Can't get LETTER size TEXT DOCUMENT to print in Portrait mode
If the PAGE layout setting = PORTRAIT, and the Paper Size = LETTER, the print dialog box shows the document sideways and it prints that way.
WORKAROUND: Change Paper Size to A4, or USER CUSTOM 8.51" X 11.0" and it works fine. There is something wrong with LETTER paper.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open TEXT document
2. In Format / Page tab: Ensure Orientation is set to Portrait and Select Paper Format = LETTER
3. Click OK
4. PRINT document (prints landscape on portrait paper).
[By the way, Print Preview shows it as portrait]
Prints landscape on portrait paper
Print portrait on portrait

this might be a duplicate of an already reported bug (rings a bell). Please could you provide:
- the name and type of printer setup (network/usb, etc);
- the language setting of your LibreOffice installation.
Setting to NEEDINFO, please set back to UNCONFIRMED when you have provided the requested information.
@Brain : you also mention your version of LibreOffice as 184.108.40.206
Please try with a latest production release (Fresh/Stable) and report back your findings here.
Possible DUP of bug 86838 (which would potentially need to be re-opened) , but am awaiting confirmation from OP.

Additional comment: SOMEONE ASKED for me to update to the newest version and test. This is the LibreOffice VANILLA version, available in the APP Store. This does NOT happen in the NON-Vanilla versions of LibreOffice. ONLY Vanilla.

I'm not sure that this is resolved.
Using 5.4 on macOS Sierra.
Print preview is correct, however portrait always prints out landscape.
Can export to PDF and is correct.
The printer screen doesn't offer the portrait/landscape choice. Always printing in landscape. This is a critical issue.
This bug renders the Libra office useless - Please this is a Critical issue.
