Description josh 2017-10-17 00:08:48 UTC
If I create a document in Writer that is letter-sized (8.5" x 11") in portrait and open the Print dialog, the dialog's print preview shows the document outline in portrait, but the content is mapped onto the page in landscape orientation.  This also reflects how the page is actually printed, resulting in the content being cut off and some of the page not being used.

Interestingly, the Print Preview shows the document rendered properly, in Portrait.  It is only the Print Dialog that shows the document rendered incorrectly, and the actual printed output is also incorrect.

I first noticed this on, and it is still happening on

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a letter-sized document in portrait orientation (8.5" x 11")
2. Add content to the document
3. Open the Print dialog
4. Observe that the preview shown in the dialog is rendering the document outline in portrait, but the content is in landscape and goes off the edge of the page.
5. Print the document, and observe that the content is printed as shown in the Print dialog's preview (i.e., incorrectly).

Actual Results:  
Document prints incorrectly, with the content going off the edge of the page.

Expected Results:
Documents printed in portrait should be printed with the content actually in portrait orientation, with content remaining on the page and not overlapping the page edge.

Reproducible: Always
