Description Bruce Epper 2014-12-03 18:51:46 UTC
When attempting to print a spreadsheet in portrait mode on a Brother HL-2270DW printer, portrait mode must be selected in the Printer Preferences AND the print dialog box.  If it is selected only in the Printer Preferences, it is still printed in landscape mode.  If it is only selected in the Print dialog box, it will print in landscape mode but with the fit settings of Portrait (truncates the bottom rows).

Was not able to confirm that printing a spreadsheet in portrait requires
selecting portrait in printer preferences for my printer and in the print
dialog box.  Selecting portrait in the print dialog box was sufficient, 
even with my printer preferences set to landscape, to get a printout in 

Using Windows 7, Libre Office Version and an HP ENVY 5530 printer.
