Description fabienst 2003-09-11 13:49:16 UTC
Open file to mail-merge. 
Press F4 to open datasource viewer 
click Mail-merge button 
choose to output to printer and select individual jobs. 
Click OK, select a printer (I chose Generic Printer with Linux) and choose to 
print to file. 
Enter the name of the file to print to 
After printing you will notice that there is only 1 one file generated 
containing only the last page. 
I would have liked different files to be generated so a not to lose each job 
(each page) before the last. Indeed each intermediate page between the first 
and the last job are overwritten.

lbc -> bh: I think this problem is in the print-to-file driver, not the mailmerge.

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

One resulting PDF despite checking "Create single print jobs for collated output" under Print - Options.
