Description James Falksen 2021-10-08 15:14:43 UTC
Description:
Occasionally, a writer document looks fine on the screen, looks fine on the print preview, looks fine when exported to pdf, but comes out wrong on paper. I have not seen this in Calc and haven't used other components much. I have done over 100 of this ilk, but this failure has happened only 3 or 4 times. In one instance, changing the page area from a solid color to a crosshatch gave a good print. Have even tried protecting contents, position, and size -- to no avail. Mostly, the graphics are PNG. On an instance where it fails, it always fails.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load the odt file
2. print
3.

Actual Results:
At least 1 of the graphics prints out of place and the wrong size. The page area is incomplete.

Expected Results:
The printed image matches the print preview.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

I didn't reproduce this yesterday, but I do today (using a PDF printer)

The image in the left corner shrinks and gets a different position

I can't reproduce in Linux, so maybe this really is Windows only as already noted under Hardware.
