Environment = Ubuntu 16.04 & Firefox 58 & LibreOffice Impress Version: 18.104.22.168
No combination of printer presets, printer options or printer configurations at the OS level will allow a user to select paper size.
Impress is not aware of the size of the slide.
Impress does not acknowledge printer configurations.
In summary, the print dialog box is totally broken.
None of the options listed below function in any sort of way:
Print > Options
fail = [checkbox] Use only paper tray from printer preferences
fail = [checkbox] Use only paper size from printer preferences
Print > General > Properties... > Paper
fail = [dropdown] Paper size == greyed out
fail = [dropdown] Orientation == greyed out
Print > General > Properties... > Device
fail = dialogue box does not read in any of the printer settings
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a presentation that uses a 19"X13" slide
2.Try to print this slide (shrink to fit to 11"x17" / Tabloid / ANSI B)
The only possible (paper & *.pdf) output will be a US letter sized document.
This used to work in 5.1.X.X.
It used to be possible to print to something other than a US letter.
User Profile Reset: No
Please fix the "Black and White" printing output.
It should be easy for the user to print without the background image and have all entities converted to black or greyscale on a white background in order to make paper printing possible. This is a important requirement for a corporate environment.

Please try with 6.0. I am able to print to any size when I use the "use only paper size" option.
