Description andre1234567890 2009-01-28 11:22:26 UTC
Mac applications should allow the print dialog to be displayed when no printer
is installed so that applications can print to PDF. If no printer is installed
OOo 3.0 on Mac will display an error dialog saying no printer is installed and
then show a different print dialog. Printing to PDF through the standard Mac
print dialog can produce better results than the PDF export feature.

I can confirm this. I just tested iWork and other applications and they display
Mac OS X print dialog without selected printer. Next thing is, that even if you
don't have printer installed, printer dialog checks for printers around upon
startup (via Bonjour) and offers you these printers too. If not found, you can
still print to PDF.

It's not probably DEFECT, but ENHANCEMENT.
