Thanks, I set the printer as postscript instead of PDF in my default
template and all is good for new documents.

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.

It is some dicky issue with the Brother driver and LO on Linux. I

Do you see controls for Landscape? What does it do if you choose it
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.
