This may not be at all helpful, as I am by no means an LO expert, but
I have a couple ideas...
1. Have you tried saving it to a PDF file? I was once getting strange
printing behavior when I used LO with the Linux Libertine font, but if
I saved it to a PDF file first, my output showed up properly.
2. Also, when I get strange behavior in a formatted document, as a
last resort, I'll save it as a straight text (.txt) file with all
formatting stripped. I can then test it to see if it will print
properly. If so, I can then rebuild the formatting. It's a pain, yes,
but it's better than retyping the whole document. (But, as a caution,
saving as a .txt file will also strip your footnotes)

Thanks for your reply.
When I copied & pasted the page in question, the result was
unchanged; all was visible on-screen, but the 2 last paragraphs did not
print. In those 2 paragraphs, I am unable to find any setting which
would account for their 'going invisible'...
As to the Help "changes">"review function" -- that does not seem to
have any join to what my problem is, in fact it only refers to
I see that you are in London -- not that that, or where my dad's
family comes from has a thing to do with anything, but I'll toss it in
anyway; my dad's father was from the village of Arnold in
Nottinghamshire UK & came to the USA on the Lucitania (sister ship to
the ill-fated Lusitania), on its last voyage across the Atlantic before
WWI. I had an Uncle Harry Noone, from Notts, who was a Crown Chauffeur
[I may have the term wrong, but he drove for the Government], had been
Master of two different Masonic Lodges there, and spent his final days
as a resident of the Masonic Home in York
Any way, thanks for your attempts to help - small world & seemingly
smaller, daily & if we are not helping one another, thing would really

Seems I've found a new & especially annoying problem.
A document I've had on disk for several years & have printed
without problems before, has now come to the point where some
paragraphs do not print at all - although they appear on-screen OK &
I can find no formatting or other setting difference between the
text which prints & that which does not, except that one does & the
other does not print.
I really do not wish to have to completely re-enter the
entire document, all over again (& hope that whatever caused the
non-print problem does not occur again, anyway).
Does any one have any thoughts as to a possible cause -- I
will investigate all angles I'm able to do.
Thanks for your assistance.

What happens if you copy/paste one of the offending paragraphs into a
new and otherwise empty Writer document and then print that? Does
that give you any clues?
Are the offending paragraphs the result of tracked changes (Reviews)
which have been suppressed/rejected?
See the Help under "changes">"review function" - at least that's
where it is in OpenOffice; I don't have LO on this system.
