Description bob54 2006-07-15 21:52:09 UTC
Within Writer:
  1. Some typed text is selected.
  2. The print dialog is opened.
  3. While the user a good portion of the time intends to print the selection,
the print dialog defaults to "all", necessitating an extra, unnecessary step to
select "selection" on the dialog.

Absolutely agree. Priority seems to be too low.
Comment 4 ived_ct 2007-03-18 14:02:22 UTC
we absolutely agree to the problem.This is one of the inconvinient feature in 
Writer.It is not so in MS-word.The process of selecting "selection" in the 
dialog box is an extra,unnecessary step.

In the version I have (OpenOffice for Linux, version 2.0.4) there is not a
"Selected Text" selection in my print dialog.  Should this be a separate issue?

Aloha Sherzeq,
  I have a pc/win machine, but when you click on "Print," it opens the print
dialog box, and under "Print range" are three options: "All," "Pages," and
  The references to printing a selection is the last of these three options.
Aloha, Bob
