Description Emil Velikov 2018-05-10 17:33:18 UTC
The orientation/preview is not updated immediately, workarounds are needed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an presentation, go to the print dialog
2. Select "Notes" in the Document drop-down menu
3. Select any other printer (even "Print to File...")
4. Switch back to the printer you want to use - portrait is preserved (yay) 

Actual Results:  
2. Actual orientation is still landscape, preview still shows landscape
3. Actual orientation and preview are updated to portrait
4. Portrait mode is preserved

See the attached step1/2/3/4 pictures.

Expected Results:
2. Should change the orientation and preview to portrait.
Step 3+4 should not be needed.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Problem is observed on
- Official Arch package LOver and
Be that as-is or with SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN={gtk,gtk3} SAL_SYNCHRONIZE=1

Repro, but not on Win. Repro also with gtk2 and gtk3 backends.
No repro with 3.6.7

it seems the orientation problem was changed for good in https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=57991f885e60d04e93bf5004d4fdceee7d29f3d8, so the step 2 is correct... However, it should change to A4 when we change the printer, I guess.

Adding Vasily Melenchuk to the loop to hear his opinion....
