Where in LibreOffice do you get this?

I just go to print a document.
File / Print
General /Properties
The paper tray drop down does not include the bypass tray
Also if you go to Device to select the paper in the options
there are only 13 paper types listed. This printer has 21 types
( which show up in other applications )

Is that what you meant ?

Yes, thanks. (it could have been that you referred to information on the page style, although that is not so logic.)

I guess LibreOffice gets its information via the printer driver. And for me that's a terra incognita. Could it be that the bypass is automatically selected once you open it, or fill it? I think that the paper types are not relevant here. That are sort of definitions, referring in the end simply to the existing trays.


Since we lease the printers I have spoken to both the engineers and the training department as I was hoping they could be set that way but these printers needs to be told to use the bypass - it doesn't select it automatically ( like small HP printers which if you put something in the bypass it will take it
from there preferentially. )

The paper types don't just refer to the tray to take the paper from. They also tell the printer how fast to feed the paper through the machine. For example thick3 is used for t-shirt printing paper and that
has to go through really slowly otherwise the toner doesn't stick.

We have a really nasty work around for the t-shirt paper. That is, we put it in tray 3 and set that tray to thick1 ( which LO does show ) which slows the paper a bit. Then we also select 1200 dpi instead of the normal 600 which slows it even more and it works. However this does use up a tray and you can also only get away which doing 2 or 3 pages then you have to put a blank sheet through from a normal
tray to clean the rollers.

best wishes
