Bean.app versus LibreOffice in Mac printing

Thoughts

Bean.appSo I had to help my sister Elke print a two part assignment today, one in Bean.app RTFD, the other in LibreOffice ODF. Both used the standard OS X printer window. Here’s how they performed:

Application Bean.app LibreOffice
Desired
outcome
Print two pages
to one
Print two pages
to one
Result Printed two pages

Garbled mess

Elke says Bean.app and Exposé are the primary reasons she uses Macs! I masochistically hand code my documents in DocBook because I detest word processors, but high praise indeed ^____^.
