Description mikadams 2002-05-25 13:51:42 UTC
In Microsoft Word 97 I, and several colleages, make frequent use of the command 'Print current page' which I have set to a toolbar icon. It is a great time saver over going into the print menu when wishing to print a single page of a large document. I have replaced Word with OOo 1.0 both at home and at work. I cannot find this command in OOo 1.0 and suggest it as a possible feature improvement.

Hi Michael, I'm refreshing your issue. Remember that feature is to add a new functionality that does not yet exist. As you've said, you can to this, the OOo already handly it. So, it's is an enhancement. :) OBS: it may work also to the spreadsheet.

Another one: as you choose the "code" component, does it means you have developer skills -I think. The "UI" is for users without developer skills. Do you can send an patch to help BH (the owner)?

Adding a comment from the duplicate: "It would be really useful to have a "print current page" command which can be assigned to a toolbar button, rather than having to select File, Print, and then select Pages... ". by Lazaroid. For all the program, not only Writer, may be assigned a buton called "Prin current page", that stands at the side of the defaul "Print all pages".

From issue 59420 : "I have to admit it wasn't obvious to me that I could mimic the effect of the "Print Current Page" option in MS Word with the "Print Range" option in Writer, which defaults to the current page :-P. A poster gave me the heads-up about this in the forums. Maybe if I had been using Writer more often I would have caught onto that. And that is why I am submitting this as an issue: it is not obvious enough for me. There should be an in-your-face, although admittedly redundant, "Print Current Page" radio button selection in the Print dialog as well."
Comment 8 lazaroid 2006-08-24 09:54:28 UTC
The main thing for me would be to be able to assign a toolbar button which prints the current page directly without having to go through the Print dialog. It is possible to do this for the whole document but not for a single page. This is a really nice feature when you're editing a large document: you can make changes on a page and print it out as you go with much less hassle than File->Print->Pages->OK. Maybe it's relatively easy to do this with a macro but that seems like overkill to me!

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
