Please check how the 1st page prints.  It won't recognize the full print rage ability of the printer for the bottom margin.

After removing the margins for Top, Left, Right and Bottom, plus removing the footer and header options, the printer is able to print to it's maximum area for Top, Left, and Right sides.  But the bottom continues to leave a 1.5 inch of non-printable space.

I've used the same spreadsheet in excel and it has no problem printing well beyond the range that Libre Office does, with both ranges maxed.

I'm calling this a bug because the Top, Left and Right margins are defined the same way that the Bottom margin is, however they behave differently when the sheet is printed.

After removing both the footer and the bottom margin, the spreadsheets printed with Libre Office still leave a good 1.5 inch distance of blank space at the bottom.

I don't have this issue with Excel, so I don't think it's the printer.  Plus the top, left, and right margins print much closer to the edge (about 4 millimeters), whereas the bottom has a good 3 centimeters from the edge of the page.

Confirmed, even defining a print area doesn't change the space left at the bottom. Set to New, change plateform to all. Verified with Version:
