The printing option in libreoffice draw for large sheets "Distribute on multiple sheets of paper" doesn't work any more.
Most probably it happened after update to version 126.96.36.199
Instead of distributing the drawing is downsized to fit the page.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create new sheet
2.Select - Page - Properties - Format:user
3.Select a large page size e.g. 1000 mm x 200 mm
4. Draw any figure e.g. large rectangle
5. Select - File - Print
6. Under LibreOffice Draw select "Distribute on multiple sheets of paper"
Figure is distributed on several pages (4) but the size is reduced to fit page
Figure should be printed in original size on several pages

tdf#91362: Use document paper size for printing slides.
By default for priniting slides we use not default A4, but size provided
in slide properties.
Additinally renamed IsPageSize() -> IsPaperSize(): it is less ambiguous.

This is fixed by the work done by Daniel Silva on the new print dialog.

Closing as RESOLVED FIXED
Unfortunately, the fix can't be backported. We will need to wait until LibreOffice 6.3 is released...
Installed Version 188.8.131.52 under debian linux testing.
Function for printing on multiple pages ist still not working.
Somehow multiple pages are shown inside the preview window.
However the slicing is done improper.
Too many sides generated with big overlaps.
Have tested this with LO 184.108.40.206 on OpenSUSE 15 64bit rpm Linux.
Doesn't work. The print will give the whole content on the first page and parts of the content on the other pages.
The new dialog will show different content in the preview when scrolling through the page.
I open the dialog and it shows in tab LibreOffice Draw when choosing "Distribute on multiple sheets of paper" the portrait-format of the paper A4 of my printer. The document has landscape format A2. The print-preview will print a A4 landscape-format on 2 A4 portrait-format-pages. I could see this when switching to the second page of preview. Going back to the first par shows the preview in landscape-format. It will print the A2-format on a A4-format page.
There isn't fixed a bug with this dialog. There were created new bugs.
This was marked Linux but looks like the problem also in Windows. Test LO 6.4+.
Tested LO 6.4 on Linux and Windows. Bug is still there.

Are you sure?
If I compile either 220.127.116.11.alpha0+ or commit bc0146c2ae43256552c276d2dd86291c98556c42 (TIP of Daniel Silva patches), I see the same problem.
If I compile
libreoffice-18.104.22.168 with reverted Vasily patch, it works like a charm.
I keep testing and let you know.
Stills reproduced with Version: 22.214.171.124 (x64)

This bug is a result of the fix for bug 91362. I asked (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91362#c23) to revert this fix as it removes an useful functionality, but didn't get an answer.
Best regards. JBF
