Description Tommy Trussell 2018-03-12 03:33:47 UTC
I have been trying to print a 2-up document containing slides, but I couldn't get it to work as expected. The original document was created by someone else, but probably originally Microsoft PowerPoint. SO I created a simple slide show with three slides and saw the same behavior.

My workaround is to export the slides to PDF and change the layout using the print dialog from the Evince Document Viewer print options.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a document with 3 slides
2. View --> Handout Master
3. Choose the layout with two slides on it
4. File --> Print
5. Select Document --> Handouts
6. Note that the document preview shows the slides are shown miss-fitted on a landscape orientation instead of being oriented in a portrait fashion as the master document shows.
7. Even choosing Slides per Page --> 2 doesn't make it right.

Actual Results:  
Orientation of the handouts was wrong; the slides did not respect the master layout

Expected Results:
I expected the slides to print using the layout defined in the Handouts master slide.

Reproducible: Always
