True. Funnily, that is what I've originally wrote:
        Group "Range and copies": Slightly improved layout which is
        based on the original printing dialog, since we have to respect
        our existing user base. [1]

Seems that the original behavior hasn't been preserved :-\

Correct. Concerning the latter, I somehow remember that this was in
discussion and I have been overruled.

Indeed, that would be great. I noticed another issue that seems to be
different with regard to the original specification. And, there is a
serious usability/utility issue since the dialog doesn't save printer /
printing options in certain cases. So if there is a helpful (developer)
hand, then I'd like to resolve this ... Anybody? :-)
