Description gibhenry 2003-08-09 03:56:06 UTC
Macintosh has provided a scaling factor (25-400%) for printing in Page Setup dialog boxes since 
1986.  This is a desirable feature for OOo.  I need it for an MS Word 97 document I routinely edit at 
double size, then print at 50%.  I'd be happy to provide a screen shot, but can't find a way to 
through this web interface.

moving to component gsl
Comment 3 philipp.lohmann 2003-08-15 16:21:09 UTC
pl->lho: This could probably be done by modifying the print dialogue
and building in support into VCL. I think the effort would stay within
reasonable limits.
Comment 4 lohmaier 2003-10-01 18:59:47 UTC
this feature would be nice for all platforms, so I set the fields to
ALL, setting status to new and target-milestone "not determined"

OK, here my request to be able to print at 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200,
300% and custom scale.

I believe many people will find it useful. 
I hope we can set the target

Comment 7 utomo99 2005-02-18 02:47:41 UTC
is there any news about this ? maybe a target please.
Comment 8 gibhenry 2005-02-18 03:32:09 UTC
I have switched to excluvsively using the Macintosh-native Java/Aqua implementation of OpenOffice, 
NeoOffice/J (no X11, no dylibs, etc.!), which uses the Mac's native fonts and printing...which of course 
already includes this capability.  Consequently, I'm no longer personally concerned with whether print 
scaling is built into OOo, although I would think users on other platforms might appreciate it.  In fact, I 
can't believe that it isn't a built-in feature of the other operating systems' printing architecture!

Bettina, please can you take care of this feature request in the same way as
with other RFEs too? I changed the target to OOo Later, as it is certainly too
late for OOo 2.0, and I would like to have a better effort estimation first.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
