Description dionne.aleman 2014-05-30 20:04:29 UTC
Regardless of the checkbox selection in Preferences->OpenOffice->General->Print dialogs to "Use OpenOffice dialogs", only the OpenOffice print dialog appears. There is no way to use the operating system's print dialog.

This is no bug as the option is only for opening and saving files. The print dialog is always from OpenOffice. Please see the help text for this option:

Open/Save dialogs

Use dialogs

Specifies whether dialogs are used to open and save documents. Otherwise the dialogs of the operating system are used.
The dialogs for opening and saving documents are described in Help.

OpenOffice print dialog is not the OS print dialog

As shown in the attached screenshot, the print dialog in OpenOffice (background) is not the OS print dialog. The preferences menu clearly shows an option to use the OpenOffice print dialog (foreground). This option is unchecked, but the print dialog is not the OR print dialog.

OK, seems Mac is special.
