Then the user gets what he/she wants (which is right IMO)

Which you could define as being 'the value to be stored'?
I.e. the range is 'the latest' value selected for printing?

We're writing a standard Rob.
If the default is ignored it's a simple non-compliance.

Not as I've suggested.

Only in a 'do as you please scenario'.
