Description sgsukrit 2014-07-15 23:11:53 UTC
Created attachment 102873 [details]
Contains odt & pdf file

I've attached the original odt file & PDF file obtained by File>Export as PDF.
When I printed the file, it was giving half print of the page only i.e. it was giving first 2 photos complete & printed about 90% of the next 2 photos & no photo thereafter(I tried using PDF file only).

So I captured a screenshot of the PDF file & printed this image. Exactly same result!

Now I cropped the photo so that it contains only the last 5 photos, & printed it, now the photos were printed.

Now I cropped the photo so that it contains photos 3 & 4, now I get result similar to the first print i.e. both photos get printed about 90%.

You can determine why it happened.

I can NOT confirm this bug. For me – in all the cases bellow - it always printed all the nine pictures correctly [on my black and white printer] in the same way. Also the preview-s were always correct.

- printing the attached original Photos6.pdf file with Evince
- File->Export to PDF (exporting directly to PDF) and than print with Evince
- File->Exporting …   and then selecting the output format as PDF (in two steps) and than print with Evince
- open the attached Photos6.pdf with LO and print it from Draw

My test system:
LinuxMint 17 Cinnamon
LibreOffice  Build id: 420m0(Build:2)
Evince 3.10.3 (used for printing)
printer: HP LaserJet 1000
system-config-printer 1.4.3
HPLIP-3.14.3 version is installed

Was the screenshot OK? Were all the nine pictures shown properly on the screen?

The page format (in the .odt) and the paper size (in the pdf) are Letter (216 x 279 mm). Is it what you expected?

Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided the requested informations.
