Templates and Printer Options

Postby wtmann » Mon Jun 21, 2010 11:00 am


With previous versions of OOo I could assign different printer options (tray, single/double-side, etc.) to my templates and when I create documents from them I'd find the correct printer settings. With version 3.2 I can assign the options to the templates, but when I create a document that uses them I get the default printer options and not those from the template. If then I go back to check the settings on the template I find that the settings are now the default ones and not those that I originally set.

Has anyone else had this problem or is it just me? Thanks for any help or insight in the problem.

Take a look at:
    Tools > Options > OOo Writer > Print > Paper tray from printer settings
    Tools > Options > Load/Save > General > Load > Load printer settings with the document
To be honest, I'm not 100% sure how those settings work, but they're the only ones I can think of that might affect you situation.
