It hasn't been mentioned if the OP is printing to PDF, and my bad for never reporting the bug, but using LibreOffice File>Export as PDF or the Export Directly as PDF icon causes EVERYTHING on all tabs to print to the PDF no matter what print range might be specified, no matter if the print ranges are deleted then selected anew. EVERYTHING gets dumped into a PDF.

I don't think that's a bug. [...]

The documentation thinks it is a bug. Under "Using print ranges", it says: "You can define which range of cells on a spreadsheet are to be printed or exported to a PDF. The cells on the sheet that are not part of the defined print range are not printed or exported. Also, any sheets without a defined print range are not printed or exported."

The documentation thinks what's a bug, exactly? Alan claimed that if you try to print as a PDF then everything gets printed, without any choice. You appear to be stating that the documentation coincides with reality, which is exactly the opposite and what I said. Thus what Alan claimed is a bug is NOT a bug. Or are we somehow at cross purposes?

I think you do misunderstand me; perhaps I was a little brief. The original claim was that exporting to PDF takes no account of defined print ranges and exports the entire document. (I didn't check that or experiment with it.) We are not talking about the separate facility, in the print and export dialogues, to print or export the currently selected range, are we? You suggested that it was not a bug: in other words, that you expected export as PDF should disregard defined print ranges, as we were told it did. But the documentation about print ranges makes clear that they are supposed to apply equally to printing and exporting, in other words that exporting to PDF should export only material within any defined print ranges and not other material.
