I don't know what OS is being used here, but if Linux, then CUPS allows
a default printer to be selected. When selected in CUPS, this printer
should be the default printer that is highlighted in the LO print
dialog. Optionally, printer and printer settings can be changed on a
per-document basis by using the File -> Printer Settings option in LO.
Once that is set and the document saved, all subsequent loading of that
document should have the same printer settings as when last saved. Oh,
one must also select Tools -> Options -> Load Save -> General and select
"Load printer settings with the document" to enable this behavior. One
downside of this is if the document is sent to someone else, it will
still try to print on the now-nonexistent printer, or the wrong printer
if still on the same LAN. In that case, the settings could be changed
or use Ctrl-P to bring up the print dialog and change the
printer/settings. I use this feature for printing envelopes repeatedly,
which require different printer settings than documents. Works for me.

Do you see controls for Landscape? What does it do if you choose it
seen some discussion and it is just as easy to print to PDF and print
Actually, I also have a Brother printer and the same fix is to choose
the correct device drive with through LibreOffice.
Print->Properties->Device and choose PostScript Level 3. This fixes
Thanks. It does too. But I can't set this permanently. The settings in
spadmin won't stick.
Yes, Tim and I are not sure if this is a problem with LibreOffice or
with our systems. The device sticks until you exit out of
LibreOffice. If you open LibreOffice again, you have to change the
device again. I wonder if anyone else has this problem where the
device defaults to the wrong one and you have to manually change it
each time you open a fresh version of LibreOffice.
Hi. It's a widely discussed issue for some time.
If the save icon is grayed out when you try to save the document printer
settings, just add and delete something anywhere in the document and it
should be enabled again.
Hope this helps.
