Do you see controls for Landscape? What does it do if you choose it
It is some dicky issue with the Brother driver and LO on Linux. I have 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
the problem.


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.

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.

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.

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