Description hierogrammate 2005-12-15 22:06:33 UTC
I have to admit it wasn't obvious to me that I could mimic the effect of the
"Print Current Page" option in MS Word with the "Print Range" option in Writer,
which defaults to the current page :-P. A poster gave me the heads-up about this
in the forums. Maybe if I had been using Writer more often I would have caught
onto that. 

And that is why I am submitting this as an issue: it is not obvious enough for
me.  There should be an in-your-face, although admittedly redundant, "Print
Current Page" radio button selection in the Print dialog as well. 

Added levels of redundancy can only help Writer to mold itself to different user
styles--- especially to that horde of users who will never touch a tech forum
and see their computers as appliances that auto-update themselves, and where
tweaks in Options should be minimal or inexistant for common chores, like
writing a letter...

If that is not possible, at least add a new entry in Help (or addition to the
Print section in Help). I couldn't find any reference on how to print just the
current page in the Help window... that would have saved me the trip to the
forums :)
