Description tora3 2006-11-08 11:57:38 UTC
Motivations and User Scenario:
Within a computer-network-connected enterprise, when a recipient of a 
document file clicks on a print button in the tool bar, her printer in 
her department does not work. However, the sender's printer in his 
department mysteriously starts to make a handout of the document that 
he sent to her as an attachment of e-mail a few minutes ago. Sometimes, 
he gets multiple sets of handout because she clicks the button repeatedly 
until she gets her handout from her printer.

If a user owns several types of printers, the current behavior sometimes 
becomes very useful. E.g. this document should be printed with a color 
ink-jet printer; that should be with a monochrome laser printer; like that.

Printer settings, especially a name of the printer that is previously used 
by someone else, might not need to be loaded when a document file is opened 
by another person.

One of Possible Solutions:
Change the default value of an entry "Load user-specific settings with 
the document" from enabled to disabled in the dialog of Tools - Options - 
Load/Save - General.

Integration of this and 56352 in the same time would be nice to decide which
printer for one or each time.
