The effect occurs regardless which printer(driver) has been taken and also occurs with Win 7 32/64 Pro.
Comment 3 Alexandros Gougousoudis 2013-04-23 09:48:07 UTC
The document created like this, printed without problems in OpenOffice 3.2.1
Comment 4 Alexandros Gougousoudis 2013-04-23 10:04:13 UTC
Same bug found in Version (Build ID: a67943cd4d125208f4ea7fa29439551825cfb39)

This one is at least related to "Bug 63585 - PRINTING: particular .ODT is printed without table borders and some elements are not on their places", "Bug 60280 - PRINTING of TABLE borders, borders around paragraphs and footer, some graphic elements suppressed by OLE objects in document"

For now I mark it as DUP

@Alexandros Gougousoudis:
Please watch fixes for Bug 63585 and reopen this bug if the reported problem will persist although that bug and related one will have been fixed

Comment 6 Alexandros Gougousoudis 2013-04-23 12:16:03 UTC
Thx. Any idea when it'll be fixed? 

This bug causes massive impact in our work, because a lot of people can't print out their old documents with the right layout, after the migration from OO 3.2.1.

Workaround: Export as PDF and print with PDF-Viewer or switch off printing of bitmaps in printing dialog.
