Description bukobuko 2006-10-06 13:37:53 UTC
This is under Tools - Options - Calc - Print. The "Print only
selected sheets" should be chedcked on by default, because of
behavior-compatibility with MS Excel.

Imagine a first-time OOo Calc user, who opens an Excel file, goes to a Sheet he
wants to print, clicks the Print button on on the toolbar, and then he finds 100
uneeded papers on the printer, because Calc printed all sheets. (beacuse the
"Print only selected sheets" is off by default). After such a bad surprise, user
may decide to uninstall OOo - he don't want to meet such a bad surprises anymore.

I am not sure if this setting is the same in 2.0.4 (I could install 2.0.4, but
Windows could remember settings of 2.0.2).

Well, I understand this request leads to a "philosophical question" (which
setting is better for most users in fact), or even flame-war, and could be also
a subject of online-voting. 
Personally, I don't like programs that mimic MS products too closely. I like
programs, that behave differently AND better that MS products. But (in my
opinion): this "Print all sheets" default behavior is different and worse.

I faced a similar problem.
I don't consider this a important(P3)issue,but, i agree with "bukobuko".This
characteristic affects amateur users. 

I checked the "Print only Selected sheets" checkbox in
tools->Options-> Calc

These settings were saved by windows and it worked fine from the next print attempt.
