[BUG 3.4] Printer quality settings wrong in AOO 3.4

Hi!

I noticed that every time I want to print to my wireless HP Officeject, the printing settings are at best quality and photo paper.

It is very hard to change the settings since they always default to that.

It is just a bug report.

Kind regards,

Re: colours in Calc

Hi Pam,

From your description, I do not really understand your problem. I guess you
have a Spreadsheet document(ods file). It worked fine in your old OOo (may
be OOo3.3). After you upgrade OOo to AOO3.4, it does not work now. You can
open/file a bug in https://issues.apache.org/ooo . Please attach your
problem file in the bug. Then we can have a look and help you find the
reason.

OHH - ok, I have to admit this - I never registered keys for the SVN
system apparently - I've just been lazy 
- if anyone would just check that in I would appreciate it.. 

otherwise - I'll waddle over and finish getting setup..

Since I did an update the Open Office application opens up every time, when I start up my computer, is there a

Crazy idea: Use Google to translate website

We've probably all seen the Google Translate service at:
https://translate.google.com/

And many of us have probably seen this integrated into websites, so a
reader can select a translation language from a menu on the page.

The machine-generated translations are variable.  Sometimes they are
incomprehensible.  And sometimes the translations are pretty good.
But they are never as good as an expert human translation.

If you hover your mouse over a Google Translate translation, it offers
an option, "contribute a better translation".   That, combined with
the ability to easily switch back to the original page, allows Google
to refine their translations.  So you can fix errors in the machine
translation.  Until now this has all been out of the website owner's
control.

According to this blog post [1] Google is now enabling the suggested
translations to go back to the website owner for review and approval.
They've also added site-specific glossary support as well as the
ability to support multiple translation editors per account (in
addition to the unbounded number of readers who can suggest
translations).

So this is getting interesting.

Is this worth enabling for either the podling website or the
www.openoffice.org website?

Note that this does mean we stop doing NL pages.  But this does allow
us to quickly expand the scope of our translations, both in supported
languages as well as translated pages.  It also lowers the barrier to
entry for contributors who want to improve the machine generated
translations.
