Description danweis 2004-01-13 23:30:37 UTC
When printing to a Panasonic DP-2000 printer, there is no match between the OOo
printer settings and the DP-2000's printer settings WRT 11x17 paper. The
Panasonic calls 11x17 paper "Ledger". In the OOo printer settings, the closest
paper size is called "Tabloid". I even tried to set a custom size of 11x17. When
I send the file, nothing prints and the printer reports a "Paper size mismatch".
Shouldn't OOo take the paper sizes from the printer instead of using it's own

Hi Stephan,

as this affects all Apps I've set the component to framework and assigned it to
you, as I think it goes under your responsibilities.

Comment 5 dirk.voelzke 2004-10-28 10:17:06 UTC
The vcl printer is never asked about the available paper formats, this can be
done with GetPaperInfo() / GetPaperInfoCount().
Comment 6 pb 2004-10-29 07:08:23 UTC
pb: accepted.
Comment 7 pb 2004-11-09 09:00:48 UTC
pb: too much effort to change now from static paper infos to the printer
paperinfos. So we will running out of time -> OO Later.

pb -> bh: please takeover, because this is an enhancement: Should we use our own
paperinfos or use the printer paperinfos?

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