[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 129140] New: Wording in printer dialog

https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=129140

            Bug ID: 129140
           Summary: Wording in printer dialog
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Keywords: needsUXEval
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: UI
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
                CC: [hidden email]

I got an email about wrong wording; the request sounds good to me:

The printer dialog in 6.3.3.2 looks new to me. It's nice, but with a duplex
printer it comes up with the "Paper Sides" dialog box, and the wording in the
drop-down seems to be a conflation of two different ways of saying it.

The simple English version is we print *on* paper, so it should read "print
*on* one side" or "print *on* both sides".

The writer may have got confused with "print *in* simplex" and "print *in*
duplex.

My preferred dialog would read

Print on one side (simplex)
Print on both sides (duplex long edge)
Print on both sides (duplex short edge)

What I find is "Paper sides" with

Print only in one side
Print in both sides (long edge)
Print in both sides (short edge)

(should be "on" as well) but no "Print in Duplex". A screenshot might help.

Yes those are the options that appear. "print on both sides" is just user-ese
for duplex. That's why I suggested the options the way I did - user-ese first
followed by technical-ese in brackets. So the three options are single-sided,
double-sided portrait, and double-sided landscape.

Basically, all I'm asking is that those three options just be re-worded as I
suggested (or something similar) because, as it stands, they might be perfectly
understandable but they are not correct English.

Seeing as both my printers are fully duplex capable, I don't know what is
displayed if/when you offer "manual duplex" where the program prints odd pages,
waits for the user to turn the paper over, and then prints even pages.
