Description Stewart 2014-09-23 14:10:46 UTC
I am trying to create business cards using:
- Ubuntu 14.04 (64 bit)
- LibreOffice - Writer
- Avery Business Cards #8371 (10 - 2x3.5 cards - 2 columns, 5 rows on 8.5x11 sheets)

I go to 'File' - 'New' - Business Cards and click to start the wizard.

I finish creating the card and then synchronize the page. So far, so good.

Next, I print the page and find that the printing does not align vertically with the Avery card sheet. Specifically, even though the Top Margin says 0.50" in the setup, the actual margin printed is 1". Same on the bottom. 

I cannot print the cards if they are not aligned with the Avery card sheet and I cannot find a way to fix the problem manually.

Please help!

tested with Version:
Build ID: 7f3628e54d4470cac6d51659d1b1bec5fb4f4e70
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@46-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2015-03-14_00:35:32

and print is correct - top margin is 0,5". But I have A4, not letter paper size. Please could you retest with actual version ( http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ )  if bug still occurs for you? Thank you

Got an e-mail from reporter that the problem was in printer driver version and new version of drivers solved the issue. So closing the bug as worksforme.
