From page 1 only the left 20cm are printed

This error is new, it worked fine until the last Update.
I have a Text in Landcape DIN A4, if I Print it an a HP OfficejetPro 8600 Only the leftmost 20cm are printed, so the area which also would fit on a Portrait page. But the Orientation is OK, So the right 10cm stay blank. The Print Preview is OK too. I also can export it to PDF and print it using Acrobat Reader. So it must be a problem in the printing routines.
I add the File

No repro 7.0.0.Repro 7.1 and 7.2+ with PDF printer. Can be see in File-Print preview window (not Print Preview). I set New abd bibisectRequest

Bibisected this to the following commit using repo bibisect-win64-7.1 (while not mentioned in the report apart from the OS field, the bug seems to be Win-only). Adding CC: to Samuel Mehrbrodt.

tdf#134646 Remove "nearest paper matching" feature

I can't reproduce that.
Can you attach a screenshot how your print preview looks like?

Preview in Print dialog

Sure, I was looking at the preview in the Print dialog, which looks as in the attached screenshot, taken from a fresh daily build.

Maybe it needs some follow up fix, that the printer default paper is chosen when no matching paper can be found.

@Dimitri: Btw, you can probably work around this issue by correctly setting the page size to A4 in Writer Page properties.

This is not Writer only, Impress sample is attachment 165651 [details] from bug 136873. 
Orientation Automatic is wrong and change to Portrait or Landscape doesn't help.

from sxw converted File with new changes

I loaded an old sxw file, made same changes and saved it as odt. When I try to print it only the left 20cm are printed
Comment 9 Dimitri Junker 2021-04-30 11:23:53 UTC
For some time I had no Problem, but yesterday it happend again. So I started thinking what was different. It was originaly an old sxw File from 2003. So maybe the real Problem starts with the sxm import. It contains a Cover for a DVD which I changed a little bit and than printed it. New ones with the same Layout work fine.
The same error ocures when I print it with pdfcreator.
I'll add the sxw, odt and pdf as Attachments

The sxw file

And finaly the original sxw File

It would be worth testing this in master again - some changes have been made in impress at least.
Comment 13 Timur 2022-04-05 12:11:36 UTC
Repro 7.4+ for ODT attachment 170475 [details] and attachment 171526 [details].
This remains Writer bug, as Impress sample attachment 165651 [details] from bug 136873 is better, Print doesn't cut now, on the contrary it leaves space.
