Description Stefan Wessels 2018-08-24 07:17:52 UTC
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
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"

Actual Results:
Figure is distributed on several pages (4) but the size is reduced to fit page

Expected Results:
Figure should be printed in original size on several pages

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

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.
See -> https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/log/?qt=range&q=cb443d07d54d6698eff51b5be2c6b56323f10315..bc0146c2ae43256552c276d2dd86291c98556c42

Unfortunately, the fix can't be backported. We will need to wait until LibreOffice 6.3 is released...
