sample for changing the settings

Changing the printer between duplex and not duplex should insert/remove automatic blank pages. Writer does not regcognize the settings via script of 
- document.settings.PrintEmptyPages
- configuration.ConfigurationUpdateAccess.EmptyPages (Printer)
- Mailmerge.PrintOptions.DuplexMode [-> Exception]

This only works by manual changing the checkbox in the 
- settings - writer - print or 
- print - OpenOffice Writer

i think, i can confirm this problem:

starting mailmerge via file -> print will work as described above

but if one tries to set print options with "oMailMerge.PrintOptions = printProps()"
an exception is thrown:
Message: Property Type mismatch or property not set: PrintOptions."

see for example
