Hi Everyone,

at the moment, I have taken a look only on mailing list, but I have not seen nothing relating. I am speaking about the difference in Calc between pdf exporting a multi-sheet ods document (a spreadsheet document) and printing it in a pdf printer (software printer).

The file -> print dialog change in Calc with respect to Writer, Impress, Draw, ... and is able to choose among selected sheets, cells or all and then all pages or only some of them. When you pdf export there are not that useful capabilities...

Or am I loosing something?

What is the problem? Native pdf export my maintain some formatting or features of the source document (like URL, PDF Forms, ...) that you may loose also cutting a pdf.

What do you think about? Is there some extensions to do this and/or are we planning to integrate something like this in the Calc pdf export dialog?

Have All a sunny day,


What version of LibreOffice are you using?
That way we will know if the features you are asking about is already part of a more current version.

What is you OS?  Windows, Linux, IOS?

What software printer do you use?

For me, I use doPDF for Windows and CUPS-PDF on Ubuntu Linux [14.04 - 15.10]. I have not gone through as much as you have with creating PDF files that have thing like fillable forms and other possibilities.

I tend to use PDF files when I use my printers in borderless paper sizes, since LO's printer options do not have that option[s]. Recently, I upgraded to 5.0.5 on this Ubuntu 15.10 laptop. I have not tried 5.1.x yet to see if the features in the printing properties are no longer unusable. Since this problem started several versions ago, I wonder what is needed to return them to being usable.
