I am writing a page in landscape mode (US Letter) and in 2 columns but
when I print it keep printing in portrait mode. Here is what I did:
* I created a new page (US Letter default to portrait)
* then Format->Page->Page -> checked Landscape
* then Format->Page->Columns ->2
Typed in some test text in both columns and printed the page, but the
page keeps coming out in "Portrait" format.
What am I missing?
After fiddling quite a bit and passing through pages multiple times
though my printer here is the solution:
For some reason, LibreOffice, at the point of print, will open the
print window and choose the printer driver "pdf" for my Samsung
printer, which will not allow any "landscape" formatted documents at
all (even without columns). It will only print in "portrait" mode.
The fix is to change the driver to "PostScript"
(Print->Properties->Device(tab)->Printer Language Type-> "PostScript
(Level from driver))
I believe this is a problem with the system setup and less to do with
LibreOffice. However, Acrobat Reader does print correctly in cases
where landscape mode is not possible.
Thanks for all of the help and suggestions!
