Description christoph 2009-11-11 21:33:02 UTC
Currently the print preview does only show the currently manually selected page
(behavior according specification).

Proposal: If the user manually enters page numbers in the field "Pages" /
"Slides" (Tab General), then the last entered page/slide should be automatically
shown in the print preview. No changes for the other options for "Range and Copies"

Rationale: If the user wants to print certain pages, he may just know how the
pages look like. Then he would be able to manually select the pages in the print
preview, but it would be even more convenient to automatically update the print
preview during typing. Mistakes can be easily identified by the user.

Open Points: I'm unsure of the moment if the print preview should be also
updated when moving the cursor through the Pages field. Then, the update may be
perceived as annoying.

And why the last page, not the first ?

Hi PL! To make it clear, this is about the "last entered page number", not the
"last page number". The user will be able to see the pages he is composing right
in the print preview.

Example: A student wants to review some pages of his essay - namely the pages
between introduction and summary. He enters the page number in the field "Pages"
and instantly sees if the page fits (e.g. 6). Then he enters "-" (the print
preview is kept) and then he enters the expected last page (e.g. 72). Even here,
is is able to check whether this is correct. If not, he may easily correct it
(e.g. 71).

Basically, it is "just" a great simplification to check manually entered page
ranges :-)
