Description svenl 2003-11-10 19:58:19 UTC

I think it was good to have a option to set the default pagesize for the
printingdialog in the options for the printing, too.
For example I use and whant use the english version of openoffice but I whant to
change the default size of the paper to pring in the printingdialog.
I know at the moment we set that with the english and german version, but we
don't have a option to change the default in the englisch version for example to
the german defaults.
I hope we can integrate that!   :)

cp->mmp: you can already change the defaults in spadmin. Moving
spadmin functionality into the office is highly desirable IMHO since
very few users ever find the spadmin application
Comment 2 svenl 2003-11-11 16:17:43 UTC
So we can change this feature request to move it from spadmin into 
the optiondialog from the office itself.   :) 
Thanks for the answer where I can find the option in the existing

I think there should also be a way (or at least an easier way, because I can't
find it) to set the default page size for my new documents. I don't think I has
anything to do with spadmin. It is rather a page style issue.

Please forgive me if it is the inappropriate place for this comment.

Come on people!! this thing with default page size should be pretty simple to
add.. i swear any time i open a new document!! (and i think any european is
cursing and swearing just because the default is letter and not A4! )

alternatively ooffice can just read /etc/papersize ... 

is this feature so hard to implement?
