Description Tribunal Federal 2011-12-29 05:56:11 UTC
Created attachment 54937 [details]
Sample document and Snapshot of the 2 preview screens

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open  the attached document (form_test.odt)
2) execute print preview from menu (File/Page Preview)
3) and then click to « File/Print  » => here the preview document in the print windows was not the same as the result with step 2 (see Print_Preview.png)

Expected behavior:
The 2 kind of print preview screens show the same as what should be printed
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2013-05-01 08:01:17 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

The FILE -> PAGE PREVIEW is not showing a correct preview. 
In the field "Entrée" and in the large text box in the bottom the font sizes are changed in the preview.  The field "Entrée" shows only the first line, but not the second line.  The large text box in the bottom shows no correct line break.

On the other side the File/Print Preview shows a correct preview (to compare it, it is better to enlarge the dialog box with the mouse pointer).

Not reproducible for me with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 14.10 x86-64.

Note: to get the preview in the print dialog, you need to choose the LibreOffice print dialog in the options: menu Tools > Options > LibreOffice > General.
