Thank you, Virgil; I'll give those suggestions a try (& luckily, as the document in question is a Fraternal body's By-Laws, there are no foot-notes). I'll be ery happy if either of them works -- though, of course, I'd be happiest to actually understand what caused the problem, to begin with. But, then i do realize that we all too seldom get what we want, especially when it would actually be good for us.

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)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Re: some text not printing

    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 spreadsheets.
    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
look bleak.

        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.
