Description Robert Timmins 2017-11-21 06:04:12 UTC
When PRINTING, the printer dialog box shows the document rotated 90 degrees, as if in landscape mode, regardless of the actual page orientation. If the file is saved in any format, including when "printed" to PDF, the incorrect orientation is preserved. However, if the file is "exported" to PDF (not using the Print function), the orientation of the PDF file is correct.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a new Writer Document (page orientation is portrait by default).
2.Enter some text
3.Click on "File/Print" (observe preview pane)

Actual Results:  
Print dialog box shows text in wrong orientation. Page prints in wrong orientation (rotated 90 degrees , ). If file is "printed to PDF" the incorrect orientation os preserved. File can be saved ("File/Save As") in any format and when re-opened incorrect orientation is preserved. However, using the "File/Export to PDF" option creates a PDF with correct (portrait) orientation.

Expected Results:
File should remain in portrait mode at all times, unless and until the page orientation is explicitly changed to landscape.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes
