If we are talking about the OpenOffice.org Print Options dialog, that is a different thing and we might be able to move it to the File :: Page Setup menu as that is where OpenOffice.org 3.0 moved it. I just have to figure out how they moved it as the code in OOo 3.0 looks no different than in OOo 2.2.1.

Moving that into Page Setup [aka OOo's "Printer Settings"] seems sub-optimal, since those settings are things you'd (I'd) want to change on a per-print-run basis, where as Page Setup is something you set once and forget about it (or never even need to set at all).

I personally would much rather put up with that OOo window appearing after the native print stuff when I don't want it (and being able to tick options in it when I do need it) until the OOo work I mentioned in my previous post has gotten to the point where it's useable (and thus something we could cherry-pick).

(OOo doesn't use the native page setup dialogue anyway, just the same old crappy OOo printer selection one they've always used, so I assume it was pretty easy for them to shoehorn more junk in there. According to issue 77579, the code was in cws nativeprintdlg01, if you are determined to do this now.)

Good news! I found the code that controls this and it was as simple as moving 2 lines of code from the print dialog code to the printer settings dialog code.

So, starting in NeoOffice 3.0 Early Access, when you select the File :: Print menu, the Print Options dialog will never appear. You will see the native Mac OS X print dialog and then NeoOffice will skip display of the Print Options dialog.

To access the Print Options dialog after I make this change, select the file Printer Settings menu. Like before, the native Mac OS X page setup dialog will appear. If you press the OK button in this dialog, the old Print Options dialog will appear.

I have now edited the brochure printing page on the wiki to reflect this change. I have a feeling that there is still a 'wrinkle' about brochure printing which I have not got quite straight, so if anyone can spot it please let me know or tidy it up yourself. Thank you
