I have just switched from LiBo V 3.4.5 to LiBo V without any apparent problems except for the following : I use mostly WRITER to print and fax. Until the upgrade ,I would ,on completing a document, press the shortcut CTRL-P ,select the required printer and print or fax depending on my selection. As of the change to v when I use the CTRL-P shortcut LiBO freezes up ,no command works ,no printer dialogue shows up and I ,in the end, have to use the ESC key in order to to go back to my document . As a workaround for printing, the PRINT icon in the standard toolbar will print immediately but will not allow me to select a printer therefore I cannot select a different printer.. The workaround for faxing (which I still have to use as some companies will not deal with e-mail) is to export the document as a PDF, and then I can send it as a fax by selecting the fax option through the printer dialogue of my PDF application. I have also noticed that the option : Tools/Options/LibreOffice writer/Print, in the setting OTHER (bottom left of open dialogue window) will always revert to FAX (even though I select the NONE option in that dialogue, (since I use the fax printer driver and have no dedicated fax software) once I close the Options dialogue and restart LiBo, I have also tried placing the Send Default Fax in the STANDARD TOOLBAR hoping that it would work as well as the Print File Directly Icon bur all I get if I try it is the following message:

No fax printer has been set under Tools/Options/Text document/ Print

This option "text Document" does not appear to exist in V Tools/Options or if it does it is cunningly disguised and I cannot find it. I can only assume that the CTRL-P shortcut starts looking for a non existent printer and also that the the constant reverting to the fax option in in the OPTIONS dialogue is a bug... but has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution?

Here is my system:
OS: win XP sp3 with all patches
AV: Microsoft security essentials
PRINTER: Lexmark 5400 series
               Epson 1290
FAX: Microsoft fax driver

All drivers are  up to date.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help with this as I am completely at a loss..
