This is an example of Publisher output. Unable to attach Libre output as only 1 file can be added

Problem description: 
Having previously used Microsoft Publisher, I noted that release 4 now provides support for .pub files. One of the features missing in Libre is the ability to produce greeting cards with sides on 1 sheet of card which when folded into 4 produces a greeting card.

Steps to reproduce:
1. ....
2. ....
3. ....

Current behavior:
Printing a card currently prints 4 pages straight down the page.

Expected behavior:

See attachment Publisher Card.pdf

              
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 4.0.0.3 release

Hi Ray, could you please attach the MS document in question so this can be tested against?
Comment 2 retired 2013-09-08 06:52:58 UTC
Also you might re-try with the latest LO release and see if that works for you: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

Printed Output from Libre 5

This attachment is a PDF of the printed output from Libre. Attachment 85408 [details] is the result from Publisher.

You will note that Publisher prints all 4 images on 1 page, which can then be folded to produce a greetings card. Libre produces 4 pages of printed output.

second - I don't see images on 2,3 and 4 page - import from PUB became worst => regression for another bug?

Comment 15 paulystefan 2020-06-21 23:06:30 UTC
In 7.0.0.0 beta2 x64 win 10 x64
problems with pictures are solved for me

for print in pdf, the workaround is to rotate 2 pages 
and print pdf 4 pages to one a4-page
