Description Paul Hubert 2017-10-05 15:45:41 UTC
When specifying LETTER size paper (8.5x11"), LibreOffice Writer ORIENTS the print as LANDSCAPE but also TRUNCATES the document so not all the text is printed. The workaround is to specify A4 size, but this requires playing with the margins and is certainly unacceptable for the long term.

In other words, it is presently NOT possible to achieve acceptable output in Writer under the 5.4 tree when LETTER size is specified. This SHOULD be a simple fix (and one must wonder just how it was broken in the first place!).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. specify Letter size paper
2. Print

Pretty straightforward!

Actual Results:  
displays before print (during options selection) as landscape, but the bottom of the text is truncated (Print Preview shows NORMAL orientation and formatting).

Expected Results:
Printed as displayed in the print dialog.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
This happens on two different machines, one of which is NEW (a 27" iMac and a 15" Macbook Pro), so PROFILE should be NO issue. It is present THROUGH
