Here's where I disagree. And tried again before saying unjustified things. If I
open the template, and wether I enable or disable macros when asked, I can do a
page preview of all pages. That being said, I can do a fast print (from the
button with the icon of a printer) and even a File|Print.

BUT if I select a sheet from OTHER book (file .ods) and right click on the tab
and select "Move/Copy Sheet" and then place it on the document based on the
template, THEN I can not do neither page preview (I can but nothing is shown)
nor fast printing nor normal print command (the little preview on the left side
of the print window is empty). As I said in first post, the workaround is to
select the non empty cells and then Print|Selection.

Tried also opening the template, and selecting Insert|Sheet from file. Same
behavior.

I can't figure out how the other users can't reproduce this.

And regarding (1), this was not observed when using L.O. 3.2 . Don't know about
3.3 .-

CLICK!: I just thought of a way people might not be able to reproduce this
(pagebreaks ARE in the template before moving/copy sheets form other files to
it): Maybe is some internalization or localization (i10n, l18n)... As I said, I
use LO in Spanish... From Options|Language Configuration, I have:
User Interface: Español (España)
Regional Conf.: Español (Argentina)
Decimal: Ticked (Same as reg. conf.)
Default Currency: ARS $ Español (Argentina)
Default Languages for Documents:
         Occidental: Default - Español (Argentina)
Only for actual doc. Unticked.
Advanced Language Management: Both options Unticked.


Maybe this is it!!

Nicolás
