Showing Page Preview, File > Print, and printed result.
I have set page margins to use a precise range for printing because the paper we use has some decoratoins at the margins. However, LO seems to neglect those settings.
The settings are:
Format > Page > Page tab
Format C5 Envolope
Text direction Right-to-left (vertical)
Page layout right and left
The "Page Preview" works well, and looks fine, while the preview in "File > Print" works not well, and some margins are cut.
The final printed papper has more margins cut than the preview in "File > Print".
The margins are around 3.4cm at bottom, and around 2.1cm at right (measured by a ruller).
Please see the attachment to know more.
PS. I use Chinese (traditional) locale, and the problem does not exist in OpenOffice.org 3.0 (OOO300m9).
Cedric, any chance to look into this? Reducing prio, this does not match critical severity.

Document with 0" margins not working on left margin
Even though all margins are set to 0", there always is approximately 1/8" on the left margin. The top, bottom and right are correct.

Scanned input from 0 margin Draw document print out.
This is the document as it looks when printed. Although you cannot tell from the scan, the right margin does go to the edge of the paper.
People who relies on printing for their life (ex. business, data exchange, publishing...etc.) care this bug a lot.
For example, my mother keeps a flower shop which prints cards a lot with the flower to show someone's celebretion, wishes, etc. But there are many types of cards having some preprinted patterns on the margin, so the margin control in the Print function plays a critical role.
I introduced OOo 3.0 for my mother's flwer shop, it works exactly fine. As I am a promoter of LibreOffice and a coordinator of Chinese (Taiwan) Team, I think I should deploy LibreOffice to my mother's workflow.
But the most vital part for her business, margin control of printing, is broken in LibreOffice 3.3.0, we just go back to OOo 3.0.
I think that this function is quite important for publishing, it should be fixed as soon as possible, or LibreOffice won't gain its marketshare in that field.
Please test this bug with a newer LibreOffice version...
Hi, I tested in LibO 3.5.0. The problem still ocuurs.
Although "C5 envolope" page size is specified, the preview in File > Print (not print privew icon on the tool bar) shows "148mm (A5) * 210mm" instead of "162mm (C5 envolope) * 229mm".
The printed result shows more part been cut than we see in File > Print preview.
I wwill upload the file I created for you guys to test and reproduce the problem.

The document page format is set to C5 envolope.
Setting of the page format is ignored by File > Print preview and even ignored while printing. The printing margins are cut unexpectedly.
Strange, thb aid he reduced prio in comment 1, yet the bug still claims to be critical and the history shows nothing wrt that.
Indeedly. Doing it now.

LibreOffice and printer HP envy 4500e: Cutoff margins when printed in landscape.
Only in Linux Mint 17 Qiana Cinnamon 64bit and LibreOffice 126.96.36.199.
Not in Ubuntu 14.04 64bit and LibreOffice 188.8.131.52.
Not in Win7 and LibreOffice 184.108.40.206.
So in Linux, with HPLIP 3.15.2.
From the HP Device Manager it is possible to print to all edges on zero.
In LibreOffice, printing in portrait mode: top and bottom is cut off at 1.2cm.
Printing in landscape mode, then left and right is cut off at 1.2cm.
Although in preview the picture each time is correct.
Landscape mode, i often use in Calc, with great amount of data, from who the left and right columns are cutoff.
With Epson Printer SX515W things work fine on each platform.
Why was patch added to keywords? that implies that there is a patch on the bug report which there is not. Removing it.

Could you have a test on LibreOffice 5.2 series again to check the problem still exist or not?
If it works, we can close this bug then.
I'm closing this issue because there is no other inputs reported they still have the problem.
