writer document - File - Print - Choose the General tab - the focus in on the Print button - print, close the dialog - open the dialog again, the dialog opens in the last selected tab - the focus is on the Print button, not in the Number of copies.

Reopening. The fix is in the CWS vcl122, on the old mercurial repository: http://hg.services.openoffice.org/cws/vcl122/rev/6ddefb5f284f
