Description Unknown 2003-08-20 21:19:11 UTC
I'll be very thankfull to you, if you add in the next edition, mirror printing 
(or flip orizontal) in the text writer.
The option of mirror printing can add in the new edition of your excellent 
program, in the sector of "export to PDF". The program pdf995 already have this 
Additionally, if you can, you can add in the printing session something that 
Acrobat Reader has: The printing of every sector of the page that the user 
want. So, a page with size 35X50 cm can print in 4 pieces in an A4 printer.
Than you.

The second suggestion maybe is more useful for people. I dont know it
is already exist or not
Comment 3 lohmaier 2003-09-17 19:29:32 UTC
feature 1) (mirrored printing) can be useful for creating
overhead-transparencies or "stickers"...

taken care easily

Issue 13483 was already created for mirror effect for pdf export. But 
was not accepted yet.

Which issue should be closed ? Issue 13483 or Issue 18462 (this one) ?
Comment 6 lcn 2003-10-10 02:21:07 UTC
There are two wishes in this issue.
There is already the issue 13483 for "mirror printing for PDF export".

So, for this issue, the content of Summary should be changed 
into "partial printing".

If accepted, don't forget to set to NEW the issue 13483.

I suggest keeping this one since already confirmed. But I reassign to
gsl (and set QA-contact accordingly but keep assigned-to) since this
feature will be useful for the other components as well (printing and
pdf-export is part of gsl-project)... And I set the target milestone
back to not determined since not set by the developers....
Thank you for finding that dupe..

Thank you very much for your interest. I believe that if OpenOffice 
Writer programmers can add partial printing with mirror printing -we 
can call these together "dtp printing"- that's the best for them who 
want to print monochrome or two colors newspaper pages. The mirror 
printing in pdf export is the best for them who want professional 
full color printing with separations.
Forgive me for my bad English).

I still hope to see the feature of printing writer documents horizontally
flipped. It is needed to print on transparent sheets (for overhead projectors)
with inkjet printers. So the unprinted side can point upwards, can get marked
with non-permanent markers and washed off for next use.

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