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

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

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.)

Well that's the absolute basis of the whole conversation, so that's
absolutely the first thing I did!

We are not talking about the separate facility, 
in the print and export dialogues, to print or export the currently 
selected range, are we?

Don't care. They all behave the same or similar.

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.

No I suggested it was not a bug and that it did work exactly as
everybody else expected it would and as documented apparently (I didn't
check the documentation :)  You needed to actually read what I wrote
after that one sentence and try to understand the whole message.

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
