Feature request (or maybe is already there?) Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I often write in OO some very simple lists, which have just one column (imagine a grocery shopping list). I would like to be able to print them on more than one column, because it seems ridiculous to have many pages printed only on a small band on the left, instead of having a nicely printed multi column single page.
I could print multiple pages on a single sheet, but this works only with an horizontal orientation of the paper and leaves anyway a lot of blank space.
I could also create a second and a third column and put "manually" my items there, but this would completely miss the sense of OO, which is to create coherent and automatically structured documents.
Any idea? Am I missing something? Would it be possible to have such a feature in OO 4?
You can do a bit of this already. In the print command, select "Layout" in the options, then set the number of pages per sheet to 2. You'll get two pages of your outline printed side by side on each sheet, oriented in landscape mode.

Here's what the dialog looks like in 10.4.11:

And a preview of the result:

Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to go to more than 2 "columns" per page, as many lists would permit.

Use Help->Send Feedback to send your feature requests to Omni so that they'll be tracked in their development database.

yes, as I indicated that's the only way I found too. But, as you correctly point out, it is just a partial workaround.
I think I'll follow your suggestion and write a feedback to the Omni folks.
