Description 2006-05-24 12:48:03 UTC
The meaning of the checkbox for the option "use printer metrics for formatting"
is not consistent between Calc and Writer. In Calc the meaning actually is
something like "prefer text readability over design fidelity", whereas in Writer
they actually mean what they say.

I suggest to add rename the current Calc option "use printer metrics for
formatting" to something that better matches current semantic and to add another
option "use printer metrics for formatting" that means what it says: The
layout/design of the spreadsheet shouldl be independent of the printer and its
settings if this option is disabled.

changing target (it would be a larger change)

In issue 34140 piotrmajdak correctly noticed that the summary line of this issue
makes the hang look like a cosmetic problem only. For users that run into this
problem the target milestone doesn't seem appropriate...

When closing issue 34140 (with the same root cause as this one) the need to change the subject line of this one 
became obvious. The new subject line makes the seriousness of the problem more obvious.

Please reconsider the priority or the target milestone of this issue.

I'm using OOo 2.4.1 and I'm experiencing this same bug in OOo Draw and Impress.
