Description bwiese 2004-03-15 18:20:03 UTC
When using the export to PDF feature in 1.1.0 on Debian
GNU/Linux, with special Fields in use... the PDF output is not what the printed
output would be.  The PDF export displays the text of the Fields (page number,
number of pages/statistics) as displayed on the screen (ctrl+f9) whether that be
the Field names or values.

Feature, or a bug... I considered it a bug when my PDF resume printed out with
"Page numbers of Statistics" at the bottom of every page instead of "1 of 4",
simply because I had the Fields shown (ctrl+f9) from the View menu.  I was just
glad that by changing the selection of that, the export to PDF gives me the
document I wanted.

pl->ama: The poster did not state what application did that, i guess it's writer
by default.

Hello Brian,

thank you for using and supporting OpenOffice.Org!

1) behaviour confirmed with 1.1.1rc3 Win98 SE

2) changing issue type from defect to enhancement



When having [View -> Fields] checked, Writer should prompt user also when
exporting to PDF, if he wants to have the field-names or their values printed
like it does for normal printing.

We're planning to impove the PFD export for OOo2.0, so this issue could be
solved but I set the priority to 4.

No time for this kind of issue for OO 2.0 -> OO later
