Ok, I'm at my wits end. We have a Canon Imagerunner iR-ADV C5030/5035 UFR II. It has 4 paper trays: 2 for Letter (different orientations), one for Legal, and one for Tabloid. Microsoft Office works fine under the following circumstances, but Libreoffice is driving me crazy.

I create a new blank document (Calc or Writer). I add some data. I click File > Print. The print dialog comes up, showing the little Print Preview, and for Letter and Legal size options, everything works as expected. BUT... If I change the paper size to Tabloid Print dialog does show it in landscape mode, but the paper size is showing as Letter, NOT tabloid. Nothing I can do will change this. It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to print to Tabloid size documents with Libreoffice and this copier.

Anyone have any ideas why Libreoffice is doing this?

I'm guessing here, but Microsoft Office has only one place to define page and paper size, I think, whereas LibreOffice has two: you define page size in Format | Page... but paper size at File | Printer Settings... (or elsewhere). When you start your "new blank document", do you go to Format | Page... | Page | Paper Format and select an appropriate size? If not, you are expecting LibreOffice to scale your printout automatically - or even to rotate it.

But, as I say, I'm guessing.  Printers are never straightforward!

I trust this helps.
