Description Alfonsas Stonis 2021-11-13 08:51:23 UTC
LibreOffice installed US document template with printer set to letter while locale is AU. As a result no-one can print properly documents created by LibreOffice.

It took me long time to find what was the issue. Only recently I found that you need to create new default document template and then change it. I have not tested does it work well. In mean time the only option was to migrate to Microsoft office.

I am using Ubuntu 21.10.

I had no temple set previously. After I set it to the one I have modified not writer documents are created with A4.

I tried Calc applications and it has no templates at all. All Calc documents are set to Letter format, while my locale is AU and printer is set to A4.
