This is the current scene: Edit a template, without typing anything into the document, go straight to File-Printer Settings-Properties, do some changes there. Click Ok all the way and go back to the document. The save icon is still disabled, so is File-save. If the editing template is closed at this point, the changes in the printer properties are not saved with the template. To save the printer properties one has to enter a character and delete it for the save function to be enabled. Save the editing template now and the changes in the printer properties is now saved with the template. The save function should be enabled if changes is made to the printer properties.

Reassigned to HI. Pls evaluate wether this is a bug or an RFE.

To clarify, you do not change the printer, only the settings from current printer like you could adjust at the system. Please confirm. The properties dialog of the printer are taken from the system und doesn't belong to OOo. Therefore save button keeps disabled.

But in my experience, OOo does carry along the Printer properties with its documents, as long as the properties are accessed or changed from OOo-File-Printer Settings-Properties.

I checked with "2.0.2 German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and HP officejet 6110 (Driver "HP_WebRelease") and and can confirm the problem. This is not a special WRITER or tempate problem. Steps to reproduce the problem: 1. Open any existing WRITER document 2. Menu "File - Printer Settings" 3. Select 'Properties', change Paper format and output from 'colour' to 'grey scale' confirm all changes with <OK> expected: 'Save button' and 'undo button' should appear actual: 'Save button' and 'undo button' do not appear, and you can close document without saving When I save the documet after step 3 under a new name, close and reopen it, the printer settings will be changed as expected.

I have a very similar situation, except that (a) I am running non-product build of DEV300_m88. (b) I am running on Linux. (c) The program sets the "changed flag" (i.e., enables Save icon in the toolbar and menu option File > Save) the *first* time in the life of a document that you change a setting through File > Printer Settings > Properties > Paper. Note that "life of the document" here spans the process of closing and opening the document. It seems very strange to me that the program should behave differently the first time the user changes the printer settings, and Niklas Nebel suggests <http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=dev&msgNo=28004> that the difference "sounds like an unintended side effect of creating the SfxPrinter on demand". I suggest that this issue should be assigned type DEFECT. My feeling is that the correct behaviour is to always set the "changed flag" when the user changes the Printer Settings, but I have not yet found any specification saying so.
