My POV: I would LIKE a "save (or better: close) and reopen in PP mode" 
for some  WRITER  documents. Those are data sheets and small catalogs, 
what mostly are opened to print some pages of the document as attachment 
for a delivery of goods or similar. So my suggestion would have been 
"let WRITER documents open documents in PP mode if they have been saved 
from PP mode", in some cases that saves some mouse clicks.

But that is a very low-value desire.

Currently Writer always will open in normal view mode (or Web view), 
even if the document has been saved from PP mode.

So we should eliminate that inconsistence by always opening documents in 
Normal View (or Page break preview mode, if selected), even if document 
has been saved from PP view. But I do not recommend to disable "save" as 
long as PP is active. That would be inconsistent compared to writer and 
might be worrying. Simply ignore "was in PP mode when has been saved".

Best regards
