Description Lloyd 2017-03-28 17:37:49 UTC
Description:
Can’t get LibreOffice to print #10 envelopes. Have tried to use the envelope printing wizard, and also tried to set up manually. Can’t get LibreOffice to print in Landscape mode, at all. When the envelope is exported to PDF file, the text location is wrong. Need LibreOffice to both print in Landscape mode, and with the text promoted to the proper locations.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to print a #10 envelope
2.Same problem every time on multiple versions of LibreOffice.
3.

Actual Results:  
Envelopes always printed in Portrait Mode. Landscape mode not accessible. If saved as a PDF file, then PDF program will (Sometimes) print in Landscape mode with text in wrong location.

Expected Results:
Expected a properly addresses envelope.


Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Have tried disabling auto rotation in printer. Made things worse.

Hello Lloyd,

it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

This bug is still present in the latest version of Libreoffice in Fedora 27, 5.4.4.2-1.  I opened another bug with Fedora, but perhaps this is the best place to track it:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1530398

Envelope printing works correctly in older versions.  In particular, I still have a Fedora 21 box running Libreoffice 4.3.7.2-12, and envelope printing works correctly on it.

Simple number 10 envelope that never prints with text matching orientation.

I am submitting the same attachments I did with the bug I filed for Fedora.

I am submitting the same attachments I did with the bug I filed for Fedora.  This one prints correctly, but you have to tilt your head sideways to edit it.

Each of the bugs listed has somewhat different symptoms, and arose in different releases of LO.  The particular behavior I reported in this bug didn't start until sometime after version 4.3.7.2-12.

Ok, adding regression keyword.

I am having the same issue on my Fedora 28 KDE machine. I have a brothers HL-3170CDW printer. I am running version of 6.0.6.2 of Libreoffice, Build ID: 6.0.6.2-1.fc28. The orientation is incorrect.
