Description skaggarwal 2003-11-23 17:33:11 UTC
I am using OO 1.1.0. Although page preview is available for the print ranges
defined. However, when I select the ranges manually, through
File-Print-Selection, there is no option to see the page preview so that it can
be seen how the page will look like and whether it needs any modification.

I also feel like this is a must have feature for OOo.

Dear developers,
what is your take on this issue? Is it difficult to implement or redundant?
Comment 5 guido.pinkernell 2007-01-07 20:17:44 UTC
I'd like to support this RFE. Also, I change platform specification from Windows
XP to all OS, as this clearly affects on all operating systems.

I have traced all the various queries related to this issue and hope that this
is the correct one to add my vote to.

Can the "Version" number be updated and a "Target milestone" set to indicate
that this is a current, outstanding issue?

In OOo 2.2.0 Page Preview shows all sheets, even when "Print only selected
sheets" is enabled in: Tools > Options > Calc > Print

This is confusing for all users and creates a particularly bad impression for
new end-users who are switching (or being switched) from Excel.

Hi Niklas, these RFEs are in your ownership.

This issue is important and listed on the quarterly review for Calc:
Therefore adjusting target to 3.x.

Please give more attention to this request.

Page Preview exactly as it will be printed is the most wanted feature requested
by me and my users.
In my company I "upgraded!!" several work posts from Office to OpenOffice. 

In my experience this issue in Calc is the biggest drawback comparing to Excel.
Followed by copy paste merged cells issue.

Continue this great work,
Portugal, vmendes

I also request that attention be given to this issue.  Its a real paperwaster 
when selected cells can't be previewed.  Anyone here have unused votes, pls put 
them into this issue.  Thanks!
Comment 15 niklas.nebel 2010-10-25 17:59:59 UTC
Have you seen the small preview in the new print dialog of 3.3 Beta? That might
already solve some of the problems.
Comment 16 fafehr 2010-10-26 23:15:51 UTC
Thanks nn.  That already helps somewhat.  But I've discovered a defect with 
that, and I opened a new issue.  See

Switching back to Excel because of this issue.
Comment 18 cjdirect1-openoffice 2013-03-18 12:32:07 UTC
If I am editing on a worksheet and click on "Page Preview" I expect to see the sheet I am editing. Same for printing. I see this is a long running issue with Open Office, so unlikely to be fixed soon? Sadly I am switching back to Excel 2000
Comment 19 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-04-16 16:47:31 UTC
This one is a DUP of "Issue 5804 - Add print preview function to print dialog ".

Print Preview always worked fine for selected cell range.

If there are remaining problems with Print Preview or Page Preview please submit separate Bug reports.
