Description Kriton Kyrimis 2011-05-27 10:13:58 UTC
Created attachment 47236 [details]
Document that is printed incorrectly

The attached document contains contains a line drawing and an image. When printed under LibreOffice 3.4 (both RC2 and RC1) the image is printed fine, but the drawing is printed at something like three times its size and at an offset.

The drawing is printed correctly if the image is removed.

The offset of the image seems to depend of the printer: printing on my printer and on the PDFCreator virtual printer produced different offsets.

Page preview, the preview on the printer dialog, and the PDF export button all work correctly; the problem appears only when actually printing.

I have reverted to 3.3.2, which does not have this problem.

RC2 is bit by bit identical with release version, so separate items in the version picker are useless. Changes have been discussed with Michael Meeks.
Comment 2 Kriton Kyrimis 2011-06-20 08:01:33 UTC
The problem persists in 3.4.1 RC1.
Comment 3 Kriton Kyrimis 2011-06-28 10:17:08 UTC
The problem persists in 3.4.1 RC2.
Comment 4 Kriton Kyrimis 2011-07-01 17:07:24 UTC
The problem persists in 3.4.1 final.

Now this is getting serious. I can understand having known bugs in 3.4.0, which was intended for early adopters, but 3.4.1 is marked as stable, so printing should work reliably, as it is not some minor feature that only affects a few people. Even if my document is the only known document that produces the bug, this is enough for me not to trust the 3.4.x series with any document that I might want to print.

I have therefore upped the importance of this bug to "high", as a gentle nudge. This is really a blocker for me, and you should consider treating it as such for 3.4.2, as printing is even more important in the enterprise deployments that this release will target.

Back to version 3.3.3 for now...

Seems to have been fixed in 3.4.2 RC1.
