Description cheryl.badger.76 2016-03-13 20:51:11 UTC
I am trying to print the column headers on each page of my spreadsheet.  I followed these instructions:

Choose Format > Print Ranges > Edit. Click in the dropdown by the Rows to Repeat and select User-Defined.  

However when I click the dropdown I see User-defined, but the option will not stick when I select it.   I am never able to add my range.

Your bug report is being closed as NOT_AN_ISSUE due to a lack of information which is needed in order to accurately reproduce and confirm the problem. We need the following information:

a) Provide a step-by-step procedure to reproduce (the simpler will be the better)

b) Provide any test case(s) which will help us confirm the problem (like a sample document)

c) Provide screenshots of the problem if you think it might help

Once all of this is done, please set the bug back to UNCONFIRMED and we will attempt to reproduce the issue.

I followed simply the description in comment 0. I can confirm the behaviour under Linux/Ubuntu 64.

> Choose Format > Print Ranges > Edit. Click in the dropdown by the Rows to Repeat and select User-Defined.

When one click at the entry "- user-defined -" the listbox goes back to "- none -".

Workaround: To select the entry "- user-defined -" use the scrollwheel or the cursor keys.

Maybe the actual behaviour needs a better documentation. But it confuses the user.

There is no need to select "- user-defined -" at first.

@OP: Choose Format > Print Ranges > Edit. Then click into the inputbox and select cells from the desired row(s). Now the listbox changes automatically to "- user-defined -".
