from this file wrong prints all borders - page, all tables. It looks like borders increased by 5-10 from left-top page corner
Comment 5 Cor Nouws 2013-03-19 13:41:41 UTC
I cannot reproduce this on Linux with 4.0.1rc2 and 4.0.2rc1. 
However, I didd not install the Russian languagepack

Please see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62719#c4.
Comment 9 A D 2013-03-27 12:13:26 UTC
I can confirm bug 62719, printed tables have no borders, also i use HP printers
Comment 10 tiberX 2013-04-11 14:09:06 UTC
Same problem.
Either lines of a table in the wrong place or not a bit printed
Printer: new BROTHER, older SAMSUNG
Comment 11 Laurent 2013-04-14 15:54:56 UTC
I have a similar problem (w7 64bits / epson B40W)
The borders of the header are printed more low by in the page.
Also vertical border between columns becomes horizontal.
The problem disappears when switching to LO 3.6

On the other hand, there's no problem when converting to pdf.

(Please excuse me for my approximate English)
Comment 12 Joel Madero 2013-04-15 03:45:16 UTC
This is almost undoubtedly NOTOURBUG, the reason I say this is because the print to pdf works. 

Within LibreOffice Print -> Options -> Print to File

Click Print, name the pdf, push print to file..

If the result of that is right, then it's not our bug. This is EXACTLY what we send to the printer, if the outcome is bad is is more than likely a driver problem for the printer. 

To test further, if the PDF is right, print from your pdf viewer, if the result is bad again, this is further proof that it's the print driver.

Marking as NOTOURBUG - if:

1. You print to file and it looks funky too, mark as UNCONFIRMED and we will reinvestigate

2. You print to pdf, looks fine, prints fine, mark as UNCONFIRMED

If you find that it's your driver, I recommend reporting a bug against your printer driver.

I can't agree it's a problem with drivers. I have the same problem with Lexmark printer.
Comment 14 Joel Madero 2013-04-16 14:21:12 UTC
what about a print to pdf?
Comment 15 Timur 2013-04-19 08:25:58 UTC
Similar to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62719#c4, Export as PDF works fine, and Print doesn't. I tested with libreoffice-4-0~2013-04-19_04.53.00_LibO-Dev_4.0.4.0_Win_x86 on Windows 7 64bit with direct print to printer Lexmark and printing to PDF with PDFill and BullZip software.
Comment 16 Timur 2013-04-26 08:37:25 UTC
Can you please respond? I suggest it be set as NEW and given some higher importance. 
I find that "Importance" is not clear for end-user, nor is it explained at https://bugs.freedesktop.org/page.cgi?id=fields.html#importance, so I kindly ask you to add an explanation.

Getting another QA person involved.

Bjoern - tough one here, thoughts?

This still isnt anwsered, right? Does generating a pdf and then physically printing it work?

Contains OLE objects. Thankfully, it's been recently fixed.
