Description andrixnet 2013-11-06 14:01:05 UTC
When printing a brochure from Writer, the concept sheets must be added. 

Pages controls which pages of the document are rendered in brochure sequence, and this is ok. 

At this time, for printing on printers that do not have automatic both sides printing, I can say "reverse order" and it is applied correctly. 

However, if I want only sheet 1 to be printed (ie the cover on a different kind of paper), I cannot. If I say page 1, the only page 1 is rendered, resulting in an incomplete sheet. 

In layout however, there should be an additional input field that controls which sheets (with assembled brochure pages) are to be printed. 

(For inspiration, take a look at Acrobat Reader XI print dialog when selecting brochure)

I have created a testcase. This is a document of 8 pages. 

I have created a series of PDF files using the virtual printer PDF Creator, with the following settings: 

- test brochure - all pages.pdf
Writer-> print, layout: brochure, all pages
- test brochure - all pages, no brochure.pdf
Writer-> print, layout: normal, 1 page per sheet
- test brochure - back sides.pdf
Writer-> print, layout brochure, back sides only
- test brochure - front sides, reverse.pdf
Writer-> print, general: print in reverse page order, layout: brochure, front sides
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ up to here, in writer->print, pages = all pages

- test brochure - sheet 2 incorrect.pdf
Writer-> print, general: pages = 2, layout: brochure, all pages
* here I wanted to print sheet 2, not page 2, but in General tab is the only place where I can specify something like this.

Print screen of Acrobat Reader XI "print" dialog, when selecting booklet, and sheet 2, not page 2.
