[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 122707] New: Writer: Print (selected) pages harder to use in new printer dialog in 6.3+

https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122707

            Bug ID: 122707
           Summary: Writer: Print (selected) pages harder to use in new
                    printer dialog in 6.3+
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: 6.3.0.0.alpha0+ Master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Keywords: needsUXEval
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer

Ranges and Copies - compare LO 6.2 6.3+.jpg

Writer has new printer dialog from 6.3+.
Print (selected) pages is harder to use in new printer dialog in 6.3+
Previously, "Pages" to select was visible, although one had to select first to
write pages.
Now, "Print pages" is not visible, which I find a step backwards.

Since there seems to be enough space, I don't know why there's dropdown for:
Print all pages,
Print pages,
Print even pages,
Print odd pages.
IMHO, radio would be better.

Also, click on pages number field should select "Print pages" option, so that
we save a click.

OK, had to think a bit on this. So your concern is use of listbox rather than
radio button selectors.

Have to admit that given the larger fixed size of the dialog (seems it could be
resizable) that adding the two additional Radio buttons (for Print Even, Print
Odd) might be better UX.

The decision was made by the devs to save space. Talked to him about this
during last year's conference. Not sure how much time Daniel is willing to put
into the project after GSoC.
