Description christoph 2009-11-12 22:23:29 UTC
In the new printer dialog, the user is able to enter page numbers for the print
preview (e.g. entering 25 directly shows the 25th page of the printout).

Issue: Some people might use Return or Enter to confirm the entered number, but
this does not change the print preview, it directly executes printing. This
should be avoided, since the likeliness of mistakes is high.

Rationale: This is different to other elements in the print dialog, e.g. the
manual print ranges definition. Since the print preview might be used to look
what pages to print, pressing Enter is - from the user's point-of-view - a
disaster, because print jobs (especially large ones) cannot be sufficiently
aborted (think of network printers in businesses). It is also costly, so our
product may get blamed...

Proposal: Ignore Return/Enter when the focus is in the number field of the print

@es: Is that okay from the accessibility point-of-view?

+2! :)
I completely agree.

That's a IMHO bad idea. Enter confirms every dialog, so it should do here. If
the user "accidentally" hits Enter, well, he won't anymore after the third time.

Is anybody able to convince me why this would be a good idea ? I'd like to close
it else.
