Description bob_nelson 2007-12-05 16:01:43 UTC
If my print preview shows two pages and I request that page two be printed, any
sane person would expect that page two is printed.

With the current default for "Print only selected sheets", nothing is printed.

This violates the Principle of Least Surprise

The reasons this default is causing so many problems are:

1. The default for print only selected sheets is clearly visible in the Excel
print menu, so it doesn't surprise as much as OpenOffice does.
2. When  "Print only selected sheets" is selected, Print Preview in OpenOffice
should only show the selected sheet - Excel already does this, again, minimizing

This is covered by Issue 82071 and therefore a duplicate.
