Description rjvbertin 2003-06-30 20:08:40 UTC
Is there a reason the max. page size in Impress is set to 1.20m x 1.20m (at 
least in 1.0.3)? Is there any reason at all for having an upper limit?
If so, a work-around could of course be to have a scale option for printing, as 
on MacOS pre-OSX...

I'm sorry, but this *is* an issue I'm having. Not a bug in itself, but an issue. I have not yet been able to try the 1.1RC4. But this upper page size limit has been in place since StarOffice 5.1a (and probably before), so if *you guys* are not aware of it having been lifted I do not see any reason to expect a change in RC4.

Yes, 1.2m x 1.2m allows for A0 posters, but quite often one would like to make larger ones.

You want a suggestion? OK, here's a few. 1) Accept any page size. 2) Set a maximum 10x larger, i.e. 12m x 12m. 3) In the print dialog or the print settings dialog, provide a field to set a scale other than 100%.

a friend asked me to search for issues connected to setting the maximum size of
a page. He is interrested in using OOWriter or OODraw to create a scientific
poster for a presentation (the poster size would be 100*200 cm). 
The problem is, that the page width and/or height can not be increased over
119*119 cm. This has been stated by several other people in issue #4219.

My confusion is due to the fact, that I found several issues connected to this
problem, obviously unaware of the existance of the other issues. Here are the
numbers of issues that I came along in my search (there might be even more): 

#4129, #9982, #16260, #16293, #25791 

(my search strings were: "page width" and "page size")

What even confuses me more is the fact, that issue #16293 claims to have solved
this problem, but still people keep searching for the answer in the other
issues. (Or havn't even started yet.)
And, I don't know in which release this solution will be integrated, or whether
this "solution" really solves the stated problems in all other issues.

Maybe, this mail may help to sort and bundle the activities on the

PS: I will post this mail to each of the issues stated above.
