Bug#353595: openoffice.org: Workaround for brochure printing

Package: openoffice.org
Version: 2.0.3-1
Followup-For: Bug #353595

This is just to report that the workaround given in the Novell site
(at https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=83925)
works on the Debian OOo 2.0.3 package. Here are the details:

To set the orientation for landscape (e.g. to print brochure) when the 
orientation selector is missing from the print options dilaog you
can do the following instead:
1) Go into page preview mode
2) Select Print Options from the Right Click context menu
OR click on the 'Print options page view' button in the Page preview 
tool bar
3) Select landscape in the Format section of the dialog
4) Print as usual. The orientation preference is saved with the 

Unfortunately the 'Print options page view' button is greyed out 
unless you are in Page Preview mode.

We need to have the orientation selector back in the printer options 
dialog as this is far from intuitive, but at least this gives a way 
of using the Debian packages and still printing brochures in the mean 

HTH, Peter
