HI Kracked_P_P

As to my statement, here is a screenshot of the Windows version of LO indicating the option to check "Use LiberOffice dialogues" under "General". I'll look under my Linux (dual boot) to see what you are referring to. You should see these screenshot, but it will be stripped when forwarded onto the global mail.

Nothing under the "Print"  section

Last time I checked, Windows version did not have the --- "Use LibreOffice dialogs" in the "Print dialogs" section.

I do not think the Print dialogs would be, or should be, listed under open/save dialogs section. That would not make sense. Are you saying the "print dialogs" check box is actually listed in that section of the "General" dialog box?

Well, I have not installed 4.1 yet, but the "Print dialogs" option was shown on the DEB 64-bit version [Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 installed] and not on the Windows version [Win7 professional and home premium installed]

When I was having all my issues with my printer[s] not duplexing correctly, it seemed that most of the people who tried to help were Windows users. None of the even suggested the "print dialog" check/uncheck option. After a few weeks, I just started experimenting and found that checking the "print dialogs" option would make the Epson Artisan 810 printer duplex correctly. The HP Laserjet 2300dn duplexing worked either way. Now that I have a Cannon MG6220 to replace the Epson, I have not unchecked that box to see if the duplexing still worked.

Hi Kracked_P_P

One correction, your last statement, the option to check "Use LiberOffice dialogues" is available for Windows users under the same "Tools / Options / LibreOffice / General". In this part of the "General" settings it's under the heading "Open/Save dialogues".

Hello list

On a Debian like system (Mint 14), my newly installed 32-bit LibO-4.1. is creating a bit of problems for me. This latest issue is trying to print specific pages within a Writer document: the print dialog box does not allow editing the specific pages text box. In order to make this work - i.e. to select the pages I wanted - I closed LibO4.1. and re-opened it, then it worked.

Anybody else experienced this?

I've had two relatively minor issues with Writer LibO-4.1 (password-related and the page selection for printing mentioned here) which don't really inspire confidence as these are features that have been preserved since the OOo days ... so not at all sure why they don't work as expected with the 4.1 release.

Anyway, will continue to test 4.1 for a while, but am inclined to roll back to 4.0.4 for doing work at this point.


I do not use Mint due to printer issues. The biggest one wasthatit would not recognizeor even find it on my network my main network color printer that Ubuntu has not problems finding/using. But it would see it via a USB cable. I had other printer/driver issues for it to print "properly" on the other printers on my network.

You are running 32-bit Mint 14?  Mate or Cinnamon desktop?
You removed the previously installed version of LO, correct?

Did you have any problems with 4.0.4 printing page selections?

In Tools / Options / LibreOffice / General
have you checked "Use LibreOffice dialogs" in the "Print dialogs" section?

Check it if not. If already checked [which I used for Ubuntu 12.04LTS] then un-check it. See if that changes anything. This option does not show up with the Windows users, so they would not know this. I had to check it to get one of my printers to duplex properly. I am told others need to have it unchecked for their printer[s].
