Spreadsheet which refuses to print in portrait orientation in spite of settings
The attached file has the "portrait" property set by Format->page->page but prints in landscape orientation (as it was when first created and printed).
I can't reproduce.

I tried on my own Win 10 x64, and agree it works properly there.
On Xubuntu 14.04, x64, it fails. Both when printing to my network printer and printing to file, it greys out the button that could change the orientation, and prints landscape.
I forgot to mention: LibreOffice is Version: 220.127.116.11

Please take a look to see if this thread can help:
That thread seems to be about a different case. There, as I understand it, a page formatted for landscape was printed portrait and this some of the content bled off the side of the paper. That's not the problem in this bug.
Which printer are you using?
Same printer for Win & Linux?

Do you have "Use only paper size from printer preferences" checked on the "Print-Options" tab?
The print preview shows landscape.
Print -> Options 3 checkbox unchecked for "Use only paper size from printer preferences" as are the other two checkboxes.

I have run into same problem. Can't set format for landscape printing and envelope printing has become impossible.
Regardless of orientation set tp print envelopes, it will print them in portrait mode.
Using Linux Mint with 2 different Epson printers. (NX415 and Artisan 837)
Kevin: do you have an Epson printer?
I do not have an Epson printer. I usually use my HP Color Laserjet CP 2025, but can use a Canon inkjet in an emergency. I noticed this problem on the HP.
Lloyd and Kevin have the opposite problems, though (landscape vs. portrait).
This is a bug that sounds like Kevin's problem: bug 92190. It has been identified as OS X -only, but there was no test on Linux.
I can confirm this problem is still present in Ubuntu 16.04 with a Zebra Technologies ZTC GK420d ZBR6533416, installed under CUPS. I set the size to 4.04x6.06 (4inx6in with 0.02 margin). Then in Format Page set the Orientation to Landscape. This displays the page as 4.04x6.06. I would expect it to print though on a normal 4x6 label. It doesn't. It still prints portrait, it just crops off 2 inches.
I can confirm this problem with version 22.214.171.124 Running on Linux Mint 18, printing to an Epson WF-7520. It does it in all the apps, the only work around is to export it as pdf and use another program.
Please don't change the version, it clearly says "earliest affected".
So far, it looks like Linux-only.
*** Bug 98115 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Let's set to NEW and see, if this will get any traction.
So far, we have the following:
Kevin: on Xubuntu 14.04, x64, LO 126.96.36.199 fails, spreadsheet refuses to print in portrait orientation. Both when printing to his network printer and printing to file, HP Color Laserjet CP 2025
Lloyd: similar problem, can't set format for landscape printing and envelope printing has become impossible, Linux Mint with 2 different Epson printers. (NX415 and Artisan 837)
Raal: no repro with LO master, print to pdf printer, Linux (which?)
Evan: confirm in Ubuntu 16.04 with a Zebra Technologies ZTC GK420d ZBR6533416, installed under CUPS. set the Orientation to Landscape, still prints portrait, it just crops off 2 inches
lance: confirm with LO 188.8.131.52 on Linux Mint 18, printing to an Epson WF-7520.
Timur: no repro in VM Ubuntu 16.04 with print to file nor with Lexmark printer connected as shared USB device from Windows host
No repro on Windows, so far Linux-only where reporduced.
I wouldn't really agree with setting to New until it's clear where the problem is.
BTW Kevin, when reporting bugs, please give immediately in the first post as mush details as you can, after you tested different options.

Sam from Bug 113150:
Using MacOS and L.O. 184.108.40.206. Used other 5+ on website; does the same thing too (was hoping the bleeding edge version would have this fixed). I checked Format > Page and orientation is set to print Portrait. But printer wants to do Landscape. Brother HL-L2340D Series. Do not have any other issues with other programs (including LibreOffice 4+).
For further clarification, when I indicated the problem was having with other 5+ I was NOT clear; my apologies. I was referring to 5.3.6. The problem happens here as well. I downloaded 5.4.2 (which what I was referring to when I said bleeding edge version).
I just downloaded version 220.127.116.11, and this works fine with the printing in Portrait.

Portrait prints landscape
OSX v. 10.12.6 (16G29) iMAC 27" I7 fully updated
Epson WF-4630 printer
Portrait prints landscape
Checked all settings, very carefully in Format->Page, File->Printer Settings, Sidebar->Page->Format, OSX printer settings and Epson print settings/presets.
File->Print Preview is okay
Printing to .pdf followed by printing pdf is okay
Portate setting seems to be overridden to landscape. Please see attached jpeg.
Uninstalled LibreOffice ver. 18.104.22.168 and installed Version: 22.214.171.124
Build ID: 22b09f6418e8c2d508a9eaf86b2399209b0990f4
We had no problems with this computer and printer using LibreOffice in the past. Other programs continue to print fine. I suspect an incomplete or incorrect print handoff is occurring to OSX and/or the print driver. I have been using these style Epson printers for a number of years because of how simple and stable the MAC and driver work together.
Ran the printer firmware updater and found the firmware unto date (epson 9.60). OSX does not need a driver installed from epson you simply plug it in or put it on the lan and it configures itself.
If you can tell me what to test, I will do detailed testing and make and forward log files to you to help pin this down.
My i7 iMAC reliably shows this bug on LibreOffice version 126.96.36.199.
I loaded two older versions side by side with 188.8.131.52:
v184.108.40.206 prints fine
v220.127.116.11 prints fine
v18.104.22.168 retested and still corrupts orientation. Attempts to force it it back by electing opposite orientation does not work.
I don't have other older copies to find out which version went wrong.
I have done all the usual rebooting and reinstalling tricks to no avail.
My MacBook Air, with the same updated OSX v.10.12.6, works fine with the same printer using an older version of LibreOffice v. 22.214.171.124.

Xisco just changed the status. Ken accidentally added himself.
I love libra office, but your latest release prints portrait oriented documents as landscape only. Attempts to change it in the program has not worked. hope you can fix that little problem. In the meantime I have to use another word process program.
I'm experiencing the same problem on a Mac ever since upgrading to 5.4. The latest update doesn't fix this. The Importance of this bug should be changed to Major.
Since Bug 92190 is fixed in 5.4.4 please test this one again with that version.

> Since Bug 92190 is fixed in 5.4.4 please test this one again with that
The latest Ubuntu just has 5.4.2, and I don't usually replace what comes with the system, as I get confused real quickly about what's on which machine. Maybe some of the other subscribers can check this.
See https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/121393/libreoffice-540-writer-portrait-document-prints-as-landscape/ which gives a workaround of resizing the document (say 8.51 x 11.00).
I see this problem with Writer, Epson Artisan 530, Mac OS 10.13.2 High Sierra, LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 (pre-release).

Then this is different from Bug 92190.
Kevin: you can use this without messing up your system: http://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/
That site (http://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com) confuses me a little. What are "fresh" and "still" versions.
In any event, I do not see a 5.4.4+ version. The numbered versions seem to stop at 5.4.3
I tried the 18.104.22.168 preview, and the bug remains, with a few changes....
The orientation in the printer preferences can be set to portrait, which as I recall was not possible before.
However the preview and actual printing are landscape.

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
I can't seem to reproduce this problem on Mac OS X any more, but it's been so long since I've used Libre Office that I'm not sure I'm testing it correctly.
Responding to the request to re-test. I have changed printers from a HP to a Brother, if it matters. What probably matters more is that the upgrade to the OS also upgraded LibreOffice, and I no longer see the problem.
Now on Xubuntu Bionic (18.04.1), and LibreOffice 22.214.171.124, Build 1:6.0.7-0ubuntu0.18.04.5.
In this configuration, portrait printing works just fine.
Thanks for testing, let's close.
