Page Setup Dialog is confusing

Description

The dialog to print to a supported printer is confusing due to the inconsistent naming convention used for the various setup dialogs. I'll give an example: Open a document with Pe (eg haikuports.conf) From the "File" dropdown menu select "Page setup..." (screenshot1) This brings up the "Page setup" dialog with only one available option "Paper Setup" (screenshot2) Select "Paper setup", and again we get a dialog called "Page setup". (screenshot3) Shouldn't it be "Paper setup"? The selection in the "File" dropdown menu should be called "Paper setup" in the first place and bring up the "Paper setup" dialog directly, without all the additional mouseclicks. More than one user has mistakenly tried printing this way only to find their printer seemingly does not work.
