Description memnoch 2003-02-25 19:42:45 UTC

I need to print pages exactly in the order pages 3,1,7,5. Ooo keeps printing
pages 1,3,5,7.

This occures while printing multiple pages on one sheet. For better
understanding, I produced file cards DIN A6 and am interested in printing them
on one sheet DIN A4. For the backside of the cards the order must be 4,2,8,6.

Has anybody a solution?

Greetings Raphael Matthias Krug
Comment 1 lohmaier 2003-03-31 19:50:24 UTC
original summary: "Printing multiple pages in wrong order"

Request: Pages should be printed in the same order as specified in the
print-dialog (print range).
Example: User enters "3,7,5,1" and hits OK
 -> printer should first print page 3, then page 7, 5 and finally 1

Currently the pages are printed in ascending order, no matter how the
page range is entered in the appropriate field (page 1 comes first,
then page 3, then 5 and finally 7)

There should probably be aconfirmation request like "Do you want to
print the pages in the order specified?" [yes] [no] when the user did
enter a non ascending sequence...

reassigning & confirming

hi lutz, 
looks like an RFE, please assign to someone who can evaluate that
Comment 5 lutz.hoeger 2003-04-10 11:15:26 UTC
Hi Bettina, please evaluate. Thanks! Lutz.
Comment 6 bettina.haberer 2003-11-27 16:19:40 UTC
Currently it is not possible to consider the print order of several
pages, when they are arranged within one page. I suppose to expand the
'Print Options' dialog with the ability to assign the print order of
the pages. Hello Andreas, please give approval for this evaluated OO.o
2.0 flagged issue. 
If you confirm with the target OO.o 2.0, then please keep it on your
owner (or the owner of the concerning developer) for implementation.
In case you want this issue for 'OOo Later', then please reset the
target milestone. If you decline the issue finally, please set the
resolution to 'Wontfix' (but do not close). In case of 'OOo Later' or
'Wontfix' please reset it on Bettina's owner. Thank you.

The idea is not too bad. But I don't see this for the OOo2.0 because we've a lot
of other things to do first.
Comment 8 petevine 2004-02-16 16:03:09 UTC
Just wanted to file this issue myself. I think more attention should be paid to
its resolution. 
Comment 9 andreas.martens 2005-03-09 08:27:08 UTC
Something I want to mention:
For those who need a special print order to print brochures we already have the
according print option "brochure". Please read the online help regarding this
print option. Maybe that's more efficient than typing a print order like 4,1,2,3...

I would really like to see this implemented. I needed to print multiple pages
per sheet today (front and back) and in the end I had to resort to printing to
PDF (with PDFCreator) and then reprinting to PDF from Adobe Reader, so that I
could finally print what I needed on paper.

cd: Added myself and mav to CC. I want to find out what must be done to fulfill
this feature request. Due to the high vote count I set this request to 3.x but
cannot promise anything, due to limited resources and other high priority tasks.
Comment 16 carsten.driesner 2009-04-22 12:05:26 UTC
cd: So after some discussions with PL from the gsl team it looks like that this
cannot be done in the generic code part. That means this is a task which must be
implemented by every application module. It would make sense to add this feature
while doing the implementation for i92516.

might it be useful to set priority to p3 or so (looking at votes)?

cd: Set dependency on master issue for CWS printerpullpages.
Comment 24 philipp.lohmann 2010-06-16 17:42:51 UTC
this works in 3.3 in writer since the StringRangeEnumerator is used instead of
the old MultiSelection. Changes need to be made in draw/impress and calc yet.
Comment 25 philipp.lohmann 2010-06-23 10:13:18 UTC
We should eventually do this. Setting to a real owner instead of requirements.
