printerpullpages specification

Terrence Enger
Greetings,

I have found "New Printing UI – Better Printing for OpenOffice.org"
<http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/w/images/4/42/2010-09-02_NewPrintingUI-printerpullpages_Noack.odp>.
Page 19 pictures a spreadsheet said to have details for each GUI
element in the new interface.  How, I wonder, can I find this
spreadsheet?

( For what it's worth, I am asking because along the way to commenting
on issue 70116
<http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=70116>, I made myself
thoroughly confused about the precedence, scope, and lifetime of the
printing options that the user can enter at various places in OOo. )

Thank you for your help,
Terry.

Hi Terry,

thanks for your mail ... and thanks for having a look at the
presentation document :-)

Well, it is rather a spreadsheet commenting all the elements in the
"old" interface. It had been used to come up with the new one ... but
you'll find some information about the transition from the old to the
new interface.

Here is the page:
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Printerpullpages/Current_State_of_Printing_OOo31

Here is the document:
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/File:Current_Dialogs_ListOfAllPrintDialogElements.ods

Well, well, there are quite numerous things that have to be improved
with regard to saving options within the document. But this is another
story :-)

But maybe this document helps, too. It's on the same wiki page:
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/File:Current_PrintingOptions_SettingsInDocumentFiles.odt

Cheers,
Christoph
