NeoOffice/J is great. One odd thing if I try to Print using menu it comes up with Printer settings dialog rather than Print dialog, and Printer Setting brings up Page Setup dialog. But I found that the Print icon at the top works fine so I use that instead.

Printing does work if you select the File->Print menu. If you do that, the "Printer Options" dialog is displayed. If you press the "OK" button in that dialog, the native "Print" dialog will be displayed. What surprises many users is that the "Printer Options" dialog is displayed before the native "Print" dialog instead of after like in OOo.

This reverse ordering of dialogs is due to the hacky way I got the native "Print" dialog to work in NeoJ 0.7. In NeoJ 0.7.1 (to be released very soon), I have figured out to display the dialogs in the same order as OOo.

As for File -> Printer Settings menu item displaying the native "Page Setup" dialog, this was done because the OOo "Printer Settings" dialog became useless since, in Java, the printer is selected in the native "Print" dialog. As a result, I needed to find some place to put the native "Page Setup" dialog and since File -> Printer Settings was now unused, it seemed like a reasonable place to put it.
