Hi,

I am used to have print dialog in OO with Options button as mentioned in help:

What I have now is a Preview without Options button.

Option/Page layout tabs in dialog with preview offer sume functionality but are different. I just want it as it was before.
I installed HP printer driver so I suspect it. I uninstalled it but without effect.

Is it there a way to get back a Print dialog with Options? Some setting or registry change?

Thanks and best regards!

What operating system are you using? The dialog box looks like something from Windows 9x.

The dialog box doesn't show any installed physical printer. The options being displayed are for the virtual PDF printer that is selected in the Print dialog box. Did you install the latest printer driver? I don't think a printer will show in the dialog box if it doesn't have a driver installed. The options displayed in the Print dialog box come from the printer driver.

Yes, I am using old OO 3.3.0 and Win7 64 bit OS with Lenovo i3CPU 2.13GHz. Older SW on newer machines for better performance (well, my PC is now already old :)

I know I had a dialog with Options button and it has more functionality as Layout or Options tab, see figures below. Yes, It is only PDF Bullzip as I already uninstalled other two HP printer drivers. One of them was just installed and I suppose it caused such appearance of a dialog. Otherwise, dialog layout is always the same for all printers.
I am not keen to make re-installation of OO just due this annoyance.
