LibreOffice 4.1 cannot print in LandScape Mode.

So far my fix, is to reopen the .odt file (created by LibreOffice-writer), and print it in landscape mode using AbiWord.

It is not a great fix, but do the job!
So it is great to have a common FOS file format!

I may have the same problem.

On Fedora 19, with libreoffice

I have a spreadsheet that is best printed in landscape.  The print dialogue shows it in landscape.  Printing it comes out in portrait, truncated.  I go into properties (for the printer) and switch between landscape and portrait with no effect.

Note: the spreadsheet could be printed in two portrait pages, but only one is printed.

When I export to PDF, I can use evince to print the result in landscape mode.  That makes me think that this is a problem with LibreOffice.

Is this the same bug as https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=50511 ?
That is an older version of LibreOffice.

How about https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=57704

This report is quite intriguing: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65506

It says that the problem is experienced if LO has documents in both orientations open.  In my case, the spreadsheet had two sheets; I only cared about the one in landscape, but there was a second one in portrait.

(The export to PDF printed both, even though I only wanted the one.  But they were both correctly oriented.)

I deleted the second sheet and again tried to print.  Same problem.  So deleting the portrait sheet doesn't solve the problem.  Maybe there is some remnant of it in LibreOffice's state and that is sustaining the problem.  So I do think that 65506's report might be important.

Hi all, we really need some testing documents I think please attach that and I'm happy to test against that. Landscape printing works fine for me in LO spreadsheet on OS X 10.8.4.

This is a dupe of #50511.
