ODS file to demonstrate the bug
When printing a Calc sheet, the page footer print result differs violently from the print preview. The same as with the printout result can be seen with PDF export.
I found 2 major problems, both of which may be interdependent:
* The font does not really look like it does in the preview.
* The footer runs gets cut off on the right side and is printed incompletely.
Attached is a sample ODS file (which was used in an attempt to create a letterhead template for myself). Also attached are two screenshots (one showing the print preview of the footer area, the other showing the print result).
* This used to work with previous versions of LibreOffice (as well as with OpenOffice).
* After upgrading to LibreOffice 4.x, it stopped to work (while it still works with the latest 3.x of Apache OpenOffice).
* The bug now appears in the most recent Apache OpenOffice 4.0.x.

Hi Kurt, thanks for reporting.
As you can see in the attached file generated from your ods file without any modification, I can not reproduce the issue.
Try resetting user profile, sometimes solves strange issues.

Oh, thanks a lot for your effort, mariosv! I'm glad it worked for you, so there
is a good chance your hint at resetting my user profile will work for me too!

Following the advice from comment #3, I shut down LibreOffice, renamed my old user profile (this is a Mac) from
/Users/<user name>/Library/Application\ Support/libreoffice/4/user
/Users/<user name>/Library/Application Support/libreoffice/4/user.old-2014feb7
restarted LO, downloaded my bug demo file from this report again to repeat the test: no luck, still the same problem.
@mariosv, I envy you :-)
Footer in provided example prints as expected to both PDF and networked HP4050TN under Debian 7 x86_64 running v18.104.22.168.

Kurt, you have not indicated which specific versions of LO you have experienced this problem with. Can you try either v22.214.171.124 or v126.96.36.199 to see if the problem persists? Status set to NEEDINFO. Please set status back to UNCONFIRMED once the required information is provided / tasks are performed. Thanks.
Summary amended for clarity.
Please @Kurt, is the issue solved?

> Please @Kurt, is the issue solved?
No, the issue remains on my current system
- Mac OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite
- LibreOffice 188.8.131.52
Have you tried changing the footer font?, to be sure it's not an issue related with it.
Only another person that reproduces the bug should set it to New.
When reply is provided, please set back as Unconfirmed.
No repro with test file on
Build ID: 066b007f5ebcc236395c7d282ba488bca6720265
CPU Threads: 2; OS Version: Mac OS X 10.11.6; UI Render: default;

so this is WFM
Both the header and footer print correctly without any truncation.
I confirm this works now on LO v 184.108.40.206 [Build ID: ea7cb86e6eeb2bf3a5af73a8f7777ac570321527; CPU threads: 8; OS: Mac OS X 10.12.6; UI render: default; Locale: de-DE (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group].
Thanks to whoever fixed it!
