Publisher crashes when printing pages outside "Include On Export" range.

Recommended Posts

When trying to print a document with multiple sections and at least one section is not marked as "Include On Export" choosing wrong page range ("Pages:") cause a crash when printing.

Example (steps to reproduce):

  1. create new document
  2. add pages to get 8 total
  3. in section manager create second section for pages 5-8
  4. uncheck in first section "Include On Export"
  5. File -> Print
  6. set print range as 1-4 (as the preview shows you only have 4 pages, so 1-4 seems intuitive choice; sidenote... or sidebug: the range appears invisible)
  7. press "Print"

Tested on Windows 11 and latest version of AP.

Expected behaviour: message box informing about wrong range input.

Thank you @NathanC.

Just wanted to extend that bug with:

  • If all sections are not "Include On Export" (so for example you have only one section and the option is not checked) going to "File -> Print" (or Ctrl+P) cause an immediate crash (no print window appears).

Steps to reproduce:

  • create new empty document
  • go to "Section Manager"
  • uncheck "Include On Export"
  • go to "File -> Print"

Expected behaviour:

  • message box explaining no sections are marked as "Include On Export" or/and
  • grayed out Print option (might be confusing as the user will not know the reason behind graying)
